I Am Thankful

I am thankful for a little girl who spontaneously throws her arms around me in the middle of cookie making to tell me she loves me.

I am thankful that I am the one who gets to cuddle and comfort my sensitive, teething baby when she is having a hard time with the pain.

I am thankful for extra large Tim Horton's mugs.

I am thankful for a hubby who comes home and plays with the kids while I cook supper. Also, I am thankful to get to listen in on all the excitement and cute conversations this inspires.

I am thankful for beautiful memories I can share with my children and that those memories still have the ability to bring tears to my eyes.

I am thankful for a sister-in-law who is so good at being a friend.

I am thankful that God opens our eyes and hearts to ways we can help and love others. And I am thankful that in doing this I am reminded of how generous and giving He is.

I am thankful for the story of Esther and how it reminds me that God is always in control.

I am thankful that God continually grants me joy and peace and a thankful heart despite so many things trying to strip that away from me.

I am thankful.
