Late Thanksgiving Post

When I was at the gym today (Yeay I made it) I started thinking I have so, so much to be thankful for. Both in a material sense and non-material sense. Even little things from my childhood. Yes, I have some childhood issues like everyone else, but Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to reflect on all the good things, don't you think? I think being a Thankful person (of which I have always been) serves a person well in life.

I am thankful that .....
I grew up in a small town. It's influenced who I am today.
That my parents ate dinner as a family, took us to church, exercised as a family, and went to the library.
That I spent loads of time in the outdoors and love it.

That my husband and I are both employeed.
For health insurance.
For a reliable car.
For heat and clean water.
Washer and dryer in my home.

For my husband of nearly 10 years that loves me a lot!
For my sweet baby girl that was a blessed miracle of the highest magnitude.

For crazy little things like Diet Coke, peanut butter, the internet, the TV show "LOST", sunny days, and long naps (as if).

That's it babe - you have to count your blessings. Even the little stuff like you said - a great song on the radio, a ham sandwich, it's all good.

Reminds me of the song from "White Christmas" to "Count Your Blessings." And a good idea too!
