Motherhood

Thankful in 2011

I have so much to be thankful for this year. It’s amazing how much God has blessed me, and it’s amazing how things can change in your life so quickly. All of the changes in my life have been changes to celebrate. I am SO THANKFUL for so many things!

Those things include….

My husband. He is the love of my life. He understands me and supports me.

My little Baby O. I had no idea I would even become pregnant this year. It wasn’t even a thought. But now that she’s about to grace us with her presence, things couldn’t be more perfect. I am also thankful that this has been such an easy pregnancy!

Dexter. He is such an integral part of our family. He is the best kitty I’ve ever had. So much personality, so many shenanigans, so much smarts. What a cat that little fella is.



My immediate family. This year was a particularly rough year for my mother, as her divorce was finalized in August. I’m thankful that our relationship has gotten stronger.

My in-laws. I am so blessed that I was able to marry into a family that is so incredibly loving, accepting, and inviting. We are lucky, too, that a lot of them are in Texas now!

My BFFs. It’s amazing how if we don’t talk for a little while, we can just pick right back up where we left off.

Our home. We bought this house with such perfect timing. Everything fell into place. I have enjoyed living here and getting this place all ready to raise a family in.

What are you thankful for this year?
