This time last year we were just praying for a baby and this year God not only gave us A baby but he gave us our Theodore, perfectly designed for us and we’re perfectly designed for him.  I couldn’t imagine anything to be more thankful for than that.

Last year at Thanksgiving I wrote this post about how much I adore the amazing ladies in my life and it still holds so true!  I am so blessed to have the very best, most beautiful (inside and out) friends and sisters!  I’d love to start writing a special “thankful” post each year, so that I can go back and see what was held the most special to me throughout the years as they go.  Here is my list for 2016:

-Blake and his desire and ability to provide for us.  He is such a great dad, it overflows my heart watching him with Theodore

-When Blake gets home from work late, if Theodore’s already asleep, the way he’ll lean into the bassinet to kiss him good night

-Theodore and his precious smiles.  I literally love him to pieces in every single way.  There’s not a cry he could make that would take an ounce of my love away.

-The way Theodore smiles when he sees Blake, there is nothing better

-Date nights with my love, even if that is ice cream and a movie at home after Teddy’s asleep

-My family, on both sides, and how much they care for us and for Teddy

-Our home, I pray that it is always warm and welcoming

-Getting to stay home with Teddy, it is a blessing

-Katie, my sister, best friend, and the only family member who lives out of town, coming to visit in three short weeks and stay with her baby for a month!!

-Good health for our family

-Beautiful music to listen to every day

-Social media to share all of our experiences and enjoy the experiences of those we care about

-Church and our faith

-Friends and the happiness they brings us

We are so blessed in so many ways, and I am truly grateful for so much in our lives!  In fact, it is hard to think of anything negative after soaking up and writing out the things I am thankful for.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!  What are you most thankful for this year?

If you want to find happiness, find gratitude
