Giving Thanks

If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.
-- Meister Eckhardt

I am giving thanks today for all the blessings I have been given. Being a mother is something I dreamed of my whole life, and when it finally happened, it turned out to be the most amazing, rewarding, unexpected, fun, crazy, thing I have ever experienced. Some days are more challenging than others, but with each day that passes, my love for these two little girls grows by leaps and bounds...isn't it amazing how love does that, how there is no limit?

I am thankful for my husband, who is there for me daily, loving me, and keeping me on the right track. I am grateful for my wonderful parents, my brothers and their families, my aunts, uncles and cousins near and far, and for all the family members I have been blessed with by marriage and through our church. You mean more to me than I could ever express.

Happy Thanksgiving!
