40 Things I’m Thankful For…




1) My kids. They keep me grounded. They keep me laughing. They keep me crazy.

2) My husband. He’s always there. Always. Even when I drive him crazy and even when I don’t deserve him.

3) My home. We are incredibly blessed to live in such a beautiful house. It’s the people who live in it that make it a home.

4)Love. I don’t know where this world would be without love.

5) understanding. Those special people who just get me. They understand what I’m about.

6) forgiveness. Everyone has needed forgiveness at one point or another. It’s a lot harder to give it than receive it.

7) This blog. I love this blog. I love writing. It keeps me out of therapy. šŸ˜‚

8) family. Family is #1. When no one else is there your family will be.

9) God. He’s pulled me out of my darkest times.

10) Faithfulness. Loyalty, dedication we all need to know we’ve found that in someone.

11) My past. While I’m not proud of everything I’ve done, I’ve learned from everything I’ve done.

12) My present. I’m learning to love my life for what it is, not for what it could be or what I wanted it to be.

13) My future. I have so much to look forward to.

14) Everyone who has hurt me. They’ve taught me how to forgive. They’ve taught me that not everyone has the same heart as I do.

15) Everyone who has helped me. I would be a sad person without those people.

16) My parents. They created me and watched me grow.

17) Second chances. Because sometimes we don’t get it right the first time.

18) Third chances. Because sometimes we don’t get it right the second time.

19) Sweatpants. Because I live in them.

20) Mountain Dew. It’s my only source of nutrients somedays. Not really. I just love it. A lot.

21) Friends. Those people I love. The ones I laugh with. The ones I cry with.

22) Laughter. It’s the best medicine.

23) Tears. I’ve just recently learned that it’s okay to cry.
