I try to lead a life of gratitude, giving thanks often. However, with Thanksgiving knocking at the door, it always helps me focus inward and appreciate all of the blessings in my life. The air is filled with everyone’s warm thoughts, and you can sense it. Those warm feelings of thankfulness encourage me to share with you what I’m most and forever thankful for in my life.

My faith

I believe with God, all things are possible. My faith in this alone has allowed me to conquer many battles in my life. I am thankful for my faith, and am always surprised at how I am anchored in good times and in bad times.

My family

Usually your family knows you the best. I’m so thankful that I have the family I do. They haven’t run away yet, and I trust that it is because they actually tolerate me or may even like me the littlest bit. My husband is my best friend, I couldn’t do too much without him! My 3 girls are such a blessing to me as well. They keep me very busy, but it is worth every second. I am always excited to get to hang out with my family, and makes me so happy. I’m forever thankful for all of them.

My friends

I have some fabulous friends. You know who your friends are when you hit your bottom, and they are there to help you up. My friends have made me smile when there is absolutely nothing to smile about. I am thankful that I get to live life with some amazing people.

Faith, Family, and Friends. Forever Thankful.

What are you most thankful for?
