Tis’ the holiday season, and with that, I started thinking about all the things that I am thankful for. Don’t get me wrong, I am probably thankful for hundreds of things, but I decided to pick 5 that really stood out in my life.
So here are the five things I am thankful for.
1. My mind. I am thankful every day that the Lord gave me a brain and that I am able to use it. It has kept me out of trouble and has lead me to make good decisions. When I have made bad ones, it has helped me not to repeat my mistakes.
2. My husband. Without him, I wouldn’t have a happy life, 2 beautiful kids, or a nice home to live in. I have to thank my mind for making that good decision of meeting and marrying him. 🙂
3. Good health. I have Crohn’s disease, so everyday there is a possibility that I could have a flare. I guess I would say that I am really thankful for the Doctors and Scientists that have created medicines and treatments to help me with my condition. Plus, every good day is day, that I can be there for my kids.
4. Staying at home with my kids. I have to thank my husband again for this because he works hard so I can be at home. There are so many things that my kids and I might have missed out on or not experienced along the way if I would not have had this opportunity. Plus, I joined a Mom’s group and have met a lot of nice ladies as well. Along with this, I also have to thank myself for being thrifty (my mind), because this also allows us to have a comfortable life while saving money at the same time.
5. Food on the table. I have to thank the Lord that on Thursday we will have food on the table. It is obviously a collaborative effort between many people, but ultimately it wouldn’t be possible without a heavenly power watching over us.
So when you stop by today via a Blog Hop or just stop by to visit, thank about the things you are thankful for and feel free to leave a comment.
