30 Days of Thanksgiving: Days 23-25

I’m a little late but I’m grateful for
-my job: it’s so flexible I can manage (most days) the chaos of my traveling circus

-my home: it’s warm and cozy and despite the mess, it’s where my ❤️ is

Grateful for Sundays–church, family dinners, afternoon naps, snuggling in the nest with the baby. What a great start to my week!

  Thankful for creativity in any form, for the artists and musicians and the dreamers and the writers–life without creativity would be so blah…

I’m thankful for the now twelve year old. He’s the leader of my crazy pack, my not-so-little old man. My interesting, thoughtful, introspective super reader who has his head on straight. He’s sweet, still gives Mama hugs, and is climbing his way to the top of the sixth grade trombone pile. Grateful for this guy today❤️

30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 15

My parents. They raised three kids while working full time, instilled values, work ethic and helped mold our faith and character. And now as grandparents they are involved in my kids’ lives and are part of their fabric. 

They are both technically senior citizens, so can I just say they don’t look or act their ages?! I hope I can live a life as full of faith, service to others, and making the most of every day like they do. I know not everyone gets to have their parents around or in their lives or be close–this makes me even more grateful. Love and appreciate y’all so much!

30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 13 (a little bit late)

I’m grateful I live in a country where I have access to health care. And I’m grateful for my husband’s sacrifices in his military career that provide me and our family with insurance.

And for Netflix and my parents watching my kiddos while I recover. And Mr. Wonderful for making sure I got home safely and have been fed during my recovery.  

 I’m blessed beyond measure.

I’m grateful for Veteran’s Day so I can say thanks to my favorite vet! Thanks babe for your sacrifices, for your dedication to your country, for volunteering to do things and go places most of us won’t.  (Photo credit Meredith Shafer 2015) ©Copyright Meresith Shafer 2015

30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 10

I’m late to the party as usual–yesterday was World Adoption Day. 
I’m so grateful for the way my family tree was knit together through time and countries and paperwork and grace.
Support local families who adopt/foster, consider it for your own family, educate or donate. We can all make a difference; no child should have to be without a family.

This little sweetheart is my girl reinforcement in our boy-filled home, my sparkly girly girl one minute and tougher than nails tomboy the next. 
 Little Sister is a mover and a shaker already–watch out world!
