Thankful, very thankful. . .

There is so many things I am thankful for. Really, I am overwhelmed.
God is good, He is SO good! I'm super thankful for this amazing little boy I get the chance to take care of each and every day! Um, actually, I take care of him at night too when he decides he needs a cuddle from Mom.
I'm thankful for my husband's safe return from Africa. I'm thankful for his amazing trip and experience and the amazing friends he got the
chance to meet while learning about the amazing country and people of Africa.
I bet you didn't think a person could use amazing that much, did you?

And, I really want to learn to carry my babies like they do. Isn't it amazing?

I'm also thankful I am not the one that has to drive this truck. I mean, really, only in Africa.

I'm also SO thankful for:
  • Grandparents in MT
  • G-pa in Taiwan
  • Lots of awesome (bet you thought I was going to use amazing :) Uncles and Aunts all over the place
  • Lots of super fun cousins
  • Amazing (there it is again) Friends!
  • God
  • So much more (don't worry, I will stop, I could go on forever)

I had the chance in a bible study to write down everything I am thankful from from A to Z. and, guess what, it was easy. I was almost bummed when the alphabet ran out of letters. I have SO much to be thankful for in my life.

Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving!

Small world. I know Lars Coleman. Haven't talked to him in a while, but his best friend is a very good friend of mine - matter of fact, I'm sitting at his best friend's house typing on his computer. Gotta love the LB.
