Thankful Thursday

I have not done a Thankful Thursday post in quite some time.  I believe I could do a post each day for something I'm thankful for.  The blessings that come each and every day, from the small things to the bigger things are truly wonderful.

I hope that I never take for granted things such as God, health, family, friends, livelihood, our home etc.  We are infinitely blessed!

I've noticed that a few people on Facebook are doing the 30 Days of Thankful posts.  I am enjoying these very much.

Today we can also be grateful for the freedom we enjoy in our country because of our veterans past and present.
I stepped outside to check on Jadyn earlier today.  She was on her tummy, on the driveway and coloring with sidewalk chalk.  She was lying right beneath the flag.  I thought it made a neat photo opportunity.

Last week, Lauryn, Jadyn, and I took a little day trip to Iowa to spend the day with Kaitlyn.  Kaitlyn and Chris live in Kansas City and so we decided to meet halfway between here and there.  We had a great time together, having lunch and hanging out at the mall.  I hadn't see Kaitlyn since June, and that was much too long.  Couldn't wait until Christmas for their visit, so we decided it was time to get together. I'm so glad we were able to spend time all together.  Here is a photo that someone took for us.

I'm thankful for very simple moments too, such as these.....
Happiness is having a kitty who loves you....
a girl who surprises you with her silly antics...
a son who is not afraid to show his silly side...
and a girl who knows how to shop.

We all have many things to be thankful and I know sometimes I take it for granted and have to take a step back and remember not to take it for granted. Love the picture of you and your daughters.
