2.) New Friends. Since coming to Corpus Christi I have been blessed with being able to meet some really sweet ladies and I am so grateful that they have chosen to share their friendship with me. The young woman in the picture here is my friend Christina and I feel as though she has been an answer to prayers I've had. I admire her strength, her uplifting spirit, and how great a mother she is to her children. The fact that she is also a military wife(her husband is actually away with my husband at school) has been a blessing in itself, because it makes life a little easier to know you have someone to talk to, that knows exactly what you are going through.
3.) My Phone. This may seem a silly thing to be thankful for, but my reasoning for this is simple.It allows me to call my mom...my grandmother...my husband..my best friend...anyone dear to me... and ,even with miles in between us, have conversations that help us to stay vital parts of each other's lives. Who doesn't like that?!
5.)My Dear Husband. We've been through some very rocky times and almost called the whole thing off, but somehow we've stuck it out and I know I am so abundantly, overwhelmingly blessed to have done so. My dear husband is my best friend, my rock, my strength, the glue that holds me together, and an infinite number of inexpressible things more. I love how he makes me laugh even when I'm mad at him, how our dogs adore him and miss him so much that all I have to say is, " Daddy's home" to throw them into spasms of ecstasy, how he always holds my hand when we are walking together, how he's never called me a bad name or run me down to anyone, and mostly I love how he loves me. Is he perfect? No, but then show me another living human that is. I am beyond grateful and over-joyed that this man is my husband and I get to spend the rest of my life with him. What a blessing!
So, now that you know some of the things that I am most thankful for, would you care to share some of your own? Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
