5 Things I’m Ridiculously Thankful For:

My relationship with Jesus Christ: In Him I live and move and have my being. Acts 17:28
My Husband + Children: God’s biggest gifts to me… They bring me so much life and joy.  Words are never enough for these 4.  I am eternally grateful for their lives and the role they play in mine.
Family + Community: Nothing like family and support.  They can become your back bone, source of growth, fellowship and a place of safety.
Our Health: It is absolutely true when they say health is wealth.  Ava was sick with pneumonia a a week ago and I thought I was going to loose my mind… we don’t know what we have until we don’t have it.  I don’t take our health for granted.
Dreams fulfilled: God doesn’t have to fulfill our dreams but He does and it is so fulfilling.  I am surprised at every corner and finding myself having to dream up bigger dreams as God brings the impossible to life.  I am in awe of His goodness and ability to out-dream me.
I am so thankful for so much more, but these are the 5 things at the forefront of my mind! What are you thankful for this year?! I would love to hear in the comments! I hope you all have an amazing Thanksgiving with friends and family tomorrow! Ben and I both work today and then we will come home this evening and start prepping food and the house! Its going to be a fun day of games, food and lounging around!!  Hope you all have an amazing Thanksgiving and thank you as always for stopping by the blog!!
