Giving Thanks for Family

This week I am going along with our Thanksgiving book, The Thanks Giving Tree: Seeing Blessings Everywhere, and taking a moment to share things that I personally am thankful for.

  1. I thankful to be adopted into a heavenly family.
  2. My grandparents for caring for my parents, and for loving me in the completely special and unconditional way grandparents do, and for teaching me many things.
  3. My wonderful, loving, and devoted parents, who have cared for and taught me so much throughout my life.
  4. My brother who was the best of friends and irritants (and vice-versa hold true as well I am sure) growing up and who can still always make me laugh.
  5. My amazing husband who;
    • Has a servants heart
    • Is a strong, Valiant man of vision
    • Is especially handsome
    • Loves me, my imperfectness and all
    • Always thanks me for cooking, and says the food is the best in the world, even when I wish I could serve him something better
    • Always knows when I need a break or chocolate or both
  6. My husband's family for whole-hardheartedly welcoming and adopting me into their great and fun family.
  7. My firstborn son Aaron, for making me a mom, for challenging me to grow and learn all of the time.
  8. My second son Andrew, for saying the funniest things and making me smile, and having really deep thoughts arise at the most unexpected moments.
  9. My third son Alexander, right now the baby, with all of the baby smiles and cuteness, and trying so hard to catch up to his big brothers.
  10. Our special friends far and near who treat us like family.
Also, I don't feel thankful being far from our extended families, but it has made me appreciate them more, make sure to take the time to connect despite the distance, and for other friends and people we have met, because of living far away from our biological families.
