Thanksgiving...

As I sit here at 1 in the morning... I just got done cleaning the house, mopping the floor, fixing Christmas decorations, and doing all the cooking and preparing I can the day before Thanksgiving... I contemplate all the things that I am thankful this year...

-my husband, whom i could not live without... my best friend, my soul mate, my life. I am so blessed that God has given me such a wonderful and caring man to spend the rest of my life with.

-my mother and father... i love them more and more every day and realize exactly why i would never want to move far away!

-my in-laws... yep, they're alright!!! haha... i'm blessed, i really am...

-my grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins... i'm blessed to have a family that loves each other, free of conflict, and overflowing with compassion and love.

-my puppy dog... Sophie!!! I really do love this little pup... she brings a smile to my day, every day...

-my husband has a brand new job he will be starting on Monday, December 1st... it is one that we are very excited about, both for the money and the opportunity.

-my graduation from COLLEGE... December 18th!!!!

-my friends... whether i need a shoulder to cry on or a relief from sheer boredom, they're always there...

-my home, though small and "not ours"... it's a roof over our heads and we're just fine!
-we both have cars that work... knock on wood, they're on their last legs! but they work!
-And Lastly... the honor and privalege to come to know Miss Holly Rebecca Tilley and become one of her good friends... also the honor and privalege to see Joshua Ryan and Emma Grace McKinney... though we think they were taken from all of us way too soon, the time that i saw them was truly an amazing and unforgettable experience... I know this will be a hard holiday for both of these families and i'm praying for them every day...


I could go on and on about the blessings God has given to me... I has been a wonderful wonderful year... I couldnt ask for more...
