30 Days of Thanksgiving

Yes, I realize it's November 3rd and I'm late starting this month of thanks, but better late than never!

#1 - I am thankful for my parents.  The older I get, the more I realize how blessed I am to have the parents I have, but this has never been more clear to me than over the past 6 months since the passing of my dad.  I'm sorry to say I don't think I ever got the chance to tell him how lucky I was to have him...I'll try to not make that mistake with my mom. 

#2 - I am thankful for salvation.  Who am I to deserve the love of my Lord and Savior?  His grace and mercy are abundant and I am in need of it EVERY SINGLE DAY.

#3 - I am thankful for my brother, Matt.  He has been a confidant and friend for many years, but he is more than that.  I'm thankful he found a wonderful wife, Kristi and that they have 2 wonderful daughters, Maya and Olivia.  Such JOY!  Thank you Matt for being an example of what a husband and father should be.
