I've loved reading Andrea and Kelly's thankful posts, so because I'm a follower I've decided to join them with my thankfulness for the month of November. I'm a big fan of November. It brings in the crisp air, an extra hour of sleep, Thanksgiving and most importantly MY birthday! There are a lot of things to be thankful for.

Being thankful should come easier than it does, our world doesn't really promote it very well. It's not like we turn on the news and the reporters are talking about all the good things that happened today, sadly it's the opposite. It's litered with war, death, missing people, bad weather, economic strife, Kim Kardashian's divorce (who was shocked by this?!)...drama, drama, drama. So, at least for a month on my blog I will promise to be thankful!

I'm thankful for our home.
It's not too big, not too small it's just right for our little family!

I'm thankful for a brother-in-law coming home soon.
He has bravely been serving our country in Iraq. I'm so proud of him and can't wait for him to come home!

I'm thankful for extra laundry.
Yup, you read right. If I didn't have a sweet little girl I wouldn't have the extra laundry. I love folding those little socks!

I'm thankful for a hard-working husband.
Greg works so hard, so hard I don't see him very often but I know he is doing it for our family. He is a pretty great husband and dad :)

Whew, that felt good!  What are you thankful for?


  1. Yea! It does a heart good to focus on thanksgiving doesn't it?

  2. I'm thankful for the snuggle time I got with Ash this morning.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog, I loved scrolling through your posts this morning and looking at your sweet baby. She's a doll!
    Enjoy your Weekend!
