Thankful For #6 through Infininity

30 Nov

Okay… I did not post daily like I planned with my “Thankful For’s”. Partly because I was way too excited for Thanksgiving and got caught up with cooking and baking. And partly because I would sit down to post and have so much but nothing at the same time… if that makes any sense. So, I am just going to give a list of things that come to my mind at this very moment that I am thankful for. This is in NO WAY everything that I am thankful for…. I could never begin to be done being thankful… But here goes….

#6: I am thankful that I had children young.

#7: I am thankful for great parents and siblings.

#8: I am thankful for struggles… Now, I am not thankful for these while I am in the middle of them, but having gone through plenty of struggles… afterwards, the knowledge I gain from these struggles, makes me thankful.

#9: I am thankful for my health and my families health.

#10: I am thankful for great friends… although I myself, am not the best friend a person can have… I still am very thankful for those friends that endure me! 🙂

10 Thankful For’s seems like a good place to end… still NOWHERE close to everything that I am thankful for!!


Thankful For #1

18 Nov

Thanksgiving is just one week away and to celebrate this wonderful holiday I am going to be giving thanks for the next week. I will blog a new “Thankful For” post each day until Thanksgiving. This, and every season, is the season to give Thanks so lets all begin now! And feel free to comment on my posts to let me know what you are thankful for as well!

Thankful for #1


I am Thankful for being saved and being a child of God.

If it was not for God I would not be able to do what I do, be where I am, or think what I think. Because of My Father sending his only Son to die on the cross for my sins, I am able to be who I am today! None of us are worthy of what we have been blessed with. I thank God daily for my wonderful family, great freinds, a place to live and so on and so forth. I could never thank God enough for all of his glory and provisions!

I Love…

I was thinking about a few funny, quirkey things that I love doing… or explain why I am me… and figured I would create a post about them…. so if you wanted to know a little bit more about me, here goes—

I love delving deeper into my faith, but just wish I could speak it to people the way I have it in my head!

I love being a wife, but hate getting in spats!

I love being a mom, but hate having to discipline them!

I love baking, but have all these dreams and no money to do anything about them!

I love being an adult, but hate having to be responsible and pay bills!

I love to imagine having more kids, but the two I have can be tough at times!

I love looking back on memories from my past, but wish I still had those people I enjoyed making those memories with still around me now!

I love to drive fast, but I hate to drive in general!

I love talking to people that are passionate about the same things I am, but that’s sometimes hard to find!

I love eating out and trying new things, but also enjoy cooking most meals at home!

I love creating new recipes, but feel like it was a waste of time and money if they turn out bad!

I love my friends, but realize that I am not the very best friend a person can have!

I love being creative, but often my projects turn out way better in my mind!

I love being called “mommy”, but am already dreading the day they “leave the nest”!

I love being a stay at home mom, but realize now that even they need time for themselves!

I love saving money, but hate buying something and then realizing afterwards that I could have saved even more on it elsewhere!

I love having a place to call home, but hate when bathroom cleaning day comes around!

I love being organized, but hate that that usually never happens around my house!

I love having date nights with my hubby, but really hate leaving my kiddos behind!

I love imagining a great blog post in my head, but hate when it comes out not-so-good after it is written!

4th of July… On the 5th

5 Jul

Today we had our 4th of July celebration. We had lots of great food and great people over. I am so blessed to have such great friends! I love having a house full of people and hearing adults laughing and children playing. Even after having a completely dirty… or should I say WET house, it makes it all the more fun! I love planning and getting together with people. And seeing everyone help out (because ya know, sometimes I just CANNOT have the food AND the decorations all out on time!) by putting stuff together and cleaning up makes me even more greatful that God has allowed my family and I to cross paths with such wonderful friends.

Today made me think… I Dont have to worry about how clean my house is or how perfect everything needs to stay, as long as my family and friends are having fun, throw water balloons inside my house (or perhaps JUST outside the door)… I can clean it later!
