I'm Grateful For...

**My Faith, and the love of God, and the Hope that comes from that Faith
**My Husband, he's hilarious (in case I haven't mentioned that before), but he's also the kindest, most considerate, supportive person I know and will go out of his way for anyone that he loves! I am blessed to have him.
**My Sister. I know some people aren't super duper close to their siblings, but mine is top notch and I don't know what I'd do without her. She is supportive, fun, funny, and lets me be me and loves me anyway!
**My Parents, both of my parents are amazing and have supported me in all that I've ever wanted to do. I believe in me because they believed in me and taught me to do the same! They go out of their way for me, my sister, and our husbands, and it's a blessing to have people who will give so much of themselves for others without asking anything in return!
**My Pets, yep, my pets because they love me unconditionally and provide me with unlimitied hours of entertainment. They are all pretty good snugglers too! :)
**My Friends. I am blessed with some of the best friends in the entire world. I think that maybe I'm using up someone else's friend blessings because I have so many. To have people that call me, email me, text me, visit me, and take an interest in my life and show true concern about me is a blessing beyond words and I am very very grateful. I shall not list them or it would take forever and it might sound like I'm bragging, but I just wanted to say I am very grateful for each of you!
**ICEEs and Candy, yep, I said it! I love these things and I'm grateful that they were invented, as a good cold ICEE or the perfect candy can put a smile upon my face!
**Football season, LSU and the Saints in particular. This is good, clean, American entertainment at its best! Bring on the Fight songs, the chants, and the touchdowns baby!!!

Just a little list for today! What are you grateful for? Make a post


  1. I'm grateful for you, my kindred spirit! And did I mention I love ICEES :) Sending you love and praying that you have a great weekend!

    Love to you and baby dust too :)


  2. Sending you Hugs! I'm grateful for you! I like ICEES but i LOOOOOOVE Candy;o)

  3. I'm grateful for your amazing outlook! (and also for the icees!) Thinking of you and know too that you will ALWAYS remember...

  4. I second all of those things... especially the LSU & Saints football part. =) Sending hugs your way!

  5. My list would be very similar (although I'd pick Slurpees and the Hokies)--especially the candy part!! (Sad, huh? In fact, I think I need some sour skittles right now!)

    It really is nice when God puts our blessings on our heart so we can remember His faithfulness...hard to remind ourselves of sometimes, so definitely worth taking note!!!

  6. How wonderful your life is! I agree with football, and being a Louisiana girl myself, I love the same teams. Just the Saints preseason game got me really excitied! I also associate football with cooler weather, and I will be very thankful for that too! I hope you have an amazing weekend!
