My Thankful Thirty

November is generally a time when I reflect on my life and give thanks for the many blessings I have been given. For the next 30 days I am making it my goal to post what I am thankful for. If you are also doing something similar to this, or want to give it a shot, I would love to read what you are thankful for. Please link up at the bottom of this post and share with all of my readers and I.


November 1st:
Today I am thankful for my new job of being a stay at home Mama. My daughter was born February 12, 2009 and since the very first second I laid eyes on her I have wanted to be a stay at home mom. Last week my dream became a reality. I put in my notice with the State of Oregon and said goodbye to my job of 6 years to start a new adventure.

The start of our new adventure!

  1. My daughter is just a day younger than yours! I am very grateful for my children as well...and I am also grateful for the ability to be a SAHM!

    1. That is awesome that our daughters were born only a day apart. This is such a fun age with Amelia! I enjoy every second of it. Do you have other children? What challenges, if any, have you run across as a stay at home mama?
