Butter, peanut butter, and homemade pickle slices was one of my favorites. Don’t judge if you haven’t tried it! It was amazing!

So how can I not try to express my thankfulness to God? So here we go!

1. I am thankful for my mom. She has a way of getting me going until we’re both laughing so hard that we are crying and can’t catch our breath.
