thankful

I am thankful for 2 little boys who think I am a beauty queen, a trained chef, a comedian and protege of Martha Stewart. I am also thankful I have at least a few more years until these illusions crumble.

I am thankful for my crow's feet laugh lines...because they prove I've have a lot to laugh and smile about.

I am thankful for my 2 jobs outside of the home, that meet such different needs and use such different parts of me.

I am thankful for my hubs, who I unashamedly call my personal Edward Cullen. He will undoubtedly continue to dazzle me until we are old and gray.

I am thankful to do life with a group of people who love Jesus more than they love me, and that fact alone makes them the best friends a girl could have.

I am thankful for Pei Wei, picnik.com, ballet flats, big gaudy rings, black nail polish, and clothes from Target.

I am thankful for my 2 sisters and a brother who are amazing human beings...who I call not only family, but true friends.

I am thankful for my mentor, who lovingly "gets up in my kitchen." Her influence has grown me and changed me in ways I can't finds words to express.

Finally, I am thankful for a relentless, loving Savior, who calls me His beloved, and who has more for me than I could ever imagine. His love is my journey. A journey I gladly take one beautiful step at a time.

I ran across your blog and I really liked to read what you are thankful for, very similar to what I myself am thankful for. Very sweet.
