Thankful Thursday!


I am finally joining in! My friend Jenny always participates and I have SO much to be thankful for… I wanted to share it today! I think no matter what season we are in we can each count to 10 things that we are thankful for. I will list 5 today to keep it brief ;)

1. Life! I am thankful that I have a life to live and that each day is a NEW day! And I praise God that HIS mercies are new EVERY morning!

2. Photography. Even though this October is crazy with photo shoots, I love and am thankful that I can bless others. I have about 20 shoots in this short month … :) Crunch time with the weather!

3. The more realistic possibility of a puppy! We are moving forward and in contact with a few breeders! :) We are planning to have our new addition by November 1st!!! So exciting!

4. FRIENDS! Tonight we have a triple date with some of our young married friends. I am so excited! The men are excited to watch our MN Twins… us girls are excited to chat. Can’t wait to see you Chana+Zach & Grant+Jodi!

5. My husband! Even when I am overwhelmed and overworked, he still loves me and is eager to help!

Found you at ifellowship, but I also do TOAT posts! Excited for your puppy. I just lost my older dog in Feb and haven't had the heart for a new puppy yet--but the kids sure want one!
