Blessings Abound!

This Thanksgiving, I have so much to be thankful for, so many wonderful blessings have been bestowed upon me this year and I give all the praise and glory to my faithful God.

Here are just a few of the many things I am thankful for this year...

T- Truth. I am thankful for the truth of God's word and the safety in knowing He is a God that never fails. I am thankful for the truth that He is a saving God and He loves me like crazy.
H- Husbands. Well...let me rephrase that...husband...singular, not plural. I am so thankful for my amazing, supportive, handsome, Godly hubby who loves me no matter how much I suck at cooking, how many times I turn his white clothes... blue, or even if I start crying for no particular reason, he still loves me.
A- A little beagle named Lillie Belle. I adore this puppy. She is little Miss Personality and she has totally stolen my heart.
N- New family. Christian and I are so blessed to have such wonderful families and we have both been overjoyed at the privilege of joining new families. I could not have handpicked a more perfect family to join!
K- Kids- I am so thankful for the precious nieces and nephew that I have in my life. They make my days sweeter and much more fun. They remind me that life is meant to be fun and simple. Not to mention that they are the cutest dang things you ever did see. Oh and I am also thankful the Lord has not given us any kids...yet. All in due time, but at this moment in our lives, we are thrilled to be kid-free!!!!!
S- Soda. I know...cheesy...but seriously, I love diet coke. I drink one everyday and I know it's bad for me, but I don't care. I love it.
G- God. Without Him, I would be nothing. Without Him, I would be in bondage and living a life with no meaning. Thank you Lord, for saving, delivering and loving me.
I- Image Advertising- What a blessing it has been for me to be able to pursue my dreams and have my own business. It is a dream come true. I love what I am doing and I am living in my "sweet spot" as Max Lucado would say. (If you have never read the book "The Cure for The Common Life", I would highly recommend it)
V- Very incredible family. I love my mom and dad more than words could ever express and even though I am married and out of the house, I still love coming home and just hanging out with them...and sometimes stealing their food.
I- Internet- What a blessing it has been to re-connect with friends and family through facebook and other media outlets. I never thought I would see the day where my maw maw was on Facebook. Yep...these are crazy times we are living in. Having the Internet has allowed me to earn a living as well as provided many fun, new, exciting blogging!!
N- Naps- Now come on...who doesn't love a good nap? Go on...raise your hand.
G- Girlfriends- When a girl has good girlfriends who truly understand each other...the world is a much better place. I have those girlfriends and now more than ever, I realize the value and importance of friends. Here's to my girls who accept me for my quirks and craziness and still call me friend!
