I am.

Thankful. I don't say it enough. I'm not the best at remembering to constantly thank those around me for all they do, such as SJ going to work. Maybe I don't show it too much, or mention it enough but, I am so thankful for all the many things I have in my life. Though I didn't stick with my thankful posts for all of November, I want to write my list of 30 now, because today my heart is full with thanks. 

  • I am thankful for my beautiful, healthy, happy daughter, Miss A, who changed my life the day she entered it.
  • I am thankful for my wonderful, understanding, hardworking husband, SJ.
  • I am thankful to have my family close.
  • I am thankful for my parents.
  • I am thankful for brothers. 
  • I am thankful for sisters.
  • I am thankful for my two sweet SIL's B & Edna.
  • I am thankful for nieces.
  • I am thankful for nephews.
  • I am thankful for my God-Daughter.
  • I am thankful for my little puppy, he was my baby when I was waiting for Miss A.
  • I am thankful for my beautiful home.
  • I am thankful for my religion.
  • I am thankful for the opportunity to be a SAHM.
  • I am thankful for the time I am able to spend with Miss A.
  • I am thankful for late night cuddles.
  • I am thankful for sweet baby kisses.
  • I am thankful for the friends I've made blogging.
  • I am thankful for an outlet, this blog. 
  • I am thankful for Miss E, who I will start to watch tomorrow, she is also helping me learn patience. 
  • I am thankful for music, especially now as holiday music fills my home.
  • I am thankful for answered prayers.
  • I am thankful for chocolate, it keeps me sane, and at a more than healthy weight. Ha!
  • I am thankful for caffeine.
  • I am thankful for my new dryer.
  • I am thankful for Netflix, it is background noise when A and I are home alone and not close to the radio.
  • I am thankful for warm clothes, especially with the winter coming up.
  • I am thankful for the willingness of my family to help whenever I need it.
  • I am thankful for my Scentsy warmer, it's making my house smell amazing right now!

Though my heart was heavy with gratitude, and not with hurt or frustration this time, I have linked up with Shell, to Pour My Heart Out. If you haven't linked up before, take a look.

The more we talk, and the more I read your blog, the more I realize how alike we are! I can't even get over it... No lie... we may have been separated at birth!

I just spent some more time browsing through your blog. You've got yourself a new follower. I can't find your contact information but having two preppy little girls...I am a bow junkie (and I can't make one to save my life)! Not only would I love to host a giveaway on my site but I would love to buy some for stucking stuffers. Hope to hear from you soon!!
