QUESTION: What are you thankful for this year?
Another thankful post that I felt the need to do. 🙂 I have so much to be thankful for this year.
My Husband. You know the saying, “when someone else’s happiness is your happiness, that is love.”? It’s the truth when it comes to my husband. He does everything in his power to make me happy, and he always makes sure I know how much he loves me. I’m so grateful for him and his love.
My Daughter. I know these first two things are obvious, but my life wouldn’t be as wonderful as it is without these two people. Sunnie completely lives up to her name every day. She’s smart and talented and compassionate. She brings us so much joy and happiness. I’m lucky to be her mom.
My Job. When I decided to make a career change, I had no idea such a wonderful opportunity would present itself. Going part time and switching jobs was life-changing. It’s given me the balance I needed, and I’m so grateful.
Running. I never imagined I’d be a person who would love to run as much as I do. I was the girl who faked being sick in gym class whenever we had to run. I was the queen of lazy. And now, I can’t go without it. If I don’t get to run for a few days, my body craves it. It’s a stress reliever and ME time. It gives me something to work towards every week. And because of it, I’m healthier than I’ve ever been in my life.
Books. Relaxing with my book and a cup of coffee or a glass of wine in front of the fire. It’s one of my favorite things to do. Pure bliss. I am thankful for all the authors that feed my love of reading.
Friendships. “Your friends should motivate and inspire you. Your circle should be well rounded and supportive. Quality over quantity always.” I am lucky to have a tight group of friends – people who always support me and lift me up. No drama. Just love and respect. I am forever grateful for these people in my life.
My Home. After living together for 11 years, my husband and I finally decided to buy a house. And it happened to be the house we’ve been renting the past 7 years. It was a long and stressful process. And a lot of work has gone into fixing it up and making it ours. But every minute has been worth it.
My Parents. My life would be a lot more difficult without their help. They watched Sunnie for years while I worked full-time, saving me the expense of day care. Because of them I can have regular date nights with my husband. They spoil my kid because she’s an only grandchild. I am very blessed to have such wonderful parents.
My Cats. I couldn’t leave out my favorite furry babies. They are the cutest, sweetest little jerks ever, and I love them. Life would be boring without them making us crazy.
