My Thanksgiving Post

But is going to come out in a long time. And I am so excited and everyone in my family"

Why I am thankful this year:

I am especially grateful for bodies. I don’t care what shape mine is in, I am grateful for a body to enjoy earthy experiences.

I am so thankful I have the amazing mantle as Mother of my family and thankful my hands can still serve my children and husband. I am indeed grateful for the insight I was given during some of the hardest times of my life. Those insights, though hard, have given me the strength I need daily, to remind me of what is most important.

Of course I am sooooooooo grateful for a new baby in the spring. The Lord loves me. That is evident.

I am thankful for the rare privilege I have been given to have an opportunity for a platform through

media and other sources to share what I believe.
