Thankful Thursday

2008 was an interesting year filled with hard times for so many. Although it has been a rough year, I feel filled to overflowing with peace, contentment (on the rise) and joy. Life is sweet, sometimes bittersweet.

I am thankful for...

Being able to live in a country where I can love God with all my heart, soul, mind and strength without fear.

Justin, he works so hard for our family and I am more in love with him today than I was 11 years ago, he also gets funnier and funnier as the years pass which makes for occasional side splitting laughter.

Caeden, always talking, full of life little boy. I love his spirit and the excitement he has for life.

Maleiah, learning to talk more and more, beauty of mine. Determined and fearless, I want to be more like her.

Our extended family, for their support and love. I enjoy all the time we spend with them.

Our friends, old and new...this has been an awesome year for new and a deeper year for the old. I am so blessed by both and feel uplifted by all of them!

Our home, though it may not be ours for long, I am blessed as I walk through the doors and see that we have made it our home and it reflects US.
