I am so thankful for so much in my life. I have an awesome husband, amazing kids, i love my job... you know.. if I keep going, this will be one of those blogs you never want to read because I will start to make it sound like hard things never hit us.. HOWEVER.. in lieu of the holiday this Thursday, I should put on "paper" (or at least this generation's equivalent of) some of the things I am thankful for.

I am thankful for a God and Savior who loves me despite the awful person I can be.
I am thankful for a husband who sees eye to eye with me on most everything but at the same time we are very different and it seems to complement our relationship.

I am thankful for two healthy baby boys who I never knew would exist and now can't imagine my life without. I love you, James and Mason!

I am thankful for all of my family in Boston, Macon, Jackson, Dallas, the Delta, Birmingham
I am thankful for Birmingham.. you have been a great home so far and a very nice city (sans bankruptcy, Jeffco, thanks)
I am thankful for some amazing friends who have been such a building, sharpening tool in my life. I am thankful for tradition.. I love it
I am thankful for my college.

Okay.. I'll stop there.

Mason is almost 12 weeks old.. Man, he is chunking up!! He was 13 pounds at his two month appointment (though, it was two weeks late).. Anyway, may God bless you for many many things to be thankful for this season.. even in pain if that is where you are.. Without pain, one never truly understands joy. If you do not know darkness, how can you ever appreciate the light? Someone call me master of theology :) ha.

Love ya'll,

Melissa and the rest of the crew
