Thanksgiving 2011 {being thankful}

This month got a bit crazy and I didn't get to do a weekly post of thankful on paper. So I am going to list the many things I am thankful for this year:
God has blessed us with so much this year:

We moved into a bigger house closer to our friends.

 Scott advanced to First Class and then was selected for Officer Candidate School and will be commissioned as a Naval Officer next year!

We were awarded the Navy Family of the Year award and went to Washington DC.

 I was able to quit my job this year and pursue a lot of my passions and dreams full time.

I was able to do a lot of traveling with friends and to see family: Chicago, Minnesota, Washington DC and Washington State.

There are many times when I get frustrated with the direction of our life and things not going according to my plan. I need to remind myself daily to be thankful for all of the amazing things we have and to know that everything happens in Gods time, not mine.

I am so thankful for a wonderful husband. I can't say it enough, he is the hardest working man I know. He spent the beginning of 2011, finishing up his bachelors degree, flying to Norfolk, VA every 4 weeks for a week of training for work, studied for a first class exam and completed his package for OCS. It is so amazing to say that everything he worked on at the beginning of the year was worth it. It is true, you get what you work for.  He is so supportive of my dreams and puts up with my crazy bipolar nutty personality, that in itself is a full time job!

I am so thankful for my family, they have all migrated to different places in the US but I always know they are there for us. I so looking forwarding to seeing everyone together in February for Colt's 1st birthday!

The last 4 months have been beyond words. My relationship with God is growing like crazy. I am so grateful to the women who started the bible study at our base chapel. I wake up every day reminding myself that I need to give everything to God and when I do I can see that he takes care of me.

I thankful for the amazing women I have met through blogging and etsy. It is so amazing to meet women who encourage, support and inspire me every day. They truly are a blessing!
