My Thankful List

Happy Thanksgiving!
As I reflect back on this past year, wow I must say that it's been the most trying year we have had in many ways! It's can be easy to look at all of the problems and get depressed and discouraged. Yes, we've done some of that, but we are moving forward. However, it could have been worse and I realize we have a lot to be thankful for. So, today here is my thankful list. It's a great reminder to me to count my blessings. I'm thankful for:
  • Being married to my best friend and wonderful husband.
  • Four incredibly smart, strong -willed boys (wouldn't trade them for anything)
  • Thankful that wonderful husband has a job. He lost his job a few weeks ago and thanks to some wonderful connections he was able to get another one quickly.
  • A nice extended family network.
  • Great friends that keep us grounded are are always there to lift, encourage and share good times.
  • Thankful that the house we bought and then couldn't sell our old house (now a vacation rental) is getting some nice ski traffic. This is a big help financially right now.
  • Thankful we are getting wiser (aka don't buy another home until you sell the old one first.)
  • Thankful that wonderful husband's two knee surgeries this year were a success and that he is no longer in pain. :)
  • Thankful for my belief and faith in God. Don't know what other's do without it. God is amazing and I have blessed beyond measure!

I have so many more things to be thankful for, but wanted to remind myself of some of the big ones!
