Hi my beautiful (or handsome) readers!
It’s Annette from Tips From a Typical Mom. Autumn is here. Crisp morning and evening air. Bright, beautiful colors are speckling the mountains out my window. Apple Cider is in the fridge. Pumpkin cookies are on the counter and I’m sitting here absolutely enjoining every second of it. I think Autumn must be my favorite season. Partly because I HATE being hot, and summer is like torture to me, but mostly because I know that Thanksgiving and Christmas are creeping closer. My two favorite holidays.
I love Thanksgiving. Having a time of the year where we really focus on what we are thankful for has really helped me realize how blessed I am. I have so many things to be thankful to God for. He has sent me 5 beautiful, healthy children. They are all miracles in my eyes. I have a great husband that supports me and tells me that he loves me every day. I come from a great family and have great in-laws. I live in one of the most beautiful areas on earth. I get to sit out in the fresh air and watch my kids play soccer and cheer. I teach the cutest kids in my preschool class. I am so happy and blessed to have a wonderful hobby as a photographer and digital designer. Of course, my life is NOT perfect. But for now, this is what I’m focusing on. I know there are others in this world who are not as fortunate as I. But we all can have something to be thankful for. We can all find something in our lives that we know comes from God. He loves us all and wants to bless us.
I know Thanksgiving is still a while away, but I wanted to get this printable done so I could display it in my home as soon as possible. Who says it has to be a “Thanksgiving” printable? It’s perfect for the whole fall season.
