Thankful

I know Thanksgiving was yesterday, but I needed to sleep off the effects of the turkey before I posted again. All that food was so delicious and it was such a delight to be with all of my family, except for my sister who lives in Thailand. {We missed you Liz!}

We really have so much to be thankful for, and here are the things at the top of my list.

1. My husband. Even though we’ve only been married 2 1/2 years, I cannot imagine life without him. I am so thankful for how patient, loving, and kind he is toward me. He has a great way of helping me mellow out when I get too high strung. He really is my better half.

2. My family. I am so grateful that my family gets along so well and truly loves each other. I’m thankful that we got to spend almost a month with my sister in October since she couldn’t get back to Thailand because of the flooding. I’m thankful that my brother is home from New Hampshire and we get to spend time with him. I’m thankful that my other sister has found someone to spend the rest of her life with. I’m thankful I have such a good relationship with my husband’s family that they have become my family.

3. A new job. I’m incredibly thankful to be in a new position at work. After 6 years working in a position that wasn’t a great fit, I’m now thankful to have a job that I enjoy. A job that I am good at that makes me feel fulfilled at work.

4. Health. I’m thankful that we have a healthy family. 2 years ago my mom was going through chemo and radiation, and I am thankful that is behind us. We aren’t guaranteed life, and we aren’t guaranteed that our family members will always be healthy, so this year I am trying not to take that for granted.

5. Knitting. I am so thankful to have found a hobby that I enjoy so much. I’m also thankful that knitting is a little more popular now than it used to be, so that I don’t always look like a grandma. I still can’t believe that people want to buy things that I knit. It is such an honor.
