Thankful Thursday

Happy Birthday Mrs. Cheri!

Today, we're thankful for David's mom, Cheri! It's her birthday and we love her!
She's the opposite of any "mother-in-law" stigma out there, being full of love, kindness, and joy (and the rest of the fruits of the spirit). I got lucky having her as a mother-in-law, and David's been blessed by her his whole life!

I'm also thankful for a husband who excitedly takes control of our finances! (If you know me, you know "excited" and "finances" would never be in the same sentence for me... unless "lottery" was also in that sentence). He cornered me into a "family budget meeting" last night. Although we are just a family of two (for the next few years, at least...), it makes me feel so cared for, protected, and loved to have a husband who is stepping into the biblical role husbands have as head of the household! AND, I hate money issues - talking about money, budgeting, etc. so I'm glad to know I can trust him to figure it all out - and just tell me when and what to to pay :) 
We decided last night to get on a strict budget to knock out my student loans in the next few years. I'm thankful for David's faith, that we CAN do this, when it seems like a mountain to me. 

On the coat tails of that blessing, I'm thankful that we have also been blessed to live a very comfortable lifestyle financially, due to both having full time jobs, and both doing work on the side. Thankful that we don't have to worry about putting food on the table and paying rent. 

I'm thankful for the upcoming weekend...we're taking a mini-adventure to Fountain Inn and Greenville to celebrate some great friends' wedding! So excited to spend some quality time together!


  1. Hope y'all have a great weekend! Enjoy your quality time together... So precious!
