We have days that are hard. Where Jax drives me up the wall, where Lexi won't let me put her down, and where Ryan gets home so late from work that we eat dinner and do bedtime alone. But even in those days, I am still so thankful for the life God has given me.
For a husband who works hard for our family and rarely complains
For a son who is the sweetest, funniest, best big brother
For a daughter who was born via successful VBAC, and who sleeps well, is usually content, and has the cutest smile
For parents who let us stay with them for the holidays, even when their house is in the middle of a major remodel
For in-laws who love me like their own and are always there for us when we need them
For old friends, whose friendship can withstand difficult circumstances and whose strength carries each other through hard times
For new friends in our new town who we can have play dates, and game nights, and adventures with
For a rental house the fits our needs and the ability to start looking to buy a new house that we can call our own
For two cars that fit our family and can take us anywhere we want to go
And for love. Between family. Between friends. And especially the love the God has shown me over this past year.
Happy Thanksgiving, dear friends!
