Giving Thanks

An attitude of gratitude can change your mindset. Well, so they say. To that end, we started keeping a gratitude journal earlier this year. I have to admit we don't write it in everyday but try to as much as we can.  Of course, the most important entry was Todd's in September :)

But I can't let this important holiday go by without giving thanks.  So here goes:

  • Todd and I are getting married! We honor our love everyday.
  • Stella is playing like a puppy again! We know there is no cure but everyday she is here is a gift.
  • Todd and I hosted a blended Thanksgiving for our families. You hear nightmares from people about moms meeting but this meet-up went great!
  • I have jobs I love that allow me to work with driven and supportive people - at LeadingAge and Keaton Row. Everyday I get to follow my passion!
  • My friends are amazing people who lift one another up and support through the good and the bad.  Oh, and they are the most fun!
  • My brother and family bring the crazy train to our house from time to time. It's awesome to have this house filled to the roof with family!
  • My parents are appreciative and supportive and we get to see them all the time.
  • Todd's kids and I are continuing to develop relationships with one another.
  • My Goddaughters still want to hang out with me as they grow older - may it last through the teenage years!
  • Sophie is still our hoggie.
  • We have safety and security.
Everyday isn't easy and we have our struggles just like everyone else but we have each other.  And I am thankful for that!
