Thank Full


I am thankful for the home that we live in and for the lives that we will build here.

I am thankful for a job that makes me smile every day and for the middle schoolers who allow me to be part of their world for a little while.

I am thankful for a church that teaches about the power of prayer, the importance of family, and the strength of faith.

I am thankful for friendships that make me a better person.

I am thankful for the readers who come back here every day to journey with me, without judgment, expectations, or demands.

I am thankful for just enough money in the bank each month.

I am thankful for family who send funny emails, inappropriate texts, and who are worth everything we’ve been through to live close to them again.

I am thankful for an incredibly smart, energetic, innovative, and funny two-year-old son who reminds me every single day that life is just good.

I am thankful for the beautiful smiles, nighttime cuddles, and incredible happiness that my seven-month-old daughter brings into my life.

I am thankful for the person who kisses me every morning, says he loves me every night, and stands beside me every day.

I have a lot to be thankful for this year, but above all of those things, I think I am most thankful for the trials and tribulations in our lives because, through those experiences, I have learned to be thankful for everything else.

Wishing you and your family all the blessings of thankfulness,
Katie, Chris, Michael, and Gracie
