I am thankful for so much.

I am blessed to have a wonderful man who loves me and made me his wife.

I have children who bring me joy.

I have friends who keep me grounded.

I have not just a house to live in but a home to grow with my family by my side.

I  have a pastor and a church that keep me focused living every day in the Word.

Most importantly, I am thankful that I have a Savior who loves me so much, that He gave His earthly life so that just by accepting His love and sacrifice I can live my life by His side for eternity.

I am forever thankful to be so abundantly blessed.

Thankful Season

What are you thankful for?

I know a bunch of people really love to do the daily post on facebook, twitter, google+ and their blogs about the things they are thankful for.

Hey, I am that girl!!

you know it!

Day 11:

I am thankful for my time alone with God in the mornings.

It refreshes me and starts my day off on the right foot.

Thank you God for our precious time together!


Then I feel bad on weekends or busy days when I missed posting.

So my next post is more like this:

Days 8,9&10

Becca spring 2008 001Thankful that this little cutie is in my life to keep me smiling!!

She is so precious and has the most giving heart.

This weekend she made cookies and dinner for our neighbor who is doing poorly health wise and her husband so he would not have to cook just for himself. This girl is a blessing from God, not just to me, but to everyone who has the pleasure of meeting her. She is a great inspiration to her big sister and a great role model for her little sister. This girl is going to be a fabulous wife and mother one day!!

What a lucky mommy I am!!


I love these posts, I just always feel I am not posting what I may want to really post because of confidentiality in some situations…sometimes for the giver…sometimes for the receiver…sometimes because the actions mean more when they are done anonymously.

This year I decided to try something new.

Hey we changed October traditions, why not November too?

So here is what I am trying.

Instead of posting to the world what I am thankful for,

I am writing to my family.

131Every day they get a new reason why I am thankful for them.

127Each kiddo (and Dad) has their own reason.

Each one is unique for each past day and what that person did.

Like Rebecca taught Belle how to braid hair the other day.

How cool is that??

So I wrote it down and left it on the sideboard for her to see.

Then when they have read them I am putting them in a “blessing box”.

130On thanks giving we can go over them or maybe I will just save them till next year and see how our blessings have changed.

I think I will even start putting a special blessing from me to each of them randomly out there through out the month.

I think this will be a special family tradition.

I am excited to see how this plays out!

Do you have any special family traditions that have meant much to your heart?

I just love things like that!!

I would love to hear them!!

I want to start new more meaningful and personal type traditions with my family, that they can in turn use with theirs as they begin to have their own.

A family legacy…worth more than gold.

132Have a blessed day friend!
