Thankful Thursday

Life has been crazy around here but this morning I took a break to read some of my favorite blogs. I was inspired like always and know going to write what I'm thankful for. I know I have things to be thankful for, but its easier or seems to be easier to focus on all that is wrong. I'm not going to do that. I'm going to put a voice to all that Lord has blessed me with.
I'm Thankful for:
* Getting 2 walk in closets, a complete bedroom and half my garage packed yesterday. (My 10 and 8 yr. old boys helped.)
*The new house I'm about to move it to. It feels surreal.
*My 4 yr. old,2 1/2 yr. old, and 7 months old for taking long naps in the afternoon.
* That I found a orthodontist that is more concerned for my 10 yr. old well being than the money.
* That my children are all healthy
* That my husband decided to get healthy and lose weight on his own and in 5 month has gone from a 44 inch waist to a 38 inch waist. He has lost over 50 lbs. Way to go Honey.
*On September 14th we will have been married for 11 years. We married at 19 had our first born at age 19. With family loving us and praying for us we have grown alot and have come a long way. It's been an amazing journey that I never know I wanted to go on but I am so thankful I have.
*For Jesus who gives me a fresh start every morning.

Hey Amy,
Yippee on the new house! I bet you can't wait. And I so totally agree with you about long naps. It was a sad day in the Sakkab household when my kids stopped napping. A very sad day, indeed...
