Thankful Thursday #2

I've had a rough week, starting with last Thursday.  So I'll be honest, I didn't follow my own suggestion and write down something I'm thankful for every day.  So today I'm going to share about some of the people in my life that I am so very thankful for.  God has placed each and every one of them in my life for a reason.

I mentioned him last week, but of course, my husband.  We have been through so much together.  And he still loves me!  This man is seriously my best friend.  The one person I can talk to about absolutely anything and know there will be no judgement.  He is my biggest fan, even when I don't deserve it at all.  I couldn't do life without him.

Oh, my kids.  Someday I will share our journey to becoming a family of five.  There's a lot more to it than most people know.  These kids are my life.  They are a dream come true.  They drive me crazy, but they fill my heart with so much love that I oftentimes feel like it's about to burst.  They challenge me and bless me every day.  I am so blessed to be their mom.

My Mom.  She has taught me so much, and she's always there for me when I need her.

My Dad.  I'll always be his baby girl.  :)  And he's the world's best grandpa!

My in-laws.  I was super fortunate to marry into a wonderful family!

My pastors and church family.  I am so blessed to be a part of such a great church!

My awesome mommy friends, C, Q, and J.  These three ladies know me, love me, support me.  We are sisters.

I could go on and on about all the amazing people in my life... My step-dad, siblings and siblings-in-law, aunts, uncles, cousins, MOPS moms, blog followers (Hi! You're awesome!), children's workers at church, small group members, neighbors...  It's so easy to feel like I'm all alone, but if I think for just a minute, I realize that that is so far from the truth. 

So, THANK YOU for being in my life. 

Thank you, Lord, for all for all of the beautiful people that you have placed in my life.  They are each so special to me in so many different ways.  They have helped me learn and grow, laugh and cry.  They have shown me love and support.  They have prayed for me and reminded me to keep my eyes on You, Jesus.  If any one of them was missing, life would not be the same. 

I would love to hear what you are thankful for this week.  If you haven't thought about it, taken a few minutes and think about all the different people that you get to go through this life with.  Who are you thankful for?


  1. I agree with you. I'm so blessed by so many people in my life. Here's my Thankful Thursday post for the week:

  2. I'm sorry it has been a rough week.

  3. sorry you had a rough week! but what a good list! i had a similar experience this week - it's been a rougher week and we got out our thankful paper/poster that we put out each thanksgiving and fill it up with things we're thankful for but somehow it sat there empty all week long. I know I have SOOO much to be thankful for and should've been filling it up all week!


I love, love, love hearing from you! So what's up? :)
