Happy Thanksgiving! What a better day to express what your thankful for. I try to focus on the blessings in my life on more than one day a year of course. Trying hard to also teach my girls to be thankful for all that they have. As American children they have so much while children across the world suffer. I would adopt the world if I could and give to many. But, as that is not possible we can only pray that they have love and that all their needs are met. I am so blessed.

A short list of what I am thankful for this year.
I am thankful to know Jesus as my personal Saviour.
I am thankful to be an American and have religious freedom.
I am thankful for my amazing husband who is loving and supportive despite my many faults.
I am thankful for my daughters who are blossoming into wonderful young ladies.
I am thankful for my home, van, and food in my pantry.
I am thankful for iced coffee, dark chocolate and sweet tea.
I am thankful I have the option and resources to homeschool my daughters.
I am thankful my husband has a job he loves and is willing to commute to provide for us.
I am thankful for my amazing friends online and offline.
I am thankful that my husband supports my many crafting and home improvement ventures.
So much more I am sure but these are the ones at the forefront of my mind.
