Thankful Today!

Today I was watching my kids play and was overwhelmed with thankfulness! And I started really reflecting on how good I have it! Our family life is similar to most...committments to honor, schedules to meet, misunderstandings with communication, and the stress and struggles that accompany all of those things. Unfortunately, I tend to lose focus of all God has placed in my very undeserving hands.
Today I am thankful! I am the wife of a Godly man, a committed man, a man that I am proud of and am very much in love with! I am the mommy of a smart, vivacious, tender-hearted, precious three year old girl who makes my heart swell with emotion and love. I am the mommy of a busy, smiley, funny little guy that has stolen my heart and who has changed me forever. Today I am so thankful!

Perspective is a funny thing. Nothing special happened today. Nothing out of the ordinary shook my thinking or emotions. Nothing special came by way of mail or phone. Yet...still today I am very thankful!

I am undeserving, but God is gracious and so today I am thankful!

"From the fullness of His grace we have all received one blessing after another."~John 1:16

This is what makes my heart swell with thankfulness today!...

Sweet baby boy!

My precious girl!My most amazing husband in his element...just one of the reasons I love him so much and feel overwhelmed that I was chosen to be his bride!

Like I said...I AM thankful today!!
