Happy Thanksgiving!

So, I neglected to do the Thirty Days of Thanks for November. Between releasing my first book to keeping up with homeschooling, I didn't have time! But to make up for it, I'm going to simply post them all at once.

I am thankful for:

1.  The Grace of God ( Goodness knowns I need it!)
2. A husband who loves me ( not asking questions why, just extremely grateful!)
3. Four beautiful and healthy children (healthy=running around constantly ;)
4. A large extended family that actually likes each other! ( novel thought, I know!)
5. A warm home (right now the wind is howling...I want another blanket.)
6.That my husband has a job. (and that he actually LIKES his job)
7. That my book is number two on Amazon's Regency Bestseller list  ( squeal!)
8. That I can stay home with my children ( Best. Job. Ever.)
9. For homeschooling ( Worth the effort, totally. )
10. For friends 
11. For coffee
12. For Starbucks ( no, its not the same as coffee...Starbucks offers SOOO much more..wouldn't you agree?)
13. For a washing machine ( I have four children and their laundry breeds...I'm not kidding)
14. For an oven that works ( we've replaced ours twice in the past few years, I guess I'm hard on them)
15. Coupons ( because I'm that cheap)
16. My kindle 
17. My nook ( how Politically Correct of me!)
18. That the election is over and I don't have to listen to anymore advertisements on it.
19. For a car that works 
20. For pumpkin pie. ( I have some won't be there long)
21. For apple cider ( hold on, I'm going to run and get some.)
22. For living in a farming community where I can purchase food from farmers
23. For a cell phone. ( because it's great to call your sister and just chat)
24. For the internet (and I'll include Facebook, Twitter and my blog in that mix)
25. For my church family ( I really should have said that sooner, but I was thinking about coffee)
26. For the sound of laughter echoing throughout my home at all times
27. For cuddling in the morning
28. For freedom
29. For those that died for that freedom
30. For Answered Prayers

Ok, that's my list. I'll probably post this and think of a million other things I wish I would have added to the list, but oh well!  So what about you? What are you thankful for?


  1. Have a great Thanksgiving with your family, Kristin :)

  2. I will Ruth! Thank you!! You as well!
