Reading this post this morning made me think I needed to do my own list of what I'm thankful for. And I *really* need to do it because I realized this morning that the earliest I can move will probably be during Christmas BREAK!!!! and that just bums me out. *sigh*
1. I'm thankful for the health of my children, my husband and myself.
2. I'm thankful that my mom-in-law is having so few negative side effects from her chemo. She's mainly just tired. And there's that whole losing her hair thing. And did you know that they don't *just* lose the hair on their head? Oh no. They lose it *EVERYWHERE* - yes - there too. Why my mom-in-law decided to share this with me, I'll never know, but as bad as it was for me, I think it's traumatized my poor hubby for life.)
3. I'm thankful for my job - which I truly do love as frustrated as I've been with it lately.
4. I'm grateful for my friends, who make me laugh on a daily basis.
5. I'm thankful that my beloved Cotton Kings pulled out two home wins this weekend!
6. I'm thankful that we can afford to get someone to finish out the basement work on our house, because the hubby simply doesn't have the time. And once the basement is done we can set the house!!!
7. I'm thankful that I found the perfect tile for the kitchen last Friday and it's HALF the price of the original tile I wanted to buy!
8. I'm thankful for Ropesville schools - last week when J was sick, as I picked him up, he asked if he would be able to go back to school that day. Because, you know, "school is pretty fun here." After 3 years of him absolutely detesting school at Hardwick, this truly is a blessing from God.
9. I'm thankful that I can go to God when I get down and let go - and he *always* takes care of us. (See item number 6 above).
10. Now I'm thankful for this being number 10! I need to be more thankful for stuff!
