Happy Thanksgiving!

With Thanksgiving just a couple of days away I thought I might take the time to share what I'm thankful for.

Hmmm... Thinking...thinking...I'm t h i n k i n g . Okay, there are just too many things to list so maybe I'll just name a few of the things I'm thankful for.

My husband.  You're a fiery, passionate man (whew!) and a wonderful daddy to all our sweet babies. You aredee best...even your imperfection is stupendous!  What's his imperfection you ask?  He sees me through rose colored glasses.  (sigh) I love him!

My children.  I have five of you precious little packages that look just like me and your daddy and even though you also act like us sometimes I still can't get enough of you.  You all make me want MORE of you!!!

My family.  I have the most wonderful parents that always give me an arm to lean on and two sweet sisters who gladly lend me their ears to blather on and on in.  I love you guys.  I even love all you Okie outlaws...we don't get to see each other enough, I know.  And a special thanks to yuns for my hubby!  Ya done good.

My dogs, Sadie and Chili.  Sadie you're my children's protective companion and I think you love Jeff as much as I do.  And Chili, well you're really gassy and you always lick my ankle just after I've taken a shower so I'll have to get back to you on that one.

Chocolate.  Oh chocolate.  What can I say?  You've always been there for me through thick and thin, through good times and bad times.  And now, because of you, I can no longer wear a size 6 and I have high blood pressure, but I will always love you...till the day I have a stroke and die because of you.

My followers.  All nine of you.  You know who you are.  You're the reason I'm here.  The reason I get out of bed every morning before my children do and run to the computer at the butt crack of dawn.  Ooops.  Did I say butt out loud?  Anyway, thanks for being my friends, I need all of them I can get.

God.  My God.  You're my father in heaven, the lover of my soul.  You redeemed me with the blood of your son, my precious Savior.  You painfully chisel away at me like your creating a diamond all the while drowning me in comfort and hope.  Without YOU, I'm just a worthless, empty vessel.

I could go on all day listing what I'm thankful for.  Those were just the icing on the cake.  I hope you all take time to count your blessings and give thanks to God too.

Oh, and Chili, I do love you...in some special way.  A way I just can't quite put my finger on.



  1. Happy Thanksgiving! The house is looking fabulous! I, like you, have so much to be thankful for, and without God, none of it would be possible! Enjoy your week of Thanksgiving!

  2. What a sweetheart you are! Happy Thanksgiving... I can't wait to dive in and hear all about this cottage!
