Being Thankful

So yesterday I basically posted crap. And I said I'd be more thoughtful today. So given that my good friend commented on the crap post with, "what are you thankful for?" I shall share what I am thankful for. I thought I had blogged it, but maybe I didn't.

So. What am I thankful for?
*I'm thankful for my husband who puts up with my crap on a pretty much daily basis and makes coffee for me often.
*I'm thankful for my Shorty McShort, she teaches me something new almost everyday, even if it's to just slow down and appreciate where she is.
*I'm thankful for my job, even though it can be quite stressful at times. My job is secure, I have freedom in how I teach and I work with an amazing staff. And the fact that there are 20 short people who adore me Monday-Friday from 7:40-2:00. Seriously, who could ask for more?
*I'm thankful for good friends like her and her and her and her.
*I'm thankful that my in-laws are normal, down to earth, fun to spend time with people who love me.
*I'm thankful to have a house that I'm not in jeopardy of losing.
*I'm thankful for my health.

My goal is to stop complaining and be more thankful on a daily basis.

So what are you thankful for?

I'm thankful that I like my in-laws too. I always look forward to when they come visit.

It's always good to stop and remember to be "thankful". In our crazy stressed out lives, I know I often find myself grumbling or complaining about things often. I need these "thanksgiving reminders" to truly remember and be thankful for all the blessings I do have in my life.
