this year at thanksgiving

linking up with blair at wild and precious for the "give thanks" link up!

oh the blessings. the many blessings the Lord has bestowed upon me...may my heart continually sing of his love, faithfulness, and grace to me this week and for the weeks, months, and years to come. 

i am thankful...

for marriage. what the Lord has taught me through it and who i get to walk in it with: my sweet man.
that my family enjoys being together and loves each other fiercely. 
for a roof over my head. a house to keep. and yard for our children to play in (one day).
for sweet friendships, new and old. 
for a church in which the gospel is spoken in word and in deed. 
that this time last year i had a precious little baby swimming around in my belly. 
for that precious baby. oh what a joy it has been that the Lord blessed us with him. 
for the privilege of being a mommy. a dream come true.
that my husband still holds my hand and laughs at my silly jokes.
for hot tea and european chocolates.
for avocados all year round. to be used for guacamole, salads, and baby food. 
for seasons. of life and a of the year. 
that we live close to both sides of our family. that our parents get to watch our children grow up. 
for "everything but the kitchen sink" salads. 
for the opportunity to stay home with my sweet little. 
that i have a wonderful little kitchen to make my family healthy and yummy meals in.
for handwritten letters. and packages in the mail. 
for a joy-filled baby boy who loves to clap and dance to any music. 
for cold fall evening spent under warm blankets with a cup of hot cocoa.
that we live a short car ride away from the beach and the mountains.
for technology especially skype to connect with friends and family with. 
for thrift stores and antique markets right around the corner. 
that crates of clementine's are stacking up at local grocery stores. 
for my grandmother's squash casserole recipe. 
that the Lord of all creation love and cares for me. 

for these and many other things, i am thankful.

praise God from whom all blessings flow. 
praise Him all creatures here below. 
praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

I too live a short ride to the beach and the mountains, it is a huge blessing. I love it so much, I can't imagine not being able to see both in the same day. Great post, happy to link up with you! Happy Thanksgiving!
