30 and Thankful!!


I must admit I have felt a little.... well odd about turning 30. I'm not upset about getting older or anything like that, I am excited for each new year and what it is bringing... but I also really enjoyed saying I was in my 20's, there is something fun about being 20! Of course today I woke up as 30 and feel exactly the same! LOL... Life is fun, sweet, exciting, adventurous, full, and so much more!  So to embark on this new decade I want to express thankfulness!

30 thankful things:
1. My husband (man he's a hottie)
2. This life God has blessed me with
3. How God has changed me and continues to grow me
4. My sweet little family (I love being a momma)
5. Our bigger family.. so much love and support around us
6. The sweet people I get to call friends 
7. Our cute little house here in Manhattan KS
8. The adventures we have been blessed with
9. The pain in life that has brought beauty
10. Answered Prayers
11. And unanswered Prayers
12. Being Crafty (I love creating something)
13. Cooking
14. Good Restaurants (from a food snob)
15. Running (love hate relationship)
16. A good school for the kids (such a blessing)
17. This crazy adoption process (did I mention crazy)

30. A quiet moment and a good book 


There it is... my 30 thankful things, life is too good to not be thankful!  It doesn't mean that everything is perfect, but it means that by choosing thankfulness we see the blessings, the good stuff, and the other stuff fades away!  Choose thankfulness and therefore choose JOY!
