I'm thankful for... Day 1

I've been thinking a lot lately of all the blessings that God has given me and not just the big things but the little everyday things too. We can plan and plan our lives but if we don't take the time to enjoy the moment what is all the planning worth? Each day I thank God for what He has given me but sometimes it's just a general prayer. I need to be more specific and continually be giving up prayers of Thanksgiving through out my day!

On that help me get into the habit of doing this I plan to post one specific thing I'm thankful for each day of November. Hopefully by being accountable to doing it on here I'll get in the habit and do it for a long time to come.

Today I'm thankful for...Family! More specifically Ryan and Teagan! As I've looked back over the last six or so years I can see why God has put Ryan in my life. He has always been there for me and we've been through a lot. Especially our miscarriage and our long road to having Teagan. He never gives up on me and he never lets me give up on myself! He doesn't devalue my feelings even if my heart is breaking for a family that's lost a love one, someone I knew of but wasn't even remotely close to. Instead he holds me close and prays with me for the family. He is a great father and I can't wait to see him in action as Teagan and any other children we might have grow up.
Teagan has been my light! It's so exciting to watch him do something new in what seems like an everyday occurance. He helps me get excited about the little getting his first two teeth in a week's time! His smile light's up any bad or sad day and his laugh is contagious! I'm thankful that God chose me to be his mom and with God's help I get the privilege of helping mold his life to be like God's!
