Month of Thanksgiving

I just this on Facebook and thought that you ladies might be interested in doing this for the month. What Are You Thankful For?


 


Day 1:  I am thankful that DH and I got through the storm and that our power was only out for 36 hours, and internet came back today.

I like the idea! I just don't like posting a whole lot of facebook. I think a thread for this is a great idea :) Thanks Becca!


Day 1: I am thankful for my health. I had a back spasm last Saturday -something that has NEVER happened to me before, and I could barely walk for a bit. I am so thankful I've never really been injured ever.

Day 2:  I am grateful that my family and friends (online as well) allow me to be who I am, even my faults.  They allow me to share my crazy stories or ideas, and encourage me to follow my dreams, even though sometimes that means my working more.  I would not be the person I am today without that support.

grr. late.


day 1- yesterday, i was thankful for (this is sooo shallow) the AMAZING pair of jeans i found, of which, every shirt i tried on with them, looked amazing. --- allow me to explain... i have an almost 2 year old, i havent bought a good pair of jeans since before i was pregnant bc i refused to spend alot of money on a size i was hoping i wouldnt always be. when i was going through my closet weeding out what i didnt want, i realized of the 9 pairs of jeans i own, only TWO are wear-able, and one of the two was questionable. im just not a size 25 any more :( after having my daughter, i was a 27/28 but have steadily been dropping weight, so one of DHs bday gifts to me, was a gift card to buy new jeans with. soooo i went last night. and was extremely excited that i fit into a 26 AND they looked good. haha, iv fit into that size, but they werent very flattering! so, i am thankful for that ego boost :) :) 


and today. -- less shallow..
day 2- i am thankful for the AMAZING little family i have. they are my rock and my everything. i am so greatful for everything that DH does for us and our family. i dont know where i would be with out him in my life.

DAY 2: I woke up in the middle of the night and saw my husband at that moment I felt a tingeling inside of me...I am just so thankful that we are together and that we get to go to bed together every single night. I am also thankful it's Friday lol My week has been a bit rough.

Day 3:  I am thankful that I have a job and while times are slow right now, I'm hoping that it will pick up and/or I can find another one that will help supplement income.  I am also very thankful that I work from home, which helps so much!

I'm a few days late - yesterday was an adventure!


 


Day 5:  Grateful that DH was allowed back to work and that they had not suffered any major damage to the building. We are going to pitch in this weekend (hopefully) to assist any of his coworkers who might need our help.


Day 6:  I am thankful that I live in a country that allows us to exercise our voices, no matter whom you voted for.  : )


Day 7:  I am extremely thankful for my Mom (even though she is no longer with us) for each and everything that she taught me while she was alive.  While this past year and especially the last few weeks have been extremely trying for my husband and I, I have tried to always keep hope that things would get better and that no matter how bad we have it, there is always others who have it worse off and that I need to be thankful for what I have, both good and bad.

I absolutely love reading all of these. @Rania-I can't believe that gas story, so crazy. What great families we all have!


Day2-Nov 2 is my Mom's birthday. I am so lucky to have a wonderful mother, who I am like more and more each day!


Day3-I am thankful to have a wonderful home to come home to each day.


Day4-I am thankful to be able to go on vacation. Even though DH and I don't make that much money, we seem to live sensibly and are still able to afford the occaisonal outing with our friends or ourselves 


Day5-I am thankful I have a job that I like. I hate it when DH is in a down mood because of work, and there is nothing I can do about it.


Day6-I am thankful about the election.


Day7- I'm thankful I am a very balanced person, especially after the election. I get that everybody has different view points, but there are some people who feel the need to bash the other side or what not, and I hate it. I am glad I am not that person (on either side of the spectrum).

Day 8:  I am extremely thankful today that we just found out that DH's work WILL be paying him for the entire week last week when they had no power and we had no power/internet.  It's such a blessing, I actually was in tears when he told me earlier.  : )

Day 9:  I am thankful for all of the amazing and wonderful friendships I have made here through PW. 


Day 10:  I am thankful that my hubby and I have been able to find ways to overcome the negatives that have been thrown at us and that we were able to spend some time yesterday assisting fellow hurricane victims. 


Day 11:  I am thankful to be blessed with the hunger for knowledge.  I had always been taught to approach each day with the open mind and heart to try and learn something new each day.  : )

Day 12:  I am extremely thankful that I have had the opportunity to reconnect with my Mom's side of the family and that we are planning to get together after the new year. 


Day 13: I am thankful to have a home that is safe after the storm, as I have been seeing so many people that I know who have lost so much after this superstorm.  The struggles that they are going through just for basic necessities just absolutely breaks my heart.

Day 14: I am thankful that we are given/find just exactly what we need. 


Day 15: I am sooooo thankful and honestly quite overwhelmed at this one...Eric just sent me a text to tell me that the company that he works for JUST each person at the company he works a $50.00 gift card for a local grocery store.  Now I don't have to worry how to pay for our turkey dinner.  I started busting out crying.  Through the heartache and chaos, there are truly amazing good people.  I am truly humbled.  : )

Day 16:  I am thankful that I was able to take most of the day off my MT job.  I really needed a break away from the lady I contract with.  I spent the whole day getting things done that I haven't had time to and was in my PJs all day.  : )

Totally behind on this....I need to set an alarm on my phone to do these each day!


Day 17:  I am thankful that DH and I were able to get all of our last-minute errands done and start going through our extra clothes and other items to donate to our fellow hurricane victims.  While running around, we saw so much more damage that happened in our area. 


Day 18:  I am thankful that we live in such an amazingly beautiful area of the country that offers many free activities for the entire family.  I also love the fact that you meet so many amazing people!
