What I'm Thankful For

... my little brother, who's {much} taller than me now...


 ... these two children that I love so much I can't even understand it and a husband who knows loving me means forgiving me and accepting me even when I'm cranky {and loves me STILL!}


...holiday traditions, like using my Great Grandmother's butter dish with {just a little} butter...



...my parents who show me what marriage is, what love is, who Jesus is...


 ... my Grandma who came to spend a week with family and meet her first great granddaughter...


 ... the legacy of love and grace that has been passed down to me, that I am passing to my own children in this season of my life...


...the hope I have in Christ for the seasons to come...


I am overwhelmingly grateful.



  Israel, put your hope in the LORD,

   for with the LORD is unfailing love
   and with him is full redemption.
 He himself will redeem Israel
   from all their sins. 

Psalm 130: 7-8
