Month of Thanks

Little Guy is off taking his shower and doing his nighttime routine which means I have a few minutes by myself.   We have the house to ourselves tonight since Big Guy and hubs are taking a class together.  

When Little Guy is ready we are going to snuggle up together on the couch with our cups of caramel apple cider and enjoy some time together playing Racko.     Little Guy is practicing his Racko skills since he recently challenged "Uncle" Randy to a Racko tournament.    

I can't believe that this is November.     The month of thanksgiving.     While it has been a year of challenges, I definitely have so much to be thankful for in my life.   

At the top of that list are my precious boys -- all three of them.    I love my husband and two boys more than I have words to express.    

Going through the stresses of health, finances, job insecurities and so many other things have put a strain on our marriage like it would anyone else.      We both struggled with how we were handling these things individually, but it took even more work to find ways to handle these things together.      Fortunately, we are both determined and stubborn especially when it comes to our marriage.    For that I am especially thankful.     When I look at my sweet hubs today I see a man who not only loves me, but loves me enough to stick with me through whatever each day may bring.

I have watched my precious boys grow physically, spiritually, academically and emotionally this year. When it comes to academics, I tell them that maybe after I finish 4th grade for the third time with Little Guy I will know all of it!     Seeing both of my boys be baptized this year is definitely a highlight and something I would repeat all of 2010 to see.   

I thank God every moment of the day for these precious gifts He has given me.    I cherish every minute that I have with them.

Even the most luving couples can have bad days when life stresses you out.
