But I'm Thankful Too

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving (American Thanksgiving, that is, don't want to leave out you Canadians who already had yours!). I believe that everyday, we should all take a moment to think about what we're thankful for. I read something once that said we should be thankful for our pile of dirty laundry that needs to be washed because it means we have clothes and thankful for the weight we have gained, because it means we have food, etc. That is such a great way to think.

So, dear readers, some of the things that I am thankful for, both big and small:

  • that I found my faith in God a little over four years ago. If God is all you have, God is all you need.

  • my amazing husband. Read some of the reasons I love him here.

  • my family. Although we certainly have our flaws, there is lots of love there and to me that is most important.

  • my job. I complain a lot about working every weekend, but I am incredibly thankful that I am employed right now.

  • prescription sunglasses. I wear my sunglasses all.the.time. Even if it's cloudy- if they're not on my eyes, they're on my head. I feel weird and semi-naked when I don't have them.

I am thankful for many other things, but those are the ones that automatically came to my mind.

This will be the first year I have not had Thanksgiving with my mom. We are heading to the in laws. It will be different, but I am looking forward to spending the holiday with people that have taken me in and loved me as their own.

Happy Thanksgiving!

    Happy Thanksgiving my dear! <3

  2. Happy Thanksgiving! As always, I've been enjoying your blog. Have a great day!

  3. hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

  4. That's a nice list of things to be thankful for. We should probably be printing off these lists and keeping them in our purses to refer to on those days we are not so thankful.

    Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
