I am thankful that we have enough money to make a large meal. I am thankful we have such a beautiful family. I am thankful we have a place to gather.
I am thankful that I have talented parents that taught me to cook. I am thankful that they took the time to teach me all that they did.

A month of thanks - Day 27

I am thankful for my two sweet nephews. I love them both dearly and I love being an aunt. One of them is close to me and I adore spending time with little Jonathan, he is such a sweet baby. The other is far and while I don't see Jack as often as I would like, I still love him and have enjoyed watching him grow up. It is hard to believe that Jack was so premature when you see him now.

A month of thanks - day 26

I am thankful for home schooling. I am thankful I get to spend the week doing school different then we normally do. Instead of work books and reading lessons our week is thanksgiving themed. The kids are loving it. I am thankful I am able to be flexible with their education and do things the way we feel is right, not the way a textbook deems correct.

A month of thanks - day 22

I am thankful for family outings. Meal times are better with good conversation and living windows was much better having the family with. Alex and Destiny are always thrilled when Grandma and Grandpa come with us somewhere.
On that note, I am thankful that my kids have loving Grandparents on both sides. We are a lucky family.

I am thankful for coffee. I know this sounds silly but there is something wonderful about going out and spending time with a friend or family member over a cup of coffee. I love going to the local coffee shop. After a stressful day it always relaxes me.

A month of thanks - day 18

With today being veterans day I think it is important to write about how thankful I am for all those who serve. I am thankful that they defend our country and our rights. I am thankful for not only them but for those who support and love them.
Chris and I know a lot of veterans and I want to tell you all how much respect and love I hold for each and every one of you.

A month of thanks - Day 17

I am thankful for my Grandma. She is an amazing women who I love with all my heart. My Grandma Gail made my childhood fun, she loved to tease and play. I still have a stuffed duck when gave me when I was a little girl. One afternoon I decided to leave the yard to play with the neighbors dog, my mother was frantic, called the police and everyone else before she could find me. Well a few days later my Grandma brought me a stuffed duck named Oscar, she told me she found him driving his car along the side of the road and asked me to take car of him, I was to make sure he never wandered off again. I still have Oscar and I love that stuffed duck.

I am thankful for the home school group we attend. It gives the kids a place to learn and play, I know they are safe and are with people I can trust. It gives them a good place to meet friends and socialize. All the women there are very nice and over all it is a great group.

A month of thanks - day 11

I am thankful for my education. My parents saw that the public school system was not working for me, took me out, home schooled me and I was able to graduate two years early. I had a lot more control over my classes, took classes I never could have in the public school and got a great education.
I am now home schooling my own kids and hoping to pass on the great education I received to them. I want them to love learning the way I did.

A month of thanks - day 10

I am thankful for weekends. It was nice to spend a day with family. My mom watched my kids while Chris and I went and had lunch alone for the first time in way to long, then we spend the day with family and ended the day with watching a movie together. It is nice to have a day not interrupted by work schedules to just spend together.

I am thankful for my family. I have already wrote about my husband and my kids but I am now talking about everyone else.
My parents and my in laws are both great. They are wonderful grandparents, help Chris and I out a lot and just over all I am really thankful for them. My mom is like my best friend and my dad is an amazing father.
My sister and my brother are both very important to me along with all the in laws.
Chris and I have a large extended family and although both sides can be slightly dysfunctional we would not have it any other way. I love our families.

It is Time to Love Our Fellow Man
