Just got home from lectureship and squeaking in on the gridblog. I need to take the time to be thankful. Here it goes...

I am thankful I got to have supper with my parents tonight. I am sure their steady faith has been the greatest influence in my life. I am thankful for my husband who can always make me laugh. I am thankful Kellen has a father who loves him so much. I am thankful that Kellen has fun cousins who are excited to see him... I know he will have great memories of fun with cousins, as many of my childhood memories are with my cousins. God has blessed me with so many people around me that provide support, encouragmnet, inspiration, thoughtfulness,...

I am thankful that I do not struggle with drug addictions that muck up my life. It hurt to see these problems today among people that I know. I am thankful that God loves them and will not give up on them. I am thankful that God is there working even when I do not know what to do. I am thankful God works on me in ways I don't understand despite my getting in the way and avoiding the growing too often.

I am thankful for new life. Linaya Grace Taylor. New babies are absolute miracles. Each and every one. I am thankful for the amazing things God teaches us through the little ones. I am thankful I more fully understand the depth of love when I look at Kellen...which helps me to understand God's love just a little bit more.

I am thankful for our mom's groups that connect me in our community and make my frustrations validated and make me feel normal. I am thankful for spinning class and getting out of the house.

Now that I have started, it is hard to stop. I am thankful for so much. I am also thankful for a warm, comfy bed when I am exhausted.

Hey Janet! Your blog is great; I like keeping up with the Muirhead gang!
I am thankful for your family too- steady faithfulness was definitely a good description.
Happy Thanksgiving from Hong Kong!
