A Sweet Thanksgiving-2012



When I was a little girl, I can remember my Grandpa singing the chorus to this old hymn.
And as we celebrated Thanksgiving here at our home yesterday, that ole familiar chorus was running through my mind over and over and over again!
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your blessings, see what God hath done!
Count your MANY blessings,

name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Oh y'all...
My heart is just so incredibly thankful this year and my blessings seem to be too numerous to even count.
Of course, having Addy-Kate HOME with us this year has made our Thanksgiving just THAT much sweeter.
Last year, we were only able to look at her little face placed in this frame at our Thanksgiving table.
 This year, we were able to actually kiss those sweet cheeks (which I had stared at for soooo long) 
AND
hug that precious little body!
Oh...God is sooooo GOOD!!!
They will celebrate your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of your righteousness.
Psalm 145:7

I'm sure having her home this year makes your heart at ease. Love all the pics, love your hair. I bought a wave iron for Sophia and LOVE how it looks when we do it. Also loving the green and gold!! :) I found myself looking around (our humble rental), and feeling so thankful. With all the tragedy going on in the world, I can't help but get overwhelmed when I think of our good life.
