I Am So Thankful For...

I am so thankful for my Savior, Jesus Christ. He gave his life for me. He alone is worthy of all praise and honor and glory. It's Him I live for. 

I am so thankful for my husband, Alexander. He is my rock when I am emotionally a wreck. He's level-headed and thinks so logically. He's constant and doesn't change much. He's always so sensitive to what's going on in my sphere of life. He's an amazing, diligent father. 

I am thankful for my daughter Ahavah and that her biopsy results came back normal! 
I am so thankful that her hematologist is sending us to the U of M for more extensive testing to figure out what's wrong with my daughter. 

I am thankful for this country where we can have the best medical service in the world! This came in handy with our Emergency Room visit friday night from a 1 hour and 15 minute long nose bleed that could not be stopped. 

I am thankful for all my kids. They are each so intricicatly woven together with unique personalities, gifts, and callings. They each see the world differently, through different lenses and filters. They each have strengths and weaknesses that God specifically gave them to fit into our family as a unit and to fulfill the calling God has placed on each of them. 

I am thankful for my mom and being able to spend a wonderful, peaceful Thanksgiving day at her house. We went sledding, we ate LOTS of food, we watched Charlie Brown, and we played games. 

I am thankful for a husband (again, I know... he's pretty great *blush* *smile*) that blessed me with money to go black Friday shopping! 

I am thankful for sisters that walk with the Lord. Sisters that will wake up at 5am in the morning after staying up late to set up my Christmas Decorations, to go black Friday shopping even though they don't have money to spend themselves. 

I am thankful for a dad and step mom that follow the Lord despite the cost. They pray for me. They care for my little brothers and are raising them in the Lord. What more could a daughter want??

I am so thankful for the blessings the Lord's given us! We are so rich! We don't go hungry, ever. We don't have to worry about where to sleep. We don't have to worry about being beheaded, like my dear brothers and sisters in Iraq. I am so, so thankful. 

My only prayer is that I live my life to honor My Lord, Jesus Christ with all that I have, and all that I am.
