Thankful Thursday

As I was sitting here with my grandson this morning, listening to his endless chatter, I became completely overwhelmed with gratefulness once again. I was reminded of what a blessed woman I am to have these amazing children be a part of my day to day life.

Just some of the things I am thankful that I am able to experience with them around:

  • lots of snuggles
  • endless chatter
  • amazing company
  • loud squeals of laughter when they are chasing each other around the yard (or through the house)
  • wrestling matches
  • fun teaching moments (6 year old Devin - referring to sandwiches: "Two halves + one whole = 'a double whole'.")
  • lots of snuggles
  • lots and lots of artwork (Even the artwork on the coffee table done with a black sharpie pen reminds me of how blessed I am to have them around.)
  • the new things I learn every day (This week I learned that hand sanitizer will take a silver sharpie mural off of the lamp ;), but it won’t take black sharpie off of the coffee table.)
  • did I mention all the snuggles and love I am blessed with????

So anyway, as I was sitting there basking in the blessedness (is that even a word?) of my life and feeling so incredibly thankful for so many things, I realized it is only ONE WEEK until Thanksgiving!!!! Seriously, where has this year gone?!?

As we celebrate this season of giving thanks, what are you finding yourself thankful for?

I do the same thing only with Greg. I watch him sleep, or study, or even watch tv, and I think how absolutely blessed I am to have him in my life and especially in my home! I am so thankful for him!

Brianna ~ I was just thinking this morning how thankful I am that Greg is home with you, safe and sound. And I am incredibly grateful for him and all the others who fight for our safety and freedom!
