This post is a day late, maybe a dollar short, but necessary none the less. This year, I am thankful for just about my whole life. But to stop there feels like a cop-out, so I will make this list, mainly for myself so that I can look back on it on a future rough day. You know, remind myself why I am so amazingly blessed when I feel gloomy.

*I am thankful for a man who loves me, holds me, nurtures me, takes care of me despite my bountiful flaws.
*I am thankful for 4 healthy, happy children who came to me easily, when I know that so many women out there struggle just to build their families.
*I am thankful that I can stay home with my girls, instead of paying somebody else to mother them throughout the day.
*I am thankful for a mom who loves me and never abandons me, despite what I have put her through over the years.
*I am thankful for a father who I can no longer hug, but who is in my heart still. I am surely blessed to have had this man teach me responsibility, respectability, honor, and forgiveness--traits I am finding in my own husband.
*I am thankful my husband still has a job in this crazy economy, and that while things are quite tight, we are in no danger of losing the roof over our heads or going without.

Happy Holidays!
