A grateful heart is a happy heart.

Last year at Thanksgiving I remember how much I wanted to make this year a more grateful year. One that I was going to thank God for something every day. It is so easy sometimes to fall into the habit of looking for how what we are missing in our lives versus how much we have already been given. I can't say I remembered to do this every day but it has certainly helped me to develop a more grateful and happy heart.

I am especially thankful for ....
...a husband who is so involved in his children's lives. He never is short on love for us, and he makes our little world such a better place:)
...a big blue eyed boy with an imagination bigger than I will ever have, and who makes each day an adventure for me. He brings me more laughter than I deserve.
...for this soft and squishy sweetheart whose smiles seem to make our world go round.
They make me cherish the days of my life.
So grateful to God for them.

Wishing you a wonderful, happy, and healthy Thanksgiving. Many Blessings!
