Homeschool Memoirs: #15 A Thankful Heart


THEME

This week, you guessed it, is going to be about having a thankful heart! Yes, of course, we should always be thankful for everything we’re blessed with, but it’s not too often we actually sit and ponder what. This week please join me in writing 27 things you’re thankful (There’s got to be at least 27 things!). I picked 27 because this year Thanksgiving is on the 27th of November.


1. My husband Robby; we've had a rough couple of years...and I'm very thankful we survived it - together.

2. my sweet daughter Gracie

3. my adorable son Matthew

4. My parents, they are amazing and have helped us out greatly this year.

5. The medical care I received this year while pregnant.

6. God for always being there to guide me and get me through.
