Thankfulness

So I’ve seen on the inter web people writing something they’re thankful for every day in November. I’m a little late joining the party, but I wanted to play too! Practicing and writing down things I’m thankful for is such a good exercise. My heart has been swelling with God’s goodness in this season and I so want to remember, remember.

November 1 – Thankful for a beautiful day to get a photo shoot done by Bryan’s super talented sister! ALSO so thankful for our first visit with our social worker and turning all our paperwork in!

November 2 – Thankful that the heightened stressful intensity of pre-home visit house prep and cleaning is over… it’s like an endorphin rush, which makes the stress almost worth it…almost :)

November 3 – Thankful for cinnamon rolls with my hubby, the most helpful adoption class yet and the patriotic honor of voting.

November 4 – Thankful for an amazing church service – for incredibly talented musicians and a wonderful sermon.

November 5 – Thankful for beautiful fall weather

November 6 -Thankful that my parents are so helpful and came over for 4 days this week to help me pick colors and paint the nursery! It looks great and we even successfully did a striped wall!

November 7 – Thankful my dear friend Curry is back from out of town and that we can sit under a blanket and catch up with cupcakes.

November 8 – Thankful that my hubby is back from a few days out of town! He doesn’t leave town often, but probably a couple times a year. A less than 3 day trip is no big deal… but I get renewed appreciation for having him home and how much be brightens my life when he’s here.

November 9 – Thankful for my first Starbucks red cup and enjoying coffee with a good friend and a relaxing night at home with Bryan, catching up on our favorite shows.

November 10 – Thankful for music that leads me to worship… been listening to How He Loves us by John Mark McMillan all week.

What are you thankful for?
