thankful

man, i just realized i have sooo many things to be thankful for! so i wanted to give some glory to God for all he does for us on a daily basis:

*levi has been sleeping for 12 straight hours lately!! hallelujah. i don't want to get too excited or get my hopes up....but i hope this continues.
*we've all made it through cold and flu season without getting sick! woohoo! dean's come down with a little bit of a stuff nose lately, and levi has a snotty nose today, but i'm pretty sure it's the HORRIBLE pollen agrivating him. he's still sleeping well and acting ok. thank you Jesus!
*i'm sooo thankful for our awesome, rich, soil. that's right...i said SOIL! ha! we planted a garden this past weekend and i have high hopes of growing some yummy crops. squash, zucchini, cucumbers, eggplant, tomatos, butternut squash, watermelon, peppers, jalepenos, and more! plus an herb garden. i'm so excited to see things sprout that i can hardly stand it.
*good, God-loving, friends! we have sooo many amazing friends that i don't even know where to start. thank you all for being an integral part of our lives! levi is going to be so blessed to grow up with so many children his age that have parents who will raise them in Jesus-following homes. he has no idea how lucky he is
*i realized lately how blessed i am just to have been born in america. man how i take that for granted every day. i was born to a christian family who was free to raise me in the faith. i've always had everything i needed and wanted. we have cars, a house, clothes, toys, etc. we live in the top 1% of the world and i often find myself forgetting how fortunate i am. thank you Lord that i was born in this amazing country, even if i'm not too excited about some of the changes going on, You are still sovereign.
*my hubby's job. he has the flexibility to hang out and have coffee with me in the morning, come home for lunch (most days), and be home nights and weekends. his job is able to provide for us so that I can stay home with the little manfriend! thank you pinnacle!
*sooo thankful for my family! this includes my in-laws. everyone is so supportive of us, very generous and giving, and always spoiling Levi (which we love :)). we have so much love surrounding us every day!

ok...there's so much more i could type, but the turkey burger just woke up. so peace out peeps.

xoxo
