Thankful

I am so thankful for...

children that love, that listen, that enjoy each other

a husband that encourages, that is compassionate, that makes me feel wonderful everyday

a fire in the fireplace when it's so very cold outside

books and more books to read to the munchkins, myself, and all together

a Lord that is merciful and faithful, always providing no matter the circumstances

a mama and a sister that remain my best friends despite distance between us

a daughter who writes and sings the most beautiful worship songs

children with imaginations

children who pray with all their hearts for the things on their minds..." Grandma and grandpa, Aunt Hanna, Uncle Davey, everybody in the world, a good day, Jack and Caleb, Jesse and Shannon, everybody in the world again..."

the ability to teach my children and see their excitement when they learn new things...and how they love to tell daddy all that they learned

babies who make you smile constantly

boys who love each other and talk about the restaurant they are going to have together when they're adults

a family that plays together

a family that enjoys being with each other

a nice, big kitchen to cook delicious food and bake yummy treats in

the pumpkin cake I just made :)

coffee

snuggling

God's Word... I CAN know Him, not just wonder about Him

seeing my children smile

I am thankful that I read how happy you all are. Happy Thanksgiving, although every day we should be thankful for what we have.

LOVE your list Amy. Thanks for sharing! I hope you had a great holiday.
I am missing my sister, and I am glad Mom is here close, but my heart is heavy for her to be far from us. :( God is good to give us great sisters...
and AMEN to babies who make you smile constantly... and older children you can be so proud of...
