On this my most favorite holiday I do indeed have much to be thankful for but mostly for today I am thankful God allowed me to be wife and a mommy. Besides my pure delight from being a child of the Most High King -He gives me much joy and delight in my sweet husband and precious children. We enjoyed a fun morning together watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and having a few sausage balls and some breakfast casserole - this is our tradition and I love it. A friend of mine sent me this list of the following 10 things a mom can be thankful for and I thought I would share it today for I am indeed thankful for these things I added a bit to make it my own:
sloppy kisses from a little one or a stolen kiss from a big one
family devotions and bedtime snuggles
the gift of another day with my husband and children
forgiveness when I mess up
hearing "mama!" or "mommy!"
a smile, a tear, a knowing glance, a shared moment
the joy that only being a mother can bring
Thank you Father for this incredible gift of motherhood!!
