Today... I am extremely thankful for:
1. My wonderful, beautiful country, and all of the brave men that have fought over the years to protect a nation who's foundational principles were ingrained with goodness and guided by God. My country which, from it's infancy, was raised to be a democracy, lead by the people, protected by the people, and fought for the people.
2. The fact that I can't go even a night without my heart aching for my loves arms to be wrapped around me.
3. Ashton making me crack up everyday!!! Even right after a disagreement, he seems to always be able to lighten the situation and make me smile.
4. Going back to nature and making something from the harvest...for instance, today was home made apple sauce using apples we were given from a friends garden.
5. The sacrifices Ashton makes just so I can be happy...I am so lucky.
(sorry if most of these are about Ashton...but what can I say, he is pretty amazing)
