I know for the month of November everyone will be doing posts about what they are thankful for. I don't have the attention span to do one for each day. I'm going to write in this post everything I am thankful for.

*I am thankful for my husband. He sacrifices his life to defend this amazing country we live in. He is a wonderful husband and provider. I am beyond blessed to have him and I wouldn't want to share my life with anyone else. 

* I am thankful for my Dad, Lisa (sister), Chris (BIL), Kylie (niece) and Grayson (nephew). I couldn't imagine my life without them. They are always there for me when I need them. They are the best!!

*I am thankful for my in-laws, Chris (MIL), Dwight (FIL), Justin (BIL), Erin (SIL). I am blessed to have married into such a great family.

*I am thankful for my sweet fur-babies, Emma and Fishy. They always brighten my days and make me smile.

*I am thankful for the opportunity to live in a free country. Others don't have that luxury and I do my best to not take it for granted.

*I am thankful for the Army. I am thankful that my husband has a steady paycheck and that we have a place to live.

*I am thankful for all the amazing blogger friends that I have made. You are all an inspiration!!!

*I am thankful that for the first 25 years of my life I had an extraordinary woman guiding me through life. I love you and miss you Mom.

*I am thankful for the heartache we have endured trying to have a family. I don't think I would be the person I am if I hadn't gone through it. I am thankful we get to keep trying because the result will be that much sweeter.

*I am thankful for my life. Through all the trials and tribulations I know that I am here for a reason.

What are you thankful for?

I hope you all have an amazing weekend!!!
