Happy Thanksgiving


Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
I am thankful for so many things and as a rule I try to remember them more than once a year, though I will admit it is easy to take things for granted sometimes and forget the things I have. 
However I think it's nice to have a holiday to celebrate all that we're thankful for, and to remind us how blessed we are. And even if things seemingly aren't going so great there's always something to be grateful for. 
Even if it's just food on the table and a roof over our heads.
I could write for a very long time on all the things I am thankful for. In fact that's a little bit of what this blog is about, staying positive and finding happiness in every day things. 
Finding things to enjoy, even when life maybe isn't so presently enjoyable.
I have enough happiness lists to prove my attempts at that.
But since this is the time of year where we do count our blessings, and share our most loved and best, here are a few of mine:

My relationship with my savior. 
And His all encompassing ever forgiving love. 
My parents. 
For being so supportive of me and all that I do and encouraging me to pursue my dreams with everything I have. For loving me when I mess up and when I make mistakes. 
And for giving me a fantastic example of what a loving marriage looks like.
My brothers.
For putting up with their only sister and all the girly things that entails. 
And for the girly things it does not, such as playing lego and G.I. Joe's and building race tracks and playing in the creek and watching John Wayne movies. 
And for always making me laugh.
My Boyfriend.
For loving me exactly the way I am. 
For secretly learning how to knit behind my back, for watching all of our many shows, for going to every one of my craft shows with me, for having fun adventures together as big as Boston and as small as getting slurpees at 7-11.
And for loving my glasses.
My friends.
For being the crazy, wonderful, hilarious, fun, kind, supportive, ridiculous, encouraging, spontaneous, giving, caring, loving, generous, frustrating, helpful, beautiful people that they are.
My Jobs.
Being able to do all the things I love is the best kind of living.
My Life.
For all of the hard times which help me become a better person and teach me things I need to learn, for all of the good times that make all the hard times worth it. For having more blessings and things to be thankful for than I can count. For all of the talents I have been gifted with that I can use to fulfill God's purpose for my life and bring glory to Him. 
For exciting opportunities and fun adventures and things to do and see. 
I'm thankful for it all.


What are you thankful for?
