I am thankful

This time of year always makes me reflect on the blessings that I have in my life.  I love the holiday season…the family time, the sense of community and good will.  Today, I am thankful for:

 

-Tony: I am thankful to have a husband who chooses hard work even if there is an easier path to take because he knows that some of the more important things in life are things you have to work for.  He is willing to be uncomfortable in the short term to provide a better life for us.  I am thankful that this is not a combat deployment, and that he is safer than previous deployments.

 

-Family: I am grateful for the opportunity to spend 10 days with my sister and her family in October.  I am thankful for my parents, at the ready to help me out in whatever way I ask.  I believe they are the two best people I know, and I am so blessed to have them in my life!  I also am thankful for Tony’s family, who I feel like aren’t my in-laws, but my own family too.

 

-Friends: I am grateful to be surrounded by friends who make me smile and that I can have fun with. I can’t imagine not having a few close friends who I spend time with regularly.

 

-My health, and the health of my family: This year in particular, I am even more aware how precious life is.  God has blessed me with good health, and it is something I typically take for granted.

 

-Tank: The best dog in the world!  Tank never, ever wakes me up in the morning!  He always sleeps until I wake up, and doesn’t rush me out of bed, regardless of how late I sleep in.  He faithfully follows me around the house, and assures that I am never alone.
