Happy Thanksgiving y'all!

I hope you are all enjoying time with family and friends today. We are surrounded by family, turkey and dressing, and everything else yummy you can imagine. I couldn't let the day go by without giving thanks today for many things, however, this list is small in comparison to the wonderful blessings of life. Just know... we are always thankful!

{I'm thankful} I'm a child of the King. Salvation was the first gift I accepted from him and his blessings continue to flow day after day.

{I'm thankful} for the love of my husband. It may have taken many years to find each other, but it was His will for us to be together. Our love is one that is not weak, but one that grows stronger and stronger every day. I'm blessed to know that he is mine, and I am his. And in June... I get to see him hold our son or daughter. Oh, how I can't wait for that day!

{I'm thankful} for our sweet little baby growing inside of me. Words can't describe how excited, nervous, joyful, blessed I feel to know that this sweet baby is a gift from above. His timing for this gift is perfect, and we will thank Him always for this great joy. We pray everyday that He will mold us into the parents He wants us to be for this child. I'm sure we will fall short, but we promise to always look to Him for guidance. Our love for this baby is like non-other, and it grows stronger and stronger everyday.

{I'm thankful} for our families. They've provided for us before we were married, have and continue to love us, and only hope and pray for the best for us. They are excited about our little one, and will most definitely spoil he or she rotten.

{I'm thankful} for our amazing friends. Throughout life you find that you have real friends — friends that love you no matter what, stand by your side throughout life, and most importantly... trust and believe in you. Friendships that have those things are the ones you are thankful for!

{I'm thankful} for you, our blog readers. Every time there is a post... y'all show us love by commenting, and those comments are what keeps us blogging. The friendships I've acquired over the past few years of blogging have been a blessing to my heart. Y'all are encouraging, thoughtful and well, y'all just know how to make a girl smile. We've gotten some really great recipes from some of you, we've gotten craft ideas from some of you, and we've learned a lot from some fo you. Yes, dear fellow bloggers, we are thankful for you!

Enjoy Thanksgiving 2012 y'all!
