In everything giving thanks-3

Continuing with a month's worth of thanksgiving, today I thank my God for the privilege of being a mom to four priority blessings. I want to specifically express my gratitude for my number four son (I plan to highlight my thanksgiving for each of my children in a post so I thought I'd go in reverse order since being fourth he is so often last)...

My baby isn't so much a baby anymore! He'll be turning ten next month and I can't hardly believe it! He and I are kindred spirits in that we are both true homebodies who would rather be home than anywhere else. He is, for the most part, laid back and easygoing (except when he's not). I am so grateful for his hugs and kisses which he still freely bestows and I thank God that He has granted me the blessing of being the mom to such a great kid...

  6. Do people say he looks like you or your husband? I've seen a picture recently of you with your hubby, and I think he looks like him.
