Today I am Thankful for....

Today I am Thankful for.......

God, and my ability to worship him freely. The ability to have faith in him which allows me to know virtues like Faith, Love, Charity and many more.... Most of which I see in people all around me <3

My family. Each member of my family brings me joy and teaches me new things each and every day. I am blessed beyond measure.

Laughter. Especially when I hear a child laugh. It brings me such joy and peace.

Adoption. I am not thankful that there is a need for adoption, but I am thankful to be a part of a community of amazing people. These fellow adoptive parents are more than just friends.... They are family.... When they have joy, I have joy. When they are sad, I am sad...... The bond that I have developed with many of these amazing women has been such a blessing in my life.

Friends. Those people around you that know when you need them even when they are far away. Their hearts break with you and are overjoyed with you.... Those that truly care where life leads you.

Food to eat. I never thought I would be so thankful for this, but my eyes have been opened.... Why many go without my stomach is always full.... I will always be thankful for each day that my kids do NOT know what it is like to go to bed hungry.

Internet. I know this seems like a silly thing to be thankful for, but without it I wouldn't have met some people that are truly a blessing in my life!!!

You. Yes you!!! For those who took the time to read to the end. For those who encourage me and support me on a regular basis. For just being you! God loves you for being you..... so do I!!

What are you thankful for??
