Being Thankful

Too many times, I focus on the things I don't have, rather than what I do have. This Thanksgiving I'm thankful for many things. In no particular order. . . 
  1. 2 beautiful, loving and healthy children
  2. My wonderful and adoring husband
  3. A house
  4. Our near 5.5 acres of land
  5. A reliable car that I love!
  6. A job, and therefore a paycheck and insurance
  7. Generous and loving parents
  8. Generous and loving in-laws
  9. My brother and sister
  10. My brother-in-law and sister-in-law
  11. My friends, near and far
  12. Soccer
  13. Glee!
  14. Electricty and running water!
  15. Spring, Summer, Winter and Fall
  16. Lazy Sundays (and sleeping in)
  17. Chickens that are so generous with their eggs. Too generous maybe. Anyone need any eggs?
  18. Coca-Cola
  19. Living in a free country
  20. Music
  21. The internet that allows me to make silly lists like this and publish them for the world to see.
  22. College sports
  23. Victoria's Secret
  24. My children's artwork
  25. Sunflowers
  26. Literature
  27. Having a great boss and great people to work with
  28. My health
  29. An education
  30. sticky notes
I could go on and on, but I think 30 is a pretty respectable list. None of these things are perfect, but I love having them in my life none the less.


And remember to be thankful for all that you do have!
