Things have started to get crazy! Not only is Thanksgiving a week away (yikes!), but I got a new job, and have had some big projects to finish for school. But I am pleased to report that I love my new job, got a 100 on the 12 page research paper and website that I had to do for my English class, and have managed to lose a couple pounds while at it! I am definitely staying busy, but still finding a way to fit everything important in!
I have been so busy that Thanksgiving has really crept up on me this year. I love the holidays. Hate the cold, but Thanksgiving and Christmas make it worth it (ask me in January and I might tell you something different). I am so ready for holiday cooking (and eating!). It's a good thing that it's only a small part of the year or I might look like a stuffed turkey year round!
Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful for everything that we have! I know that sometimes we get so caught up in the food and Black Friday, but I wanted to take a moment to list a few of the many things that I am so thankful for.
A wonderful family
A mom and dad who support me and love me, big brothers and a big sister who are such great examples to me, a little brother who keeps us all smiling, and my little sister, who is my best friend.
My mother in law, father in law, and sister in law, who support us in everything we do.
My wonderful husband, who puts up with me at my best and my worst.
My 3 pups and 1 cat (and the 15 fosters we've had through the year).
I'm grateful to own a home with a big backyard that keeps us warm and dry.
I'm grateful that I have the opportunity to get an education.
I'm grateful for my 2 jobs and the opportunity to own my own business.
I'm grateful for a car.
I'm grateful for food to eat and clothes to wear.
I'm grateful for friends.
I'm grateful for my Savior and that he died for me.
I'm grateful for my Heavenly Father and the blessings that he continues to shower down on me.
I could go on and on all day!
I challenge you to keep the true spirit of Thanksgiving in your lives year round!
What are YOU Thankful for??
