Month of Thanks: Week One

Thursday, November 1: Today I am thankful for my amazing baby boy.  He is such a wonderful joy to have and has made Tyler and I's life richly blessed. 

Friday, November 2:  I am thankful for my husband. He is always by my side and is such a great father to Everett. I can't imagine spending my life with anyone else.

Saturday, November 3: I am thankful for the gift of eternal life and salvation through Christ.  Every day is a blessing and a gift from God and some days I forget how lucky I am to have a savior in Christ. 

Sunday, November 4: Today was Orphan Sunday at our church we were reminded about the call for Christians to take care of the widows and the orphans (see James 1:27).  This reminded me about how thankful I am for my grandparents who adopted my mom.  They took in not only one child but two children who needed homes.  My grandmother and poppa are great grandparents to me and my siblings and also to Everett.  I am so thankful to have them in my life. 

Monday, November 5: I am thankful for my mom.  She has always been there for me, guiding me, and helping me through life.  She is one of my best friends and I am so lucky to have her.  I am so thankful that she is able to be in Everett's life. 

Tuesday, November 6:  I am reminded today of the great sacrifice that so many women made years ago in order to give me the right to vote.  Women DIED fighting for equality and for that I will never miss an election.  I am so thankful that we live in a country where we are given a voice and a choice in who runs our country.  (Also, if you have not seen the movie Iron Jawed Angels, you NEED to watch it.  It will help you understand the struggles that these women went through and how hard they worked.)

Wednesday, November 7I am thankful for my dad and his adventurous spirit, loving heart, and gracious spirit. My dad is such a giving person and has taught me how do the same. He taught me how to take pride not only in my things but also in the life I lead.
