Happy Thanksgiving

I hope you are all having a fabulous Thanksgiving Day!! And enjoying the time you are spending with family and loved ones and eating your yummy dinners, that we all love so much...
I am Thankful for my friend Jessica who was my bestest friend in high school for always being a good example to me. We had the best times together and never got in any trouble (not too much trouble anyway) but more than that she introduced, Chad and I together.
I am so thankful for Chad and how supportive he is of me and my many "projects" that I have. And for the love and charity that he has shown my family over the well, last 10 years. And for sticking with me through it all. I am thankful for Chad and for all he does for our family with working full time and going to school, I know it's a lot so thank you!!! I am thankful for the job that he has and the flexibility that they have given him with working with his schedule for school. I can go on and on about Chad and all that I am thankful for, because of him, but that would send me into a big blubbering mess and we are going to be eating soon, and I don't want to explain the splotchy face and swollen eyes...I'll just say thank you and I LOVE YOU!!!

I am so thankful for my 2 little angels. Austin and Alyssa are full of it, most of the time and have my head spinning most days, but I remind myself how fast time goes and try to "enjoy" these moments, because they don't last very long. I am so thankful to have such sensitive tender kids that love me so very much, I love how they come crawl into bed with me each and every morning and either fall back asleep with me, or just play with my hair as we lay there in silence...the best part of my day!! I love you guys so very much!!!! More than you will ever know!!! I know have a glimpse at the love that Our Heavenly Father has for us all.

I am so thankful for my crazy dysfunctional family. We may not always get along or see eye to eye but we are ALWAYS there for each other, because we learned at a very young age, that all we have is each other. I am thankful for my bro/sis in laws, because I really do think of you as my family and I love the friendships that we all have. I am glad to be able to be part of such a wonderful family!

I am so very very very very very very THANKFUL and indebted to forever. OUR PARENTS. I really don't know where we would be in our lives without having your influence and assistance and knowledge and arms to run to and shoulders to cry on. You guys are the best, and the tears are starting so....THANK YOU!!! I LOVE YOU!!
I am so thankful for our families and the knowledge that I have that families ARE forever!!!

I am thankful for the little money that we do have and for our warm home and comfortable bed and my poor fitting clothes and shoes that keep my feet protected and warm (even though I kick them off the second I have the chance) I am thankful for the country we live in and the freedoms we enjoy and the luxuries of life that I take for granted on a daily basis (electricity, running water etc...) I am thankful for my talents that I am watching grow before my eyes and am thankful for the success of a business I never though possible that I have had so far and the friends that I have made and wonderful people I have got to meet that chose me to capture a few pages of their life story...

I think we are so blessed and I am thankful for this day to remind us to stop and think of all those things that we are blessed with that cannot be numbered. I am loving this season of my life and I hope I can try to remember each day that this is just a moment in time, it will change in a blink of an eye and to be thankful always of the blessings we have.
