Thankful, thankful, thankful...

I am so thankful for

a husband who seeks to honor God in every area of his life,
for ten legs vying for space under the down comforter early in the morning,
for a big kitchen for friends to gather in,
God's provision for our family in spite of a faulty economy,
for healthy babies and healthy kidneys,
for my husband's affections,
for warm chocolate chip cookies and a glass of farm milk
for God's peace,
I am thankful for stories with the kiddos,
for their out of nowhere questions,
hearing the kids hoping for another sibling and loving their world view,
for a daughter who is silly, crafty, creative and beautiful
for a son who can fashion a sword or bow and arrow out of just about anything and his sweet squeaky voice,
for a son who is wild at heart, the hardest worker I know, who gives the best kisses
for a daughter who talks beyond her years and is hilarious nearly every moment of the day
for a son who pops his thumb in, cuddles up and says "Maaa!" when sleepy and hungry
for a full table at Thanksgiving
I am thankful for God's grace,
for my sisters,
for cornbread stuffing,
fresh chicken eggs,
a cup of Earl Grey and an open Bible by the woodstove early in the morning
for the honor of giving.

Each time I sit down to add to/ compose my list, I am overwhelmed. I have more to be thankful for than I can comprehend. God is good.

Thank you for sharing your list.

Your list isn't just a list. It's a poem.

I am thankful for everything, good, bad, high, low, right side up and upside down. My cup, our cup, runneth over.

Thank you for your blog: born in the Finger Lakes and now a Kentuckian, it is good to read of a place and a family near home. Bless you all.

My blog:

Very best,

Natalie in Kentucky
