First and foremost I am thankful that I am forgiven. God knows that I am far from perfect, no matter how hard I try. I am thankful that I serve a loving God who is quick to forgive.

I am thankful for my beautiful, wonderful family. Chris...there are no words. He is more than I could ever dream for in a husband. There is no one else that I would rather spend my life with. Thank you for choosing me, Chris. Our amazing baby boy, Eli. We made a wish...and you came true. These last 10 months as a mom have deepened the depth and breadth of my ability to love more than I have ever know. What an amazing journey. My parents; thank you for your support through every decision that I have made. Thank you for your love for your grandson. Eli is so blessed to have so many people that love him. My cousins, aunts, uncles and grandparents; I learn so much from each one of you. I draw from your strength and your trials. Thank you for your support and love. My in-laws- thank you for your son! Thank you for making him the man he is today. Thank you also for your love for your grandson and welcoming me into your family.

I am thankful for my health and the health of my family and friends. I am thankful that I am able to have the opportunity to be a stay-at-home mom. I am thankful for my freedom to live the way I choose and worship my God without fear of punishment. I am thankful that I have never known true hunger or poverty.

Today I choose an attitude of gratitude because I truly have so much to be thankful for.
