today is the day of eating turkeys and watching football and getting together with your relatives to pack on a few extra pounds that, let’s face it, we totally won’t regret in the morning. at least, me and the little bebe inside me don’t regret a single thing.

today was also the day i finally went to thanksgiving with the fiancee’s side of the family. and oh man do i love them. there were children, children everywhere. food. football. card games that got way too intense. there were baby bumps with the other lovely lady in the family who is all preggers right now too { we quite enjoy ourselves }. and there was food.

so i am stuffffffed with not only amaaazing food today { and like super extreme excitement for little baby beck on the way, and also hoping that this little one is a boy, but crossing my fingers we don’t have all. boys. forever. it’s kinda a beck tradition. and oh man i don’t think i can handle a houseful of boys. but, seriously people say that all the time. and survive. so. }, but i am also filled to the brim with thankfulness.

thankfulness for love and family and support. and for encouragement when life gets just too darn stupid for any human to deal with on their own. thankfulness for warm food and a warm home and cozy scarves. today i am thankful for being home, for being in a place i adore, the place i grew up in. thankful for a Lord and Savior who, in His last moments of hanging on a cross for the entirety of the world’s sins, had my name on His lips, and died so that in turn i could love. thankful for unconditional love. thankful for new life, and for clean slates, and for baby fingers and toes and noses.

and more than anything, thankful for a man who loves me more than life. for a boy that i had a crush on in junior high who turned into a man, like overnight. before my very eyes. a man that was my best friend through high school and decided he wanted to stick around for the long haul. i’m thankful for a man who is a provider by nature, and a man of the Lord. a man who knows what family is. a man who i know, for certain, will never leave my side and will love me through any. circumstance. i am thankful for a man who once gave me butterflies in my tummy, that now have turned into little tiny feet.

i am so thankful for you, love of my life.

what are you thank { full } for?

xoxo.
