This week I’m getting ready for my parents and niece to arrive in Texas from New York. I was born in New York but raised in Texas. After my dad retired from the Air Force, they moved back my freshman year of college.
I stayed in Texas…you could blame this guy I met at a club, who I eventually married. :)
And we’ve always had this long distance type of family relationship.
I don’t recommend it.
I miss them terribly. Miss my sisters. Miss my nieces and nephew. Miss all of my family.
But this is the path given to me, and I will be thankful.
When we do get together, it is fast and furious. Trying to fit so many things in 7 days. But I am thankful for that time.
While I was putting together my fairy tale pumpkins this week…and trying not to decorate for Christmas before we sat down for Thanksgiving, my thoughts kept circling around everything I am thankful for.
My list could go on for days…my husband, my children, my home, my Bella, my 1999 Ford Expedition that has barely 100,000 miles on it and its still going strong. I’m thankful for friends who want to be in my life and want me in theirs.
I am thankfully full of blessings. I am content. I am full.
And these words whispered to my heart:
“From the fullness of His grace, we have received one blessing after another.” John 1:16
“The mouth speaks out of the fullness of the heart.” Matthew 12:34
This sweet pillow now rests on my bench:
I know someone is thinking I missed spelled thankful.
Thank Full. I am intentionally full of thanks.
I have the free template for you. I’ll show you how I created my pillow tomorrow using simple materials.
Download it HERE so you’ll be ready to rock ‘n’ roll.
Thank full for this time. Thank full for this season. Thank full for so many things.
Thank full for you reading my words.
