Give Thanks

I've tried every year since I started this blog to do a list of things I am thankful for.  Since I more than likely won't get on the computer tomorrow, I thought I'd post my list of things I am thankful for today.  This is in no way EVERYTHING I am thankful for...there is just too much because I am one blessed girl!  But, these are just a few things that come to mind when I think about the past year.

My boys.  They are my biggest fans.  And they ALWAYS keep me laughing!  For that I am thankful.  Nathan does a great job providing for our family and always making sure we are taken care of.  He is the perfect example of a leader.  Porter is the funniest little boy you will ever meet!  He is always wanting to make people laugh and always showing out.  I am so thankful for a healthy, happy baby boy.  What a blessing he is to his daddy and I!

Our jobs.  Nathan and I were both blessed with new positions in new companies within the last 3 months.  Mine has allowed me to stay home with Porter and Nathan's has allowed him to pursue his dream job. 

Our big ole' families.  From our moms and dads, to our siblings, to the many aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents we have, we are beyond blessed to be so close to our families!  We still have get togethers every holiday (and sometimes in between!) with all sides of both of our families and I love it.  I don't know many people that still do that.  I love, love, love my family.

Our home.  It's warm, cozy and somewhere we love coming after a long day at work. 

Church family.  We have been blessed with a GREAT small group.  We met our best friends in our small group and have watch our friends get married, start families and go through wonderful and hard times with them.  I am so thankful for this group of people.

Health.  I always know this is a blessing but this one is one I alllllways take for granted.  This past year has reminded me just how big of a blessing being healthy and having a healthy baby is. 

Like I said, I have a thousand other things I could write here.  This is just a small, small portion of what I am thankful for.  What are you thankful for this year?

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!
