Hays and I have so much to be thankful for that this list could literally go on for days and days. I will narrow it down to the top 10.
First and foremost, we are thankful for a Heavenly Father that loves us more than our minds and souls can ever imagine. We are thankful for the plan He has ordained for our lives even though we are not always certain about it.
Secondly, I am thankful for a Godly husband that cares so deeply for me and his children. He is always putting himself on the back burner and never wants recognition for all he does.
Thirdly, I am thankful for our children that fill our days with pure joy (some frustration too), love, smiles, kisses, hugs and avenues to learn more about ourselves and our Godly Father.
Fourth, for a house that has become a home throughout the last few years. It is NEVER clean and always a mess but it is filled with childrens laughter and the pitter patter of little feet and I will be sad to leave the memories in the house one day.
Fifth, I am thankful for the means to be able to afford and pay for the medical bills that have accumulated in the last few months. The Lord supplies all of our needs and for that I am thankful.
Number 6. I am thankful for warm coffee in the mornings (even if I have to heat it up several times before finishing it).
Seven, would be music and the joy and healing it brings. Music is so powerful and soothing.
Eight, I am thankful for God's beautiful creation. Trees, the sky, sunsets, sunrises, flowers, animals. I could go on forever.
Nine. Thankful for the friends and family we have been blessed with. They stick by us through thick and thin and never veer away.
Lastly, I am thankful for another year. I have learned so much through this year. I have experienced so much joy and pure happiness through this year. I have also experienced sorrow through this year. I am grateful for this year and for this blessed ride called life.
