I'm thinking about being thankful tonight. I've seen people on Facebook posting one thing every day that they are thankful for. And while it's still over a week until Thanksgiving, I'm going to do my thankful list now.
~I am thankful that this year is almost over! It's been a terrible year for many reasons. Can't wait until 2010 and this year is all behind me.
~I am thankful for neighbors that watch my children so that I can go to the store by myself.
~I am thankful for rubber gloves. Without them I would never do dishes or clean a bathroom.
~I am thankful for the Internet. Specifically Skype. I get to talk to my husband up to 2 times a day, and I get to see him while I talk to him. And my kids get to see their dad. Can't beat that.
~I am thankful for the basics. Hot and cold running water, toilets that work, electricity, heat, a home, food, and vehicles that work.
~I am thankful for the military and what it has done for our family. It has made us financially stable, given us many good friends, and amazing experiences.
~I am thankful that I'm a member of the LDS church.
~I am thankful that I can bear children.
~I am thankful that I can call up any of my brothers and sisters and have a good conversation with any of them.
~I am thankful for all these modern conveniences like digital cameras, cell phones, computers, external hard drives, DVD players, DVR's, and TV's.
~I am thankful for Facebook. While sometimes it seems like a black hole that I get sucked into, I have found old friends that I otherwise never would have heard from again.
~I am thankful for my kids.
~I am thankful for friends that are still my friends no matter if we live next door, or 2500 miles away, or are on the other side of an ocean.
~I am thankful for good chocolate. And for my brother who is sending me good chocolate and a friend that is sending me good chocolate. You cannot have enough good chocolate.
~I am thankful for a garage so that when we go to the car, we don't get soaking wet.
~I am thankful that my husband loves me and thinks that I look good even when I just wake up in the morning.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I hope you're able to spend it with family or good friends where ever you are.
