As I sit here thinking about my life, there are so many things that I thank the Lord for. The biggest thing I am thankful for tonight though are the four people that I spend the most of my time with, my little family. As corny as it may seem, I want to share some of the reasons that I am thankful for each one of them. It helps me to not take them fore granted, remembering how they bless my life each day……
Adam- I am thankful for my husband in so many ways. Even though our marriage isn’t perfect, I am thankful that he is a committed and loving husband. I am thankful for how he provides for our family, so I am able to stay at home. And for how he treats me, with respect and love. Thankful for how he can be so silly with our kids, and never hesitates to tell them he loves them. And for how the Lord is using him to change lives, I always knew he would do great things. Finally, how we can laugh together, support one another, and almost finish each other’s sentences at times. There is no one else I would want to grow old with.
Hudson- I am so thankful for my first born. Thankful for how happy, sensitive, and a caring boy he is turning out to be. I am thankful God gave me a boy for my first one, and how precious he is. Thankful for the time I get with him now, but sad at how fast it is going by. And how outgoing he is, just like his dad. Thankful for the time I get to sit and listen to him tell me about things he is thinking about, and what he is interested in now. I am so thankful I am his mom, and for the big brother he is to his siblings as well.
Wilson- I am thankful for this little boy who fits into our family so well. Thankful for his stubborn will, and for how curious he is. Thankful that the Lord has blessed me with the chance to be his mommy. And even though I screw up at times, he still trusts that I will take care of him. I am thankful for the diversity he brings to our family, but even though not my biological child, the different similarities that we share. So thankful to look at where he has come from, to where he is now. He is a little fighter, and I look forward to seeing him thrive in his life.
Grayson- I am thankful for this little surprise who is my daughter. Thankful for another female to share this house with, so I am not totally outnumbered. 🙂 I am thankful for her spunky little personality, and that she can be so girly, but at the same time try and keep up with her brothers. Thankful that she wants me to sit on her bed before she goes to sleep, and that she still wants to cuddle with her mom. I am thankful for the woman that she will grow into, and that I get the privilege of showing her how much her worth is in the eyes of the Lord.
I could definitely think of more things to be thankful for with each one, but it might take too long to type it all out. :). Who are you thankful for in your life, and what are some of the things that make you appreciate them?
