What are YOU thankful for?

I read a friend (Nicoles) blog and she challenged us to write what we are thankful for and pass it on. We always do this at my parents house each year at Thanksgiving......we all write down one thing and then the kids get to read them.....I will write more than one today....

I am thankful for my beautiful family-who is ALWAYS there for me thru good times and bad--Who will do ANYTHING and EVERYTHING for me. Who knows ALL about me and still loves me!! I am thankful that we are sooooo very lucky to have all our parents (4) and they are well...and are always there when we need them. I am thankful for a husband and son who love me---I am thankful that I can talk to Jesus anytime-- anywhere. I am thankful that I had the best grandmother ever in the whole wide world and whom I miss dearly! {Greaty I LOVE YOU and Wish you were still here-- Carter and you would be buddies I know it--- It has been a long 10 years without you}...... I am thankful for peace and quiet---I am thankful for a brother who ALWAYS makes me laugh-who's nieces are absolutley precious to me (Emily-Adi-Maranda & Chloe) I am thankful for the clothes I have even though I complain everytime I get in that closet...I am thankful for the awesome friends I have--I am thankful that we still continue to get together and can leave off right where we started. I am thankful Becky is having the girls Christmas party this year ;) . I am thankful that I have a warm bed to sleep in (even though I think it is always freezing in this house). I am thankful that my friend Jamie is getting better each and everyday. I am thankful Jesus loves me.... I am thankful that my first year in Uppercase Living went way beyond my expectations! I am thankful that I made new friends thru UL- (love ya andrea) I am thankful I only have 1 day and a half left this week :) I am thankful for nephews that always act crazy and drive me crazy....I am thankful that I am not cooking for Thanksgiving (and my family is too) I am thankful for my prayer group girls (miss ya Shannon) I am thankful for each and everyday that I am here cause you never now what lies ahead..... I have soooo much more to be thankful for but its getting late! THANK YOU Lord for ALL of my blessings!!
PASS IT ON <>< Amy

LOVE the new blog Amy! And all your things you're thankful for... in the sermon I heard Sunday, the pastor said continually giving thanks actually has the ability to even out your emotions! Isn't that something!

Hope you have a wonderful family. Love you and your sweet family... give Kristy, and Leah too a hug from me.
