Thanksgiving Thanks

Things I'm Thankful for this Year. 

1. My job. Times are tough out there and people are struggling. Have you seen the unemployment rates? Yeah... not good. Even though I may not be happy at work 100% of the time, I am thankful that I have a job and that it allows me to afford life. 

2. My family. I love my Mom. She's awesome and she's always been there for me. The rest of my family- well they may not be the coolest but at least they're not like crazy Randy Quaid. 

3. My Best Friends- Kristin, Cheryl & Erica she's always there 24/7 to deal with my crazy shenanigans and listen to my ideas that could have been used by Lucy on I love Lucy. And of course they participate in the crazy ideas with me. 

4. My Travels. This has been a big year of travel for me and I am very thankful. I love going around the world and seeing things that I have always wanted to see. I hope that next year I am fortunate enough to do the same. 

5. A Home. I'm so thankful that I have a roof over my head. I'm tough but I don't think I could make it on the streets. So many families have been pushed out of their homes this year and have nothing now. Thankfully, I'll be spending the holidays in a home.

Great list. I have seen some others doing their thankful list and it's a great idea to remember all of these things this time of year. Enjoy your turkey day!

So true on the job and the home. It breaks my heart to know people can't provide for their loved ones. And the thought of not having shelter...a nightmare. We just got hit with a very cold, windy, icy, snow storm last night and on my way home I thought to myself "How will those on the streets make it through a storm like this?"

Thanks for sharing your Thanks!

Have a blessed Holiday!
