so thankful.

I'm taking the day off tomorrow to spend time with my husband & our family,
so I'm posting some things I'm thankful for early...

Oh, and be sure to stop by on Friday!
I'll be sharing some great handmade Black Friday deals
that you won't want to miss.

{our leaves for my in-laws' thankful tree}

I have SO much to be thankful for.
I really, really do.

I'm thankful that my Father's grace is all-sufficient,
no matter how many times I mess up.

I'm thankful for my wonderful, amazing husband.
I'm thankful that this year he is my husband, not just my boyfriend.
I'm thankful for how hard he works.
That he helps me out in so many ways.
That he makes me a better version of me.
That he loves me through all my craziness.

I'm thankful for my family {which is now a lot bigger!}.
I'm thankful for the way my parents raised me,
even though I didn't always agree with them.
I'm thankful for my 4 little sisters.
I'm thankful that I have great in-laws.
For my friendship with my sisters-in-law.
For my sweet nieces & nephews.

I'm thankful that my husband fully supports me in
being a stay-at-home wife {and someday, mother!}.
Thankful that I can serve him by taking care of our home.
That it gives me time to pursue all my various projects.
That he doesn't say anything when he comes home to a crazy crafting mess...

I'm thankful for my husband's job.
That even in all the crazy changes,
God has been faithful & provided so much for us.
I'm thankful for our cozy home.
Thankful for a place to call our own.

I'm thankful for the ability to create.
For my hands & the things they can do with fabric, hot glue, etc.
For my sewing machine.
Thankful for my little shop, Petunia Blooms.
For color, needles & thread, crocheting, and more.

I'm thankful for music.
Thankful for the years of piano lessons I've had.
Thankful that it's something I can use in my church.
Thankful for all the music I can listen to on Pandora.
For all the inspiration music holds.

I'm thankful for good books.
Thankful that my mom taught me to love reading,
all those years ago.
Thankful for libraries & book stores.
Thankful for all the things I've learned just through reading.

I'm thankful for my little corner of the blog world.
Thankful for the lovely ladies I've "met" through blogging.
Thankful for your encouragement, dear readers.

I'm thankful to be me.
For this wonderful life I've been given.
For finding joy in the everyday.

So much to be thankful for,
and not just on Thanksgiving. :)

What are you thankful for today?

New reader from Runs with Scissors. I love the idea of the leaves on a thankful tree. That is such a wonderful idea! I may have to start doing that as my son gets older.
