So Thankful...

I just got home from a wonderful girls weekend away...and it made me realize how very thankful I am.

I am thankful for the blessing of friendship. Last year at this time, I was out of town for a girls weekend with my closest friends from Phoenix and I wondered if I'd ever make close girlfriends here. God has definitely answered that prayer. Not only did I get to spend last weekend in New Hampshire with my friends from here in Indiana, I will also get to spend time in January with my dear friends in Arizona.

I am thankful for my husband. He was totally willing to take care of our girls while I was gone. And he didn't complain...even when he got the phone call on Friday that our youngest was sick with a fever and he needed to pick her up from school. He did a great job taking care of the girls!

I am thankful for my mom. She and I went up earlier than the other girls and stayed an extra day. Our first day in New Hampshire started with us sitting at the ocean laughing so hard that we cried and it ended the same way. I am so blessed to have a mom that is also my friend!

I am thankful for our kids. Although they were slightly jealous that I got a weekend away in New Hampshire, they were truly happy for me and they were well-behaved for my hubby...for the most part! :-)

As Thanksgiving approaches, I encourage you to think about what you're thankful for...not just on Thanksgiving, but every day!

Praise God -- isn't it wonderful to take a moment and realize how much work He is doing? And what a treat to have time in New Hampshire... I went to college there and it's one of my favorite places! A little bit of heaven!

So glad you linked up! You have a wonderful blog here!
