Thankfulness & God's Faithfulness

I'm so very thankful for this year.  God has always been so faithful to me.  He's protected me, loved me, and given my joy in hard times.  I remember this time last year, I did not want to celebrate any Holidays.  I did not want to celebrate Thanksgiving or Christmas.  I had a heart that wasn't ready to move on or let go.  I had a stubborn heart, one that wasn't willing to listen or heal.  I had a broken heart, one that was not allowing me to be thankful for yet another year.  Even then God provided ways for me to heal and the space I needed, in providing opportunities to stay home for Thanksgiving and to be traveling all through Christmas and New Years.  God was so good to me.  Today I look back and think of just how far God has taken me.  I'm thankful He protected me from a very bad situation and gave me healing in that.  I'm thankful He took me far away from two really hard circumstances and allowed me to start over.  I look back over this last year and the h

It was a fun day!  Even though Owen ended up with a cold and we weren't able to do what my mom first planned to do. Instead we went through a few model homes, had lunch, went to the beach, had pizza for dinner, came home to watch Belle (the best movie in the world, by the way) and had ice-cream cake for dessert. 
But the biggest blessing of all was/is my mom on such a day and everyday!  The Lord has blessed our family very much with her!
