30 Things I am Thankful for

I have noticed that during the month of November, my friends on Facebook will post one thing each day that they are thankful for. I decided to do it all at once!

1- Thankful for being a child of God! I don’t have to serve God, but I choose to! He loves me unconditionally and forgives me daily for all my sins!  I strive everyday to serve him, love others and show his love.

2- My husband, Ryan. We are perfect together! I prayed very hard to God and asked him to send the right guy to me and he definitely gave me a winner. I love you!
