Thankful for...

I've been slow in posting an update because our computer has died. Hopefully it gets fixed soon! But any how, here's my whole month of being thankful, in a nutshell :)

Family- I'm so thankful for my husband, son, and little bun in the oven. My husband has transformed into a great daddy for Carson and our newest blessing. It's not always been easy, but we make it work! I can't imagine my life without any one if them. I love beig a wife and a mommy.

Work- I'm thankful for having a job I can go to during the week, that gives me nights, weekends, and holidays off, and enables me to help my community.

Our home- it may be small and we may be outgrowing it, but it's ours. We have a roof over our heads, running water, and warmth from the cold November winds.

Today I'm thankful for: Internet

I know that this may seem a bit materialistic, I assure you, its not (well at least not completely!).  The internet enables me to see my only nephew who lives 4+ hours away, on a regular basis. It enables me to stay in touch with friends that are now far away, and other family that's not close by. Yes, it is a distraction at times. Yes, it can consume hours of our lives each day or week. But its more than that. It's a connection to friends, family, news, banking, and so much more!  It's a creative outlet for feelings. It's fuel for the artistic side (although pinterest is addicting!) I have made some good blogger friends via the internet too. 

So today, yes, I am thankful for the internet.

Today I am thankful for: Family

I've mentioned before just how great my family is for me. I seriously don't know where I would be today without the love and support of my fmaily. I have awesome parents who are always there to help, a brother and sister in law who gave me an awesome nephew, grandparents who are still here and very much helpful at times, a mother in law who can cook like no tomorrow, and a husband and son who love me unconditionally. They are the driving force to keep me going in life.
