To give thanks

I know we all have things to be thankful for, I thought I'd share a few of mine through photo's.  

I'm thankful that, after 22 years of marriage and after raising 3 children, my husband and I still love each other, enjoy each others company, and are still young enough to travel around and have a blast while we enjoy our new found freedom.

I'm thankful for my 3 beautiful daughters.  We sure have a lot of fun when we all get together and I'm thankful that my girls trust they can come to me for advice and trust me to do so.  I'm thankful for the bond all us hormonal women in this family are blessed to  have. 

I'm so thankful for our healthy grand daughter 'Nora Lee' who was born in May and has brought so much joy to our lives.

I'm especially thankful for our five furry kids...While I'll never have five at once again, I love these guys and gals so much.

I am thankful for each of these girls from House of Hope whom I have the priviledge to work with.  I believe in this ministry and it's purpose of helping troubled teen girls and their families reunite and mend the brokenness they've experienced.  It is the most humbling job I've ever had, and I'm thankful God would call me to serve here.

I'm thankful I have this little one every Wednesday for our own Grammy and Nora bonding time.  She's a breath of fresh air.

I'm super thankful for my blessed talent of hairstyling so that on special days such as my daughter's wedding, I can take her hair and mold it from the picture above, and turn it into beautiful bridal hair in the picture below. This talent has saved our family tons of money.  As well as, serve other's by volunteering my services in programs such House of Hope, photo shoots for Breast cancer awareness month and breast cancer survivors along with Locks of Love.

 

God has given me a lot to be thankful for...


I'd love to see what you're 'thankful for...' photo's too :).

That is fabulous!  It is great that your husband and yourself are young enough to enjoy your new found freedom!! I loved being a Nona at a young age, too.  I am surrounded by young women as well - very special.  Thank you for sharing your photos.  Happy Thanksgiving!!

You can not be old enough to have daughters that age, you don't look even 10 years older than they.

 Thank you.  My son and his family went to his wife's side of the family.  My oldest dd is not married to the father of her children anymore so her son Zane went to dinner at his dad's.  My youngest dd had to work so dh and I met my oldest dd and baby Marla at a restaurant.  Next year will be my side of the family's turn and we'll all go to my brothers.  Turned out good because it was very mild today so we put up our outside lights.  Tomorrow it will be cold so I'm glad we had time today to do it.  How was your thanksgiving?  Was all the girls there?

Here's a more recent picture of Marla...
