3- On a more serious note, I am so THANKFUL for a God that is with us during our storms. We are all going to meet hard times. Only those of use that trust in Jesus will have Him with us in our time of trouble. While He never promised smooth sailing He does promise a safe journey. He will see us through our hardships. Sometimes we think that we can do it on our own and God will let us reach our point of desperation and have us cry out to Him. But He is always there with us. Guiding us and keeping watch. I am so thankful that I am a child of God and that He is the ultimate father when it comes to taking care of His children.

2- Vacation. This is where I will be on December 26th. I plan on living a mess at my house, packing all the great books and movies I plan on getting for Christmas, grabbing Hubs and head to the beach. We always spend the week after Christmas at the beach with the in-laws and it is so nice to relax before coming back and doing our 2nd Christmas with Hub's family in his hometown. Of course with it being December I won't be on the beach reading :( but I will manage.
Can you believe that it is only 9 days until Christmas?!?! I am so excited as this will be the first year that we are hosting it at our house. I am not excited about cooking our first turkey though. We have no idea. If anyone has any recipes or suggestions please send them my way. Okay, on to the what I am thankful for this week.
1- I am thankful for this little guy. If you have never tried the Chocolate Chip Coconut cookies made by Keebler then you are missing out. They are so good. And yes, by the way I am still on my diet. In fact I have even lost 7 lbs. (Yeah!) I only ate 2 of the cookies yesterday during the luncheon that my school provides everyday this week. Hmmm, maybe there will be some more today. I better go check.
