I am so thankful for many things in my life. It's not just during the Holidays when I realize this. I very often think to myself how lucky I am. This would be a very long post if I listed everything, and possibly quite boring to most people, so here's the short version!
I am thankful for...
My husband. I don't know where I'd be without him! He means everything to me. I'm so lucky to have met him at the age of only fourteen. We are one of those few first true loves who made it, who beat the odds. We literally grew up together and have gained so much strength as a couple through the years. I'm so proud of how far we have come. We still have a lifetime ahead of us that I look forward to every day.
Our family. All of our Siblings, Parents, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins. I'm grateful for all of them! They have affected us in positive ways which have led us to make good decisions in life. My Nephews and Nieces (all five of them!) make me smile daily and I love them with all my heart. I'm very lucky to not only have a wonderful family, but a wonderful second family.

My friends. Some I have known my entire life, some since high school, some I've known for only a few years. They're each very important to me. Many have been there for me through thick and thin. They're great people to be around and I'm happy to call them my friends. We've shared belly-aching laughs, tears of joy, and tears of sadness. It's always a great time when we're together. We have so many memories that I'll never ever forget. I love my girls (and guys)! They're the best anyone could ask for.
My puppy. I can't imagine my life without her. She's such a great dog. How many dogs will sleep in with you until 11am without making a peep?! or not have to eat at a specific time? or has been fully potty-trained since 3 months old? Okay, I'll stop bragging ;) Plus she's my best companion when hubby works. I love her sooo very much.
Our house that gives us great comfort every day. We were very blessed to become homeowners at fairly young ages (21 & 22)! I love this place we call our home. It's so warm and inviting, peaceful and relaxing (at least till a baby comes along!). I'm very proud of it, even if it does take a chunk of our income!
Our jobs, in many ways. I work at my parents company that they founded in '88. Through their hard work my siblings and I had a great life growing up. It put food on our table and clothes on our bodies, enrolled us in every sport imaginable, helped pay for our first cars, got us through college, and enabled us have family vacations. So my job is much more than a 9-5 prison just to get a paycheck. I care very much about it. Jimmy has a very stable career with great benefits and good pay. It has provided us with enough to pay our bills and go on vacations on occasion. So thankful for that.
That's already a lot to be thankful for and there is honestly so much more. But I would go on and on forever! I hope everyone has a very Happy Thanksgiving, filled with family, love, and yummy food! Enjoy every minute of it!
