Happy Thanksgiving!! Today my husband, sister, mother-in-law and I are gathering together to eat what I hope will be a delicious Thanksgiving meal! Since it’s my first one I can only hope things turned out alright! Since it’s Thanksgiving, I thought I would take the time to post a list of the things I’m thankful for. This is by no means all-inclusive, it’s simply what I thought of off the top of my head! I am sure there are many many more things to be thankful for!
1. My job. I’m SO thankful that I am finally employed. Having the extra paycheck will make a huge difference in paying off our debts.
2. My family. Both extended and immediate. They are all wonderful and I’m so lucky to have them.
3. Our health. Currently everyone in our family is healthy. I’m not talking colds, I’m talking big things like cancer. We are all healthy and happy and I’m incredibly thankful for that.
4. My kitties. They seriously make me laugh every day with their antics! And I love when they cuddle up and sleep with us!
5. Our house. We are lucky not only to have a roof over our heads, but to own that roof as well. It’s been a blessed year for us.
6. My husband. As we approach our one year anniversary I’m so thankful that we met each other and got married!
7. My marriage. Everyone says the first year’s the hardest. Well, it’s been tough, but we’ve made it through.
8. Snow! Yes, even snow because it is so beautiful!
9. Friends who pimp out my Mary Kay business. I’ve had several new orders lately which has been awesome!
10. Our local thrift store. They have provided me with several Christmas gifts!
11. Freecycle, without which we wouldn’t have 2 couches and a Christmas gift for my mom!
12. Craigslist, without which we wouldn’t have our coffee table and numerous other things I’ve bought (and sold!) for less than their retail price.
13. Oatmeal. It is delicious and yummy and warming on a cool winter morning!
14. A garage, where my car is parked safe and sound and free of snow and ice!
How about you? What are you thankful for this year?
