Happy Thanksgiving!

Last year it was all about Janie Beth. It was her Thanksgiving, as it would probably be the only one she would attend. I have never called holidays the kids first when I am still pregnant with them, but Janie Beth was different. There would be no first after she was born except the first one she wasn't here for. I am so thankful for that precious day with her, but I wish I had a picture. I remember sitting at the table last year feeling completely alone while everyone else talked and laughed.

This year will be smaller, and I have so much to be thankful for!

I am thankful for my heavenly Father; His Son that gave His life for me; and His Spirit that He left with me until He returns!!!

I am thankful for an awesome husband who is my best friend!

I am thankful for each and every one of my kiddos, all 5 of them! They have each changed me in different ways.

I am thankful for my extended family. God knows the family you need to be a part of.

I am thankful for the friends that God has blessed me with! I just have to say they are awesome and the best. :)

I am thankful for my babyloss friends that I have only met online, even if the circumstances are hard! They let me know I am not alone and my feelings are normal.

I am thankful for having my basic needs being met.

I am thankful for the blessings each day.

I am thankful for a loving church family.

I am thankful for all that I went through the last 28 years because it has all made me who I am today and has brought me where I am today.

I am thankful that God is working all things together for my family's good and His glory!

I am thankful that I get to stay home with my kids and homeschool them!

I am thankful for hugs and kisses every day.

I am thankful for the grace and mercy that God pours out on me each and every day.

I am thankful that God carries me through each day, especially the hard ones.

I am thankful that God writes my faith; therefore, I can have it even when I do not feel it. It is a choice.

I am thankful for all that God has taught me and for all that He is going to teach me.

It all boils down to being thankful for all that God has done; all that He is doing; and all that He is going to do!

For all that You've done, I will thank You

For all that You're going to do
For all that You've promised and all that You are
Is all that has carried me through
Jesus, I thank You

and I thank You
thank You Lord
and I thank You
thank You Lord

Thank You for loving and setting me free
Thank You for giving Your life just for me
How I thank You
Jesus, I thank You
I gratefully thank You
And I thank You
