Giving Thanks


I'm thankful for french fries and good conversation.  I'm thankful for pajama days and laughter.  I'm thankful for Pumpkin Spice frozen yogurt and cherished best friends.  I'm thankful for growth through pain.  I'm thankful for examples of faith and enduring courage.  I'm thankful for late nights with good books.  I'm thankful for special, surprise packages in my mailbox.  I'm thankful for compassion.  I'm thankful for my health.


I'm thankful for light.  I'm thankful for joy.  I'm thankful for ice cubes and house plants.  I'm thankful for fuzzy slippers.  I'm thankful for warm toes.  I'm thankful for sticky kisses and for chubby hands to hold.  I'm thankful for prayer and for the reminder that comes when I'm on my knees, that tells me I'm never forgotten.

I'm thankful for kindness.  I'm thankful for inspiration and creativity.  I'm thankful for support.  I'm thankful for the people who love me for me.

  5. I'm thankful for that super sassy, one-of-a-kind Mama Leisha! Great post girl, as always. I've been thinkin' 'bout you lately. It's been a few since we've touched base. The past and upcoming holidays have had me running in circles. I'm sure all the mommies of the world are feeling it too. I wouldn't trade it though ... it really is the most wonderful time of the year. Lots of time spent with family, lots of great food, and lots of fun lights and decorations. Oh how I love it! Looks like you and your beautiful brood are doing well.

    Wishing you all the best this holiday season!
