Thankful Thursday

{Joe snapped this shot in his tree stand on our land!}

I have so much to be grateful for and it's no joke that the more I focus on what we have, the happier I am.  It's easy to look around and have a million wants and get frustrated when all I think about is what we don't have...and then it usually spirals down and makes me grumpy.  So I've been trying very very hard to not think about what we don't have and focus on what we do.  Gratitude brings in more light, more riches, more abundant and radiant love---try it!

I'm thankful for...

...two healthy and strong children
...for both a little girl and a little boy.  I've always wanted one of each!
...a hardworking husband who can provide us with our lifestyle, especially for me to stay home.
...a man who really understands me, teaches me, and grows along side of me. sisters and so grateful my youngest has been given a second chance at life.
...warm green tea; soothes a scratchy throat! morning and night walks with our little Holly.
...a really comfortable bed to snuggle into each night.
...our really reliable babysitter who allows me some free time when I need her!
...avocados because they make clean eating SO much easier.
...girlfriends.  We may not get to talk and hangout as much as we used to, but when we do, my heart is so happy!
...for my mom to come visit again really soon!
...the preschool teachers Brooke has--they are old school and amazing and I adore them.
...books. I am so happy to have my mind travel places I never expected it to. grandma owl having a relationship with my daughter; that's pretty special. health.  I have a few annoyances, but overall I'd say I'm pretty healthy.
...this breakthrough with Crohn's Disease. Hopefully they'll have a cure soon.
...probiotics.  I am fairly certain they've helped Joe more than we even know. salt lamp. I swear I've been less anxious since I plugged one into our office.
...Fall.  The leaves are starting to turn and it's so pretty.
...our land! I cannot wait to build a house. 
...time and patience.  Sometimes you just need to wait things out. side hustles. It's so nice to make a little extra money on my own!
...firewood so we can make lots of cozy fires this Winter. & accessories to feel a little more put together even I when I'm not. life.  It's beautiful and messy and creative; full of love and happiness.
