1} I'm thankful for humor. I am glad that I can laugh at myself, I can laugh with my husband and kids. My kids are hilarious and crack me up all the time. And I think laughter is one of the most important parts of a healthy marriage, or at least our marriage.
2} I'm thankful for desserts...such a simple thing that brings such joy.
the pie tree! such a beautiful sight
3} I'm thankful for where we live. I love living in FAR Northern California. It is truly one of the most beautiful places to live. Yesterday my in-laws, daughter and I were able to participate in the annual Turkey Trot on the gorgeous Sacramento River Trail. We have a wonderful trail system in Redding, with 100's of miles of paved trails just a few miles in all directions. We live minutes from 2 beautiful lakes, about an hour from 2 beautiful mountains, just a few hours from the ocean. Today we will go out and explore more of our 'home' with the family.
I love this place, it is a gift from God.
I'm a 35 year old wife and mother. I'm not a stay-at-home-mom, because I'm never home. I'm not a housewife, because I'm not married to my house. I MIGHT be a homemaker, because I try to make our house a home. I also have a side job where my husband is my boss, I'm the Early Childhood Director at our Church...yep, I sleep with my boss and have yet to get a raise! I'm a woman trying to be the best wife and mother I can be, and just don't get paid big $ to do it...
