30 days of Thankfullness.

I know many people were posting things daily, but I like to see mine all in one place so here goes.

1. I am ever thankful to have God in my life, while never running out of things to thank him for. He continues to bless me each and every day.
2. I am thankful for my husband, who has been by my side each and everyday for the last 24 years.
3. I am thankful for my 6 children. Buke (Dennis III), Samantha, Bryan, Dennise, Deanna, and Dorothy. They have made me the Mom I am today.

7. I am thankful for a roof over my head, food to eat, and clothes to wear.
8. I am thankful for the big forgiving, loving heart that God gave me.
9. I am thankful for the parents God placed in my life who loved me with unconditional love, and raised me to always do the best I can, while always being myself.
10. I am thankful to my mother-in-law who raised one child to be hardworking, strong, stubborn, supportive, and independent, . Someone who I will spend the rest of my life with, and proud to call my husband.
11. I am thankful to all of my friends far and near for all of the support you have given me throughout the years. You all hold a special place in my heart.

18. I am thankful that I know how to use coupons, rebates, as well as online activities that have helped us provide for our family.
19. I am thankful the morning that my husband's job called to say he got hurt they were not calling to tell me he died, and that even though it is almost a year since his accident,  he is learning to walk again, and is alive and well to be here with us.
20. I am thankful that even though I am proud of my children, God has kept me humble.

29. I am thankful for my youngest child Dorothy, for always wanting to snuggle and the endless hugs that she gives.
30. I am very thankful for November 30th, 2013 when my brakes stopped working when I was on my way to my daughter's baby shower, and Midas being full fit me in and not only fixed my van, but worked past when they were open just so they could make sure that me and my family could get home safe and sound.
