I'm thankful for lots of things, although sometimes I don't show it. I'm thankful for my husband and kids. They are a joy to serve. I love beginning each new day with them and seeing what the Lord has for us.

I love the Lord and am so very thankful for his grace. Everyday I can start over when I've made a mess of things. 

I'm thankful for all of my friends and family. For Susan, Sarah, Lizzy, Shannon, Natasha, Natalie, Jamie, Vickie, oh the list goes on. For my sisters, Denise, April, Cindy, and Tracey, and for my brother Jimmy. It's great to stop and think of each one and realize how much they mean to me. 

I've recently moved to England from Michigan, and though there are challenges of leaving all that you've known, I am thankful to be here. Thankful for all the places we get to see, and the new people we get to meet. For the great experiences that our kids get to have. 

I am also thankful that our dog, Fletch, is coming to join us here on October 24th.

I'll share more another time... thanks for reading. :-)

Great post. I am sure you've seen my "moments" posts on Fridays/Saturdays. These have helped my perspective so much. helped me be more thankful and treasure the simple things. I hope you join up on that one sometime too!!

Okay... I really should slow down and read more carefully! I see you moved to England from here! You will definitely have to keep us updated on what life is like over seas! Sounds interesting!
