Our {Wonderfilled} Week 10-Thanksgiving Edition


{via}

It's nearly Thanksgiving and I am talking today
about weak-in-the-knees gratitude.
The kind where you sit in humble awe
of all you have been given.
Thanking God above for every bit of it.


Realizing that while there are struggles,
difficulties, tough moments,
you're here now, and all
things are working for His good.


While I let this resonate,
I also want to keep space in my heart
to recognize that there are many with
immense weight on their shoulders 
in the midst of crisis and pain.
Those who cannot afford the
luxury of celebration.


During this beautiful, magical time of year,
fight feeling with feeling.
Pray for their hearts and their sadness
to the one and only who can hold them tight in His love.


And the list continues...
201. a sweet voice greeting me first thing in the morning,
"Good Morning Mama," {Aiden}


202. little boy words that I do not correct because
they are way too adorable 
{Aiden calls rocks, rockets}
{Beckham insists every fireman is named Sam}
{Liam with his immense vocabulary doing all the correcting for me}
{Griffin says otay for okay}

203.  every single person and act of kindness
that has been done for my family


204.  a little pilgrim 


205. a proud scout


206.  footed pjs and crazy morning hair, they get me every time


207.  bros working together


208. hungry little boys


209.  a husband who works hard all day and 
helps me tackle everything here as soon as he steps in the door


210.  a visit with a lifelong cherished friend


211. healthy homemade soup


212. bringing dinner to a friend 


213. these friends seeing more fun and playtime


214. all that is Christmas just around the corner


215. turkey and all the trimmings!



Wishing you and your families a BEAUTIFUL Thanksgiving!
