A Time to Give Thanks

As the holiday season is fast approaching, we have already begun to celebrate. Last night we had our first Thanksgiving of the season. We gathered at my Nana's house where the air filled me with memories of my childhood, and the laughter abounding reminded me of all that I was truly thankful for this year.

First and foremost I am thankful to be a child of God. His light has guided our way and He is truly faithful in His word.

I am also thankful this year to be surrounded by such wonderful family and friends. They may not be the most conventional bunch, but we are constantly surrounded by love and support.

I am thankful for a mother who has become my best friend. In all my life I have never given her the gratitude she truly deserves, but being a mom myself this year has given me a new outlook on just how wonderful the love of a mother truly is.

I am thankful for a husband who is my best friend and constant support. I am blessed with the ability to fall in love over and over again. He has also been a great husband, but this year I have watched as he has dove right in to being a loving daddy as well.

I am thankful for Miss A and Mr J. They continuously bring us joy and laughter. We are enjoying watching them develop and blossom right before our eyes.

I am so unbelievably thankful for this little man who has entered our lives this year. His first Thanksgiving will be filled with many kisses and hugs. He is the light of our lives, and each and every day I am truly reminded of how lucky a mommy I am.

As we continue to gather around the tables this holiday season, we will be filled with love and peace knowing that we do have so much to be thankful.

I hope that your season of thanks is as abundant as ours!
