Being Thankful

The Mom's group at our church has a 15 week challenged entitled "From Stressed to Blessed".  This week's challenge is to list 25 things I am thankful for and to try to add at least five things to that list daily.  So, here is my list:

1.  Drew who works so hard and loves us all so much
2.  Emma who is so helpful and loving
3.  Jonah who is crazy, loving, and fun
4.  Samuel who is a pickle, but I love him dearly
5.  Elena who is so sweet and a joy to watch learn something new each day
6.  My family not listed
7.  My friends near and far
8.  The recent cooler weather
9.  Hot chocolate...yum!
10.  Sweaters
11.  Hair color...could not survive without it
12.  My clean kitchen because nothing else is clean at the moment
13.  The smells of fall

25.  Ice cream and milkshakes
