There are so many things I'm thankful for with the most important being family. I have a big one! Growing up in a family of 7, there was little time in my world for peace and quiet. Although I crave it sometimes... I really wouldn't have it any other way. With 4 kids, our home is always loud and lively. When we all get together for the holidays, it's even bigger and better. My Mom does a great job hosting. There's anywhere from 30 to 40 people at our gatherings. I'm very thankful to have so many loved ones in my life... family and friends and I love that our kids have a boat load of fun loving cousins. When I say I'm thankful... I'm thankful to God for making it all possible. God puts joy in my heart! Making a habit of thanking God through prayer helps me realize just how many blessings I have in my life. This Thanksgiving and all year long I will continue to be grateful for family, friends, health, safety, freedom, food, shelter, laughter and my loving and forgiving God!
