When I stop to think about just how much I really do have to be thankful for today it overwhelms me. God has blessed me so richly that it’s hard to believe the life that I’m living is mine. On top of sending his Son to die for me so that I can have salvation (John 3:16) He heaps blessings on me daily!
All of my life I wanted to marry young, have babies, and stay at home to take care of them. Now I have two beautiful, healthy, happy children and a loving, handsome husband that is my very best friend and who I have so much fun with.
I’m blessed and so lucky to have not one, but four best friends that can really be called that. I mentioned my hubby, then there is of course my mom–who I call daily and is just so very loving and understanding and supportive. Then I have my long time (I don’t want to think about how long now–it means we’re getting old!!) best friend Heather. Though we have developed differences of opinions and tastes as we’ve become adults I consider her my sister and love her so much! Then there’s Lara–my best friend who is so much like me it’s a little scary sometimes. She’s the one who understands what it’s like to be a military spouse, to handle potty training issues on top of no sleep, to be a Western girl through and through but have to live else where. (not to mention she’s my fellow Jane Austen junkie )
I have a beautiful apartment in beautiful Boston. I have a job that I absolutely love and I get goodies in the mail just to run my mouth about them by blogging–a blog that people (other than the above 4) actually read!
Yes…when I stop to think about all that and so much more that I have I am filled with thankfulness. I’m blessed more than I can imagine and try to keep that always in mind.
Hope you had a wonderful, beautiful day with family and that you reflected on what blesses your life!
