This won't be as pretty as some of the other blog posts with all of the pictures... but, I wanted to list some things I am thankful for this Thanksgiving.
I am thankful for Nathan and Autumn. They have added so much love, laughter and little adventures to my life that I cannot imagine it without either of them.
My Dad, and for his good health and for Mom, because she takes care of my kids every day that I am at work, I know it is a lot on her but she does it and gives the kids so much love
My brother and his wife Tracy for always having us over for good times (and for hosting Thanksgiving this year).
My friends, some I have known for many, many years and others for just a few years.
A job that I have been at for the last eight years, that has been stable and pays my bills
My cat, even though she's got the loudest meow in the early mornings hours and Nathan's frogs even though they eat crickets.
That I was able to run my second 10K earlier this fall, and that I am healthy enough to start training for a 1/2 marathon in January.
My house, even though it will never be perfectly clean since I have two young children
Nathan's school, for raising him up in the Lord's light and for such wonderful teachers. Also, thankful for our church, and for being able to attend it more regularly since the kids sit better through services now.
Thankful that a hard part of my life will be over either at the end of next month, or by February at the latest. Thankful that I have hung in there and will be a better and happier person once it is over.
