Thankful Thursday -- Thanksgiving Edition

I'm already feeling a little overwhelmed this morning with all that I have to be thankful for. It's just after 8 and I've had my eyes well up with tears at least twice already {and I got to sleep in until almost 7:30, amazingly!}. My life is so filled with blessings!

Today I am thankful for my husband, my kids, salvation, sunshine, friends, Caribou, family, good conversation, a godly heritage for our kids, life, laughter, clean water, music, haribo gummi bears, hot showers, our dishwasher, love, leaves, grace, my home, the world, health, meaningful work, my mom, health insurance, books, massages, hope, our church, my favorite blanket, struggles, friendship, our van, online shopping, food, wooly socks, creativity, teachers, nice weather, pizza, God's love for me, autumn, joy, MOPS, my community, each new day, home, good examples, babies, beautiful weather, the Y, blessings, hobbies, antibiotics, my power sander, a cut up 2x10, projects, my bed, abilities, my kids love for each other, my washing machine, my life and so, so, so much more. This is only a hint of all that I have to be thankful for.

O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever {Psalm 30.12b}
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His love endures forever. {Psalm 136.1}
Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. {Psalm 100. 4-5}
Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift! {II Corinthians 9.15}

There is a great post on thanks here if you've got a minute.
This video on the spirit of thankfulness was a blessing to me this morning {even though it's put out by the Mormon church and I'm not the least bit Mormon, it's quite wonderful and worth the less than 5 minutes invested in watching it}

So, what are you thankful for?
