25 Thankful’s

So I am cheating again a little today.  My cousin tagged me on FB with 25 Thanful’s so I just thought I would share, since it is the month to be Thankful.  Although we should always be thankful for what we have!  Feel free to join in!
List 25 things you are thankful for.  Be creative, be sincere but have fun!

1.  My Heavenly Father

2.  My parents

3.  My hubby

4.  Ms. Maddie

5.  That I have the opportunity to stay home with her

6.  coffee

7. My wonderful friends (hmm..  friends should come before coffee but I think most my friends would understand )

8.  That even though I might complain about our carpet or linoleum in the house at least we have a roof over our head, a place to be so thankful to come home to.

9.  The rest of my family

10.  Our Church

11.  My camera to capture all of Maddie's silliness.

12.  My computer, helps keep me some what sane.

13.  That we live in a country where we can be free!

14.  I complain about this too but I love Oklahoma!  We put God first, family & friends tie most the time and our guns are right up there with them! And we love our country!

15.  That God sent His Son to die for us!  Even though we don't deserve it but He did it so we can be free and have eternal life!  The greatest gift ever!!

16.  That our prayers do get answered, not always in the way we want or in the time we want but always in His time and His way which is the best way.

17.  For my blogging friends that help me grow in my faith and help me face the normal everyday craziness!

18.  For grandparents that take Mad once a month so we can go out and have a real meal without a kid whining about something then not eating it or wanting ours!  A time just for us!

19.  That I obviously have enough to eat.  Smile with tongue out

20.  Mom's, Mother in law's and aunts that keep me supplied with material, scraps and even old clothes that I just cut up and use!  Thank you all for that!!

21.  My truck!  I love that thing even if I don't get to drive it that often.

22.  Chocolate Smile

24. That Maddie is always asking me to tell her about God and Jesus and always wanting to go to church.

25.  For the wonderful place that God gave us to live in.  He does beautiful work if you just take the time to stop and look at it!

sorry adding one more...
Hugs and kisses from Maddie and Shane!  And of course her laughter and the laughter of them playing together!

and I am also adding this hymn we sang on Sunday.  An oldie but goodie!
I'm also linking up with some great sites today!

What an awesome post!! I too often forget to really take the time to count my blessings. There is s song titled "Count Your Blessings".
In the song it say to "count your many blessings, name then one by one, count your many blessings see what God has done...." Wow, if I counted mine one by one, I wouldn't live long enough to finish the list!
