in the worldly wyles of materialism.
-with Vic being unemployed.
you know, a private pity party.
So I want to jot down the things I AM thankful for.
I know He loves me, even when I'm not very lovable.
I know He is always standing next to me
wiping away my tears when they fall.
He is always there rejoicing with me in my triumphs.
He is always protecting me and my loved ones from harm.
I know He died for me
so that I may stand before my Father in Heaven guiltless,
as long as I do my part,
so that I too, may return to my Heavenly Home
and live my 'Happily Ever After'.
rejoice with me, and to protect me.
My husband has an incredible love for me
and the children we've borne together.
He is my best friend and my lover.
He is my soul mate and I am in awe of him
and all he does for me and our family.
They are what I live for, they bring me great happiness.
They do make me crazy at times, to be totally honest,
but that's what they're supposed to do...right?
They have been awesome this year in all the ups and downs
and NEVER complain.
With the holiday season upon us,
not once have they been the typical whiny kids
with the 'I want, I want, I want' attitude.
They go out of their way to give rather than take.
have found the love of their lives
and am thankful for my Son-in-Laws,
and the love they have for my daughters.
My sweet baby Jaedyn has brought such joy
and laughter into my life this year.
She truly has been a great blessing in our lives.
When everything else seems dark,
all I have to do is look into her beautiful bright eyes
and know all is well and good.
that allows me to do 'most' of the things I want.
I would love to lose some poundage,
but overall, I know that I'm healthy and my family is healthy.
That is such a great blessing in itself.
We all have small aches and pains,
but Heavenly Father has watched over us this year
and thankfully we haven't had any major health issues.
We haven't seen any monetary blessings from the job itself yet.
But, just having it and knowing the potential it can bring
has brought new life into our home.
I know Vic will do amazing in this new quest.
You know who you are.
just as others have blessed our life this year.
We have a roof over our head and food to eat
by the grace of others,
and soon, I want to be a blessing to those that struggle
and have no hope.
It truly is humbling,
when I think about the many blessings
that have come our way this year.
the proof is all around us.
