Since I'm awesome at thank-you notes...

It is 11:49pm on this Thanksgiving Eve and I'm waiting on Drew to come to bed. He's such a great husband - he's in the kitchen washing the crock pot for me since I need it first thing tomorrow morning. Anyways, tonight I was explaining to Cash that tomorrow is Thanksgiving - a day where we tell God "thank you" for everything He's given us. So, to practice what I preach I've created the following list. A list of mini thank-you notes, if you will...

Thanks, God, for...
  • Loving me, finding me, saving me, healing me, putting up with me...this list goes on and on.
  • my husband. He is more than I ever could've imagined praying for. I'm so glad You know me better than I know myself! 
  • my beautiful baby boy. So many times I'm reminded how lucky I am to have a healthy child. I'm working on remembering that when he's extra whiney or refusing his naps.
  • my family. They truly are my best friends and I wish we got to spend more time together.
  • making me a woman. I know this may sound weird, but I love that I have a tender heart and sensitive soul because it helps even out things in my marriage; I love that I got to experience the joys (and annoyances) of pregnancy - even though I gave up my size 5's in exchange - and would do again in an instant,  I love looking at decorating and fashion magazines and envisioning my dream house and trying to imitate an "LA look" on an Indy budget, and I love that there's something different about "mommy" when Cash is upset. 
  • Target! I know their return policy is annoying, but maybe You could talk to the head honcho about easing up on that a bit? 
  • our jobs! I know sometimes I complain (only to You) about giving up time with Cash, but I know this job is perfect for our family right now and such a blessing. 
  • disposable diapers! Holy NIGHT...there have been so many times I've silently thanked you over this one. Lordy, does our kid stink sometimes!!!
  • toothpaste. 
  • CHOC-O-LATE!!!!!! 
There are so many things I could and want and NEED to thank God for, but this is just a beginner list. Its getting late and I have to get up early to get food cookin, but I hope this list has, if anything, inspired you to send a shout-out to God for all the blessings He's given you...

Happy Thanksgiving!

too cool, b! what a great idea, and a great list :) I can agree with a lot of those things! And I love the "something different about mommy"... so perfect! I hope all is well with you and your cute little fam... I still would love to see you and meet Mr. Cash someday... but I DO know this time of year is bonkers... so let's try and get together in the new year. K? Love you much and have a wonderful day!
