Thankful...

. . .
I'm thankful...that i get to spend time with my family. 
I'm thankful...for the warmth of a home.
I'm thankful...for the love that is within my heart. 
I'm thankful...for the few days i get with my brother 
& that he lets me practice taking pictures of him without too much complaint...basically he rocks.
{Hunky right?!}
I'm thankful...for not having to work today!
I'm thankful...for food in my pantry.
I'm thankful...that i have a cat that lets me squeeze him daily.
I'm thankful...for the ability to hear and see.
I'm thankful...for the daily over-looked pleasures of life.
I'm thankful...for two of the most amazing parents that i miss every day.
I'm thankful...that i was given a heart that loves to express art. 
I'm thankful...for God's Word. 
I'm thankful...that i love reading young adult fiction. 
I'm thankful...for so many things.
. . .
Most importantly...
I'm thankful...for Jesus Christ and His forgiveness & sacrifice. 
Without Him, my life wouldn't have much meaning and in all honesty I probably wouldn't even be alive without Him and His love{another story for another time}. 
I'm so thankful that i have a Savior who loves me unconditionally, who strengthens me, who corrects me, shelters me, comforts me, embraces and encourages me...a Most High King who calls me daughter.
I am beyond blessed. 
. . .
I'll be out at my grandparents today with my mother's side of the family. 
Tomorrow i'll be with my father's side of the family.
Spending time with family=WINNING in my book.
. . .
What are your plans for the Holiday?
What are you thankful for?

Everything pales in comparison to the love and sacrifice of Jesus. I'm glad we can be thankful that we are his beloved.
And young adult fiction is super fun too :)
