Thankful Thursday



I am thankful for the weather today and tomorrow.  It's been in the 80's here in Northern CA, and we are ready for some big changes.  Rain is on the way!

After seeing all of the devastation on the East Coast after the big storms - I am thankful for my home, power, food, and warmth.  I can't imagine how tough these last weeks have been.

I am thankful the election is over.  I don't mind everyone having their own political opinions... I just want everyone to get along.  Arguing amongst ourselves won't change anything.

I am thankful for my energetic husband.  Every day with him is an adventure - and my love has grown so tremendously deep for this man.

I am thankful for my family.  My parents and sisters are going to Disneyland with out me this weekend and part of next week, and I will miss them - but I am thankful for the pictures they will send me of my nephews enjoying Mickey for the first time.

I am thankful for my BIL, Joe.  He has a kind heart and we've gone through some scary times with his health in the last few weeks, but he's on the mend.  I am more grateful to have him in my life than he will ever know.

I am thankful for my health and my health care coverage.  I definitely don't take it for granted!

And lastly, I am thankful for good friends.  I've been blessed to have some great ladies in my life who are genuinely amazing people.  :)

What are you thankful for?

I am so thankful the election is over too! I hated logging onto facebook and just see everyone arguing with each other.

I've also been thinking a lot about how thankful I am for my health. There are so many people struggling with health issues and I think a lot of healthy people take it for granted!
