I am Thankful For...

Happy Thanksgiving.  We are off to my aunt's house in Massachusetts for Thanksgiving dinner.   Today I will share some things (in no particular order) that I am thankful for this year...

{1} I am thankful after many months of trying to conceive we finally got pregnant...and even though it didn't end up with the outcome we hoped and dreamed of I am thankful that my body allowed me to conceive... as I know others are not as fortunate.

{2} I am thankful for the awesome 12 year old daughter we do have who brings us so much joy and happiness.

{3} I am thankful for a roof over our heads, our jobs, a warm home, two cars that work, a great school for our daughter, food in our kitchen, clothes on our backs, and our friends and family.  Have we struggled this year? Of course.  We went from 2 incomes to 1 income + 1/4 income.  But our basic needs are met.

{4} I am thankful for the Internet... which allows me to work from home, shop from home, connect with friends and family, blog, and look up just about anything I need to know.

{5} I am thankful for my husband who gets up every morning and heads to work without complaining most mornings to make sure we have the things we need.

{6} I am thankful for all of the silly little things that bring me joy like reality TV shows, trips to Target, lunches at Panera, baking, making crafts, painting, and reading magazines.

Happy Thanksgiving!
