Christmas time is near…

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Can you believe that Christmas is just around the corner? Where in the world did this year go? I have been working 6 days a week and starting this week I will be working 7 straight days, granted my Sundays are only 4 hour days—but still, that’s a long time with no break between!

SO, if I am quite within the next few weeks, please forgive me…this gal’ is wore out!

I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving!!

Thankful-Weather

We had a CRAZY summer this year, very hot! 60+ consecutive days at 100+ I believe...

I am very thankful for cooler weather! In TX we don't have much of a winter, we may see a small amount of snow if were lucky! 

But it's been so nice bundling up in blankets (I wish sitting by a fireplace-don't have one) I can't wait to make chili in the crock-pot along with all of our other winter recipes. This time of the year is one of my favorites! 

So thankful for the crisp air <3

Thankful-Life in General

Life can be hard at times, not everything is picture perfect---but this is MY life, and I am extremely blessed and thankful! I am thankful for the many groups of people who have prayed for our family, even some we haven’t ever met in person! ‘Blessed are those that can give without remembering and receive without forgetting’…you all will never know how extremely thankful I am for y’all! I once read somewhere to ‘Be thankful for what you have, you’ll end up having more…if you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough!’ God’s plan for us, and each of you, is so very special…this plan was created for us long before we were born…I know each of us would have changed a few things given we were the option to plan our own life…however this is beyond our control. Sitting here looking back there are so many things I have overcome, so many people I have met, so many wonderful memories with friends and family, and all because of this journey…so although I wouldn’t have picked this plan out myself, I am so thankful God did! Thank you God, for this good life, thank you God for all the blessing and the abundance in my life!
I catch myself many of times counting my blessings and thanking God for my amazing life…but it’s not many days I remember to thank others in my life for being there and being there for me! This year has been one of the hardest through this journey, however it was one of the best as well…I want to personally thank all of my blog readers. You ladies/gentlemen never seize to amaze me…I never in a million years would have expected my boring ol’ life to bring so many friendships my way! I am so thankful for our emails, I am so thankful for the prayers you give my family and I am so thankful for all the sweet comments that you all leave me! I’m beyond grateful for y’all!
This Thanksgiving Season, let's remember what we truly have to be thankful for. Let's take a good, hard look around us and realize that while we may not have everything we want, what we want is not always what we need.

Thankful-Starbucks

YES, you heard that right....Starbucks! I am thankful for this little cup of heaven!

Whether it's my holiday favorites, or my vanilla latte, or the numerous of other flavors-I am thankful for the magic placed in this cup. I could be in an awful mood, be having the worst day, but the moment this cup is in my hand I have a smile on my face :)

Oh Starbucks...what was life like without you :)

Thankful-Friends

A true friend is the greatest of all blessings!

Over the years I have been blessed with some amazing friends. I am so grateful and so thankful for the the friendships we have. Call me biased but I believe I have some of the greatest :)

When you hit a speed bump in your life, you quickly learn who your true friends are and who aren't, you quickly learn how amazing your friends truly are. They are apart of our family--a true support system to Zach and I. We would be lost without them.

They send us cards in the mail to cheer us up or to just say 'hi', bring us homemade pickles because they know that's our favorite, give me my  IVF shots in the mall bathroom because we lost track of time, send us sweet emails/messages throughout hard times and good, send us flowers to work or leave them on our door step as good-luck/I'm thinking of you. Our friends know what we need in the moments we need it the most, our friends may not know are particular journey but they know how to listen when we need that shoulder to cry on. We are thankful for them, each and everyone. God blessed us with amazing friends.

Thankful-Infertility

I KNOW, most of my readers are probably saying 'WHAT??' at the moment....but hear me out!

Without the struggles we have encountered with infertility we wouldn't be where we are today in life. We wouldn't be as close as we are to God. Our marriage has grown extremely close throughout the 5+ years we have been trying to conceive. We don't know why God picked us for this journey, but he did and we are beyond thankful due to the personal growth in our lives. 

I am thankful for all the tears that I have cried for they have taught me to appreciate laughter, and they have given me the ability to see that joy comes shortly after. Through my tears I have come to know and trust in God, how he is always there and comforts you in your sorrows. I am thankful for the storms in life that I have encountered, knowing that the rainbow is at the end. I am thankful for the peace and realization that they are only temporary storms and with time they will end.

Thankful-Family


God has blessed Zach and I both with AMAZING families. 

Our parents, siblings, grandparents and everyone else is truly greater than great!  Family is everything to Zach and I. While going through infertility we learned to lean on them more than ever as they became our ultimate support system, they became our foundation when we couldn't stand up and move forward...when we were weak they helped us smile, they taught us that life will go on and as long as we believe in Faith our prayers will be answered.

Family is truly EVERYTHING. We are Thankful for ours!

Thankful-Husband

I not only married my soul mate, I married my best friend.

 

And for that I am beyond thankful! 

Zach is my world, he loves me for me. We have had our share of hurdles throughout the years, but I am so thankful that God has chosen him for me to ride with throughout these hurdles!

He knows just how to put a smile on my face, and is my biggest support system throughout my lowest of lows...he is the light of my life!

Thankful-God

I am starting a little late, however I am going to try to post (as often as I can) this month about the many things I am thankful for in life. 


I have many reasons to be Thankful for our glorifying God--mostly I am so thankful for all he has blessed me with. I am so thankful that he has taught me how to be patient, and how strong he has helped me be during my toughest of tough times. 

So during this Thanksgiving season, I am thankful for a loving, caring, and Big God who loves us for us!!
