Thankful


Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I have so much to be thankful for...




* My husband who loves me, flaws and all. He holds me up, he makes me laugh, he gets me and I get him, my very best friend, the love of my life. I thank God for him!
* Bug, my 10 year old man-child. I love him for all that he is... funny, charming, smart-mouthed, loving, witty, intelligent, gorgeous, sarcastic, stand-offish, independent, loyal, and everything else that makes him who his is... fully mine. Thank you God for the gift that he is.
* Monkey, my 7 year old little boy. I love him for being madly in love with his family, funny, silly, cuddly, sneaky, needy, high-maintenance, charming, outgoing, friendly, smart, eager, and a little bit mine, and a lot his daddy's. Thank you God for allowing me to have him in my life.
* My extended family: My mom, my dad, my mother-in-law, my father-in-law, my step-people, my in-law people, my aunts, my uncles, my cousins. Thank you for each of these.
* My family by choice: My wonderful friends - the ones I've known forever, the ones I've recently met. I don't trust easily, but for those to whom I've given my trust, I trust them completely and I thank God for them daily.
* My students, who bring joy to my life everyday. I love them as though they are my own. Thank you for making me laugh every day, for making me crazy on occasion, and for trusting me with who you are. I love you just as God has created you.

I have been blessed beyond measure, beyond all that I deserve. I will thank God forever for His grace and His love and the life I have only because of who He is and who He allows me to be.
