Thankful Fridays

Nov 8: I am thankful for aunts and uncles and cousins. I only have 4 first-cousins, 2 aunts, and 3 uncles, but I’m so lucky to know my family and spend time with them.

Nov 9: I am thankful for children. Three months from today my BEST FRIEND & her hubs are due with their first baby. I am SO STINKING EXCITED to hold, cuddle, babysit, spoil, and love on their baby girl. What a blessing it is for them to bring a baby into the world- and I’m so thankful to be a small part of her/their lives!

She’s further along now, but I love her countdown!

Nov 10: Today I am thankful for technology because it allows me to stay connected with friends all over the country and world. I have friends in Ohio and Arizona and Japan and all over. Without technology I wouldn’t be able to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my long time friend Aubrey!

I've known this lady since 5th grade- we were 11. Now we're 24. WHAT HAPPENED?

Nov 11: Today I am thankful for my grandfathers, my uncle, my brother-in-law, and all the veterans that have dedicated so much to our country and our safety. I will never have the mental or physical strength that it takes to defend our freedom. Thank you to all those who have served, do serve, and will serve.

Veterans

Nov 12: On days they drive me craziest, I am most thankful for my dogs. Lylee and Enzo are K’s and my world. We don’t have human-children and they are filling that gap nicely right now. Despite the death and destruction they brought upon my comforter today, I wouldn’t trade them for the world.

Nov 13: I am thankful for siblings. I only have one brother, but when I married K I gained another brother and a sister (and a niece and nephews)! Happy Birthday to my brother-in-law, Josh!

Nov 14: Today is my dad’s 50th birthday. (I know, lots of birthdays this week.) With each passing day I realize more and more how lucky I am to be born to my mom and dad. I have learned so much from my parents and I continue to do so every day. My dad is the most hardworking, honest, funny, compassionate person I know. They say little girls look for someone like their father and I see a resemblance between K and my dad every day- my dad taught me what to look for in a partner. We’re celebrating with dinner and some fun tonight (he doesn’t know the plan..shhhh) and I hope he has a fabulous 50th year! Love you, Dad!

Grateful
