A Grateful Heart
What am I thankful for...
Though my life's not exactly where I had it all planned out in my head(is it ever?), I still have SO much to be thankful for. Sometimes it's easy to be frustrated with a few of life's circumstances(which are temporary)and loose site of just how much we have to be grateful for. With that said, here are a few of the MANY things I am thankful for.
A daughter who makes me smile, constantly...I'm pretty sure there isn't anything she does that doesn't make my heart smile. A husband who can make me laugh, usually at myself and often times when I'm angry with him...I firmly believe that this is a gift. I'm thankful I was given permission to give Ruby the middle name Lemon... against Daniel's better judgement. I don't know why but it was REALLY important to me and it makes me happy every time I say it. I'm thankful for our dog Broccoli. For Ruby's room and that it turned out even better than I imagined, it's my little piece of perfect. For a mom who's patient with my grumblings, a dad who lovingly grumbles while putting his blood, sweat and tears into all my many projects and in-laws that are like a second set of parents. I'm thankful that God has a plan for my life and that even when I don't understand it, I know that His way is always for a reason and He gives me everything that that I need.
