giving thanks

I made a promise to God this year, that I wouldn't complain about our circumstances as long as my family was happy and healthy. Because really, what else matters in life? We can live anywhere, do anything, as long as we are healthy and together. So for this Thanksgiving, the things I'm thankful are pretty generic in a sense. This year they are those things that matter most to me.

1. I am thankful for a happy, healthy family
2. I am thankful to have all my basic needs met and beyond
3. I am thankful to have true friends and family who love, never judge and and truly care
4. I am thankful to have a husband that takes care of us and loves us every day
5. I am thankful that I was able to grow more this year in every possible way than ever before
6. I am thankful for my life

I really hope that you can take time this week or on Thanksgiving to reflect on all the things that you are thankful for. You all deserve some quiet "you" time to do that!

And by the way, I'm thankful for you!

Tomorrow: What Brody is thankful for!
