A Season For Everything!

Well it is safe to say that I have been a slacking blogger lately! I will say, if it is any comfort, that this has leaked into other parts of my life too! Like today when I headed out for a long run and turned around at the 3 mile mark because I just didn't feel like it! I am thinking of signing up for another race so that way I have something to train for.

I would be not only a bad blogger but an overall bad lady if I didn't stop to reflect on the things I am thankful for. I will post pics from Thanksgiving once I find my cord for my of the downfalls of moving! But
this year we were at my parent's house and our usual tradition is to go around the table to say what we are thankful for. It is always an amazing time to reflect on the year and all the blessings God had showered us with. This year, if you have followed my blog, has been a tough one for me but on Thursday as I looked around the "adult" and "kiddie" tables I knew what I was most thankful for...God's faithfulness...
  • I was thankful to be standing there next to my husband who I love more and more each day! It has been a roller coaster year for our family, but we have landed on our feet and for that I am forever grateful!
  • I was thankful for our little girl...healthy and happy terrorizing her cousins. There is not a day that goes by that I am not reminded just how blessed we are that she is healthy!
  • I was thankful to have my Dad sitting across from me at the table. This year was the first time that I contemplated my life without him. I knew that God would bring him through but I wasn't quite sure how. But there he was crying (it is always a tearfest!) and actually eating Thanksgiving meal! I'm thankful Emma has more time to get to know her Papa Lennie!
  • I was thankful for my Mom and sister Amy. They are my cheerleaders, my giggle friends, my solution finders! I am so blessed to have them!!!
  • I was thankful for our two nieces and the amazing little girls they are turning into! I can't wait to see how they change the world!
  • I was also thankful for the wonderful friends in my life...they weren't around the table but I still miss and love them!!!
Today we began putting up our Christmas decorations and started talking about Emma's upcoming birthday and about how fast time goes. We all have seasons in our lives. Some are lush summers where a carefree air is all around. Some are stark winters where there seems no end in sight. I am just thankful that no matter the season, I am surrounded by those that love me and support me!

I'm leaving you with our Christmas was free so I just couldn't resist...
