I have been a complete slacker when it comes to posting new blogs. I admit that I have been rather lazy about it and am going to work on doing a better job at writing in my "journal".

Seeing as how this month is almost half way through, and that it is the month of giving thanks, I thought I would follow in the foot steps of some of my friends. I am going to give thanks for something everyday. It doesn't matter how big or small. Since I am 11 days short I will get caught up with 11 things today...

1. I am thankful for my sweet little boy Gideon who makes me laugh with the things he says. Example: Gabbie was upset, and once she left for school Gideon turns to me and says, "What is wrong with that child?" Gotta love a 3 year old.

2. I am thankful for my home.

3. I am thankful for a sweet husband that takes care of me when I am hurt.

4. I am thankful for the Internet and the distraction that is can give to crazy kids.

5. I am thankful for prayer and fasting. They do work.

6. I am thankful for 4 beautiful children. They may drive me bonkers at times but I wouldn't trade them for anything in the world.

7. I am thankful that families are eternal. I miss my Mom.

8. I am thankful that I have a job, even though I don't like having to work outside my home.

9. I am thankful for a husband that provides not only financially, but also emotionally.

10. I am thankful for good friends. You know who you are.

11. Today, I am thankful for the men and women that sacrifice all they have to keep me safe. Without them where would we be?

There you have it. The beginning of my Thankful November. Now I just need to remember to keep it up.
