30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 16

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 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.

Happy Veteran’s Day!

Happy Veteran’s Day to all who have served! I am proud to be an Army wife, and my dad and both of my grandpas also served in the military. Thank you to all of our friends who served and/or are serving as well!! Though we should be grateful every day for our freedoms secured by our vets, take time today to shake a hand or buy a meal or do something to say thanks in a big way. They’re more than worth it–  (Photo credit Marko Marcello) ©Copyright Meredith Shafer 2015

Almost forgot to post today’s gratefulness but better late than never…

I am so grateful for the big open skies and the gifts of beauty in them. The sunrises, sunsets and daily skies around here are something to behold-

30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 6

My heart is full of gratitude for our Service Dog, Charlie. She is my reinforcement so I’m not alone in helping Mr. Wonderful with the PTSD. I’m pretty sure she’s a guardian angel as well, already saving Mr. Wonderful from a severe asthma attack.

She not a pet–she’s a member of the family! I’m so happy she found us❤️

30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 5

I’m grateful that I live in a world where Fall happens, where there is pumpkin spice everything and where I get to wear boots and scarves!  

 
Thank you Fall for containing so many of my favorite things!

30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 4

I’m so grateful for my partner in this life. This man has promised to take care of me and this family and despite our daily battles with PTSD and traumatic brain injury, he still gets the job done. His quiet faith inspires me to keep going, no matter the circumstances. 
 This picture sums us up–he’s the steady-handed, eyes on the road anchor to my artsy fartsy fluttering about. I would be lost without this guy, my sweetheart, Mr. Wonderful.😍😘❤️❤️❤️❤️

30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 3

Today I’m grateful for the mess. 

I’m grateful that I’m blessed with so many kids my house is bursting at the seams with toys and clothes and dust bunnies.  
I’m grateful for the piles of papers that helped get Mr. Wonderful medically retired. And I’m grateful that even though we’re a hot mess as a family most of the time, we are loved by the One who brought us all together in the first place–
