Thankful "Four"

My first instict was to be sarcastic and silly when playing along withSupahmommy and MommyBrain in their MEme today.

Because that's just the way my brain works.

But, I decided to deviate from my normal deviant behavior and be serious with this. The four things that I am most thankful for(no rankings here!!)

1. Hubs- I'm thankful for a husband who takes care of me and the kids. Who sometimes works what I call "too hard" to take care of us. Who loves us. Who can always make me laugh. Who still looks at me like I'm the size 2 I was when we met. Who hasn't gone to get his eyes checked to see that that's not the case anymore. Who encourages our dreams and isn't afraid of trying to make them come true.

2. Health- I'm thankful that my kids are healthy. We had a bad scare with Bear this year, but he'll be okay. I've heard of so many babies this year who are not well. Parents are ill and kids are losing their parents before the kids are even old enough to say "I love you" to them. So, I'm extremely thankful that we all have our health.

My cousin's newborn, 10 days old and having heart surgery this afternoon. PRAY for him.

3. My boys- Monkey, Bear, and Cub. I love them to itty bitty pieces. Each with his distinct personality. Monkey, my bright 4-going-on-30 first-born. Bear, my sweet-as-can-be athlete. Cub, my fun-loving baby. Each one of them is truly a blessing.

4. My bff- I love having someone who knows me better than anyone else. Whom I can tell everything to, with no fear of judgement...who often knows what I'm going to say before I say it anyway.

(Good thing this was only asking for four...any more and I'd have to throw in something like I'm thankful for chocolate or maybe I'm thankful for wine.)

*Monkey had to do this same thing in Sunday school yesterday and he said he was thankful for Mommy, Daddy, church, and winter wolves? Winter wolves? Why not your brothers? "Because I LIKE winter wolves!" and then he laughed his silly little head off.

What are you Thankful "Four"?

These are great! I can't agree more on being thankful for healthy kids...and I will pray for your cousin's baby for sure. I am so thankful for my son every day...and I truly believe that I was supposed to make every bad decision I've ever made so I would have him someday...so I am thankful for all of my poor choices!

I can tell my husband anything, but there's nothing like being able to say stuff you don't always have to explain to someone with the same body parts as you!!

We had two children come to our quarterly prayer meeting. They each shared how they were thankful for their home, clothes, education and family. Sweet. I love how yours' is thankful for winter wolves! What a scream!

Ty for commentingon my page and I will definitely lift your baby cousin in prayer. I still know God whose heart it is to heal his children.. I pray for the wisdom of God on those surgeons hands, angels to surround your family during the time of surgery and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding to overflow your hearts and minds...

My first inclination was to be sarcastic too. However, like you I took the high road and decided to be serious for once. Whew! Glad that's over!

My husband often works "too hard" too, but I am thankful that he is working.

Winter wolves - too funny! I love the things that kids come up with!

I am thankful for laughter. I love my family and all but when times get tough if you couldn't laugh what would happen. The infectous laughter of a child or your husband, you then remember all over again why you love them,then you thank the lord for them.

Winter wolves? That in itself is priceless! Prayers for the little one. It is so eye-opening to the gifts you have when you see the little guy there in the hospital. Happy Thanksgiving.

Winter wolves! LOL. Kids are hilarious.
Heart surgery on a baby. That's just wrong, and makes me all upset and teary. I'll be praying for your cousin's whole family.
