i am so thankful....

thanking God for some of the things in my life that may seem small but make life feel really BIG!

i am so thankful ....
1. that my kids say "i love you" to me every night before they go to bed.
2. for feet that touch mine in the middle of the night.
3. for sweet smiles that come from a crib in the corner of my bedroom each morning.
4. that i heard Christian music come from my daughter's bedroom radio today.
5. to be able to learn new Truths with my church family at Bible study.
6. for big strong hugs from my 16 year old son.
7. for catching my husband looking at me from across the room.
8. that i have the opportunity to travel to be with my family for Thanksgiving.
9. to be able to enjoy snuggling with my youngest daughter before bed.
10. for a great cup of coffee each morning.

What a beautiful list!
I, too love the strong hugs I get from my big guys and have very fond memories of my little ones playing in their cribs nearby. I always wanted them close to me. I suppose that is why we have such a strong bond.
Hope you have a wonderfully blessed Thanksgiving.

There's nothing quite like spending time with family. It looks like you had great weather and a wonderful time! Your list is wonderful. Those are the sorts of memories that you will remember many years from now--very similar to my own list. God has been so good to you!
