Thankful November: Week # 2 & 1/2

Caroline has her first cold... a nasty sinus infection and it has been awful around here this week. Not much sleep, lots of fussy moments when just nothing seems to do, and lots of snot! Yuck, I know. None of those things make me even the least bit thankful...

But, I do have lots of things to still be thankful for. Its all in the perspective :)

"Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter everyday epiphanies, those transcendent moments of awe that change forever how we experience life and the world." 
- Sarah Ban Breathnach 
Thankful for this girl's JOY! And her big milestones like pulling herself to standing! 
 Thankful for sweet cousins who love playing together. 
Thankful for Operation Christmas Child and the huge blessing that filling these shoeboxes are every year.
 Thankful for this man who is an amazing Daddy. And Thankful for the opportunity to go on a real grown-up people date with this man last weekend. It was so nice to go to dinner and a movie and just be us for a couple hours. 
Thankful for the HUGE honor it is to Vote in this country. That is about the only thankful thing I have to say about the election, but hey, I am thankful that I got to take my girl to the polls and vote for the candidate of my choosing. Thankful to be an American, and thankful that as much as I love my country, this is not my Kingdom, and my God is a BIG God. 
Thankful for this Bella and her snuggles. 
Thankful for a warm sunny Saturday to play outside {and eat leaves!} 
Thankful for 7 Months of being Mama.
