While I try to count my blessings every single day, it is especially nice to focus on all that I am thankful for throughout this holiday season.

I have been a little stressed lately thinking about our finances. But every time I send a bill or look at our checking account, I am reminded of the times where we had almost no money. Early in our marriage, we had a period of unemployment. It was a struggle getting food on the table. But I am thankful for that time. We are where we are because of that time. We work even harder now because we remember where we were.

So, for the tough times, I am grateful!


  1. Thank you for sharing how you are thankful in hard times. SO many times we are eager to be thankful for good times, but it is in the hard times that God helps us grow even more. :D

  2. I feel this same way and I am so suprised that when ever I think we will not have something happens and somehow we come through

  3. I totally agree we learn a lot more from the struggles than the easy times! Have a happy Thanksgiving!
