I am thankful…

I had a difficult week last week. Today I was reading one of the blogs that I read and she was making a list of all the things she is thankful for because she had had a difficult time too. So thanks to Nikol of The Thrifty Knitter, here is  my list.

  1. I am thankful for my wonderful son and that he is healthy and happy (well, happy for a 2-year-old!)
  2. I am thankful for my wonderful husband who is kind, caring and loving (even when I go all psycho crazy Doomsday on him).
  3. I am thankful to be employed in this difficult economic time.
  4. I am thankful for my creativity and my imagination.
  5. I am thankful that both of my parents are alive and well and that I get to see them on a regular basis.
  6. I am thankful that my in-laws are such wonderful people – I’ve heard horror stories from other people and I know that I am blessed.
  7. I am thankful to have a heated and air-conditioned home.

  9. I am thankful to have dreams.
  10. I am thankful for our wonderfully comfortable, pillow top, memory foam bed.

  12. I am thankful to live near a giant grocery store with produce that is beautifully waxed and arranged and carries all kinds of specialty items that they talk about on Food Network.
  13. I am thankful for Sprout (parents of toddlers – you understand!)
  14. I am thankful for NetFlix – too think of all the money I could have saved on videos and DVDs.

  16. I am thankful to be confident in myself.
