I am Thankful For...

I am thankful for many things this holiday season. More than I have ever been thankful for before, I think. :-)

I am thankful beautiful babies, who brighten my day, bring me up when I am down, and make my life complete.

I am thankful amazing, hard working husband who busts his you-know-what every day so I can stay home and be a mama, and to provide for his family and give us everything we need and then some.

I am thankful for...God blessing us with children! We tried so hard to get pregnant, and 3 years, 3 miscarriages, and 2 rounds of Clomid later, we were finally blessed with our twins! GOD IS GREAT!

I am thankful true friends who have never "stabbed me in the back" and accept me for me and are always there when I really need them.

I am thankful adopted family. They took me in when I had nowhere to go so I wouldn't be a foster child forever, and helped me through some of the most difficult times in my life.

I am thankful birth mom. Many people wouldn't understand how I could be thankful for her, after everything she did to me. But, how can I NOT be thankful for her? She gave me LIFE. She is responsible for putting me on this earth, and semi-raising me, and despite everything she did to me for 6 years of my life, we had a great mother-daughter bond, and I can't NOT be thankful for that.

I am thankful for...a roof over my head. There are so many people in this world who are homeless and it's so sad to see. I never take for granted the fact that I am lucky enough to have a roof over my head and a warm place to sleep every day and night.

I am thankful for...French Vanilla coffee creamer. It makes my mornings a little bit easier...not to mention, sweeter. ;-)

I am thankful on my table. Need I say more?

I am thankful health, and the health of my friends and family.

I am thankful for...the beauty of nature. Sunsets, snow falls, rainbows...

This year, there is so much to be thankful for, and really, my list could go on and on, but this post would be much too long if I continued!
