Capturing the Best in Ourselves

Happy Thanksgiving

On this day of thanks, my children are currently napping (well, most of them), my husband is napping, my mother-in-law is busy cleaning up after lunch, other in-laws are resting, crocheting, and playing the guitar, and I am left in the quiet to reflect on why I am thankful.  So, here it goes... I am thankful for...

my God who loves me as I am, my husband who supports me 100%, my children who make me laugh, Marble Slab ice cream (banana with chocolate chips to be specific), Christmas music, "The Office", my friends who tolerate my craziness, my parents who always taught me that I could be whatever I wanted to be, Mentoring Moms, a career that allows me to be a Mom first, clear organizing boxes, my new Canon 70-200 lens, Laura Story, our country where we can be free, Behold the Lamb of God CD, Furman, my health, The Hicks, Australia (because my sister found comfort there), cool digital paper to use for Christmas cards, being the most tired I have been in all of my life because of the number of Christmas orders I have (I am so excited!!!), pumpkin bread, Earle Street Baptist Church, my MacPro laptop.

Well, that isn't a very long list, but I have to get back to those Christmas orders.  I hope each of you are enjoying spending time with family and filling your tummies with yummy food.  I know it isn't the end of the year yet, but I can't wait to see what 2009 brings.  2008 was pretty cool!
