A Thankful Heart is A Happy Heart: Day 2-6

Day Three
Today, I am thankful for my beautiful baby girl! She has been such a blessing an joy in our lives. I can't believe how much she has changed our lives for the better. She is beautiful, petite, smart, spoiled, sassy, stubborn, and strong willed. She looks like her daddy and acts like her mommy! She is such a wonderful blessing. Praise God for her!
Day Four
I am thankful for my parents: mom, dad, milly, and Jeff. They are always there exactly when we need them. My parents are simply amazing! They did a great job raising my sister and I. I am forever grateful for them for being patient with us and never giving up. I am the person I am today because of them.
I am thankful for my baby sister, Angelina Ballerina! She is a beautiful, talented, strong, and independent young Lady. We haven't ever been close or even friends, but lately we have been getting much closer and she is definitely come of my best friends. I love that we have finally reached this place and i hope it only gets better from here on out.
Today, I am thankful for Ashley! She was first a blog friend who I never met and now she is a true best friend! It is amazing how God works things out, isn't it? This girl keeps me sane most days, answers my random questions, helps me when I am stumped as a mom, deals with (and prays for) my serious fear of food poisoning and salmonella, is a serious rock star mom to two beautiful babies under two, wonderful wife, amazing Godly woman, and Pinterest friend! Praise God for her. I am thankful for you every single day girl. Thanks for all you do!! :)

A thankful heart is a happy heart!

Did that get the Veggie Tales song stuck in your head? That song is probably my absolute favorite Veggie Tales song ever!

I thank God for this day,
For the sun in the sky,
For my mom and my dad,
and this piece of Apple pie.

Form our home on the ground,
For his love all around,
That's why I say thanks everyday!

Because a thankful heart is a happy heart!
I'm glad for what I have,
That's an easy way to start!

For the love that He shares,
'Cause he listens to my prayers,
That's why I say thanks everyday!

Doesn't that song just make your heart smile? It does mine. Now that Halloween has passed we can get on to the good holidays! Call me a party pooper but I don't like Halloween at all. The month of November I want to make sure I am realizing how blessed I am. There are so many blessings in my life that I take advantage of on a daily basis! I want to focus on that this month. I can't promise it will be everyday, I will probably be combining 2 days at a time. (With the exception of next week when I am on vacay and have limited internet access) So, let's get started!

I am thankful for God! Let's be honest here- would any of this even be possible without him? He is amazing, indescribable, ever present, and did I mention amazing?!

Today (and everyday) I am thankful for my amazing husband! He has changed my life for the better! He is such an amazing man and I just love him to pieces. He is such a great father, leader, role model, and hard worker, I would be lost without him. I don't say it enough but thank you husband! You are the best :)
