This week I'm linkin' it up...Supah-style!! Okay...so this year has been a bit of a whirl wind for me. I mean, it isn't often that two people meet, get married and have a baby all within a matter of ten months! Okay, maybe it is more common that I think. In any case, I wanted to take a minute today to list a mere fraction of my list of things I am thankful for.
Well, first and foremost, I am definitely thankful for my family and friends!! Wait, does that count as one or two? I'm counting it as one - get over it. Being married to the most understanding husband a crazy lady could ask for and giving birth to the funniest, happiest baby who will eventually be giving me heartburn...all in the same year...AWESOME!! Having the most supportive parents/grandparent a gray-haired giving daughter/granddaughter needs has made life exciting. Being able to share laughs with the highest quality OCD compulsion-sharing friends an ADHD brain can handle is just the icing on the cake.
Second, I am thankful for the fact that I am employed and still getting a paycheck - given the hard economic times we are in currently. While my boss continues to be unforgiving, I can't help but think of where I'd be without my job. I am willing to put up for the put-downs...for now.
Third, I am thankful that my family and I have these four walls and roof we call home. To me, there a huge difference between owning a house and being able to call it home. Our experiences with and love for each other, have turned a simple townhouse into the place we will raise our daughter (and however many more children we end up having).
Last, but not least, I am thankful that I am healthy and able to move around to do the things I do. For those of you playing along at home, the man recently broke his hand. Seeing his frustration while trying to do things like feed the babe or open a jar. It makes me thankful that I am able to do a little extra to get things done. Lets be honest - if both of us were broken, the babe would be running amok...without even being able to run yet!!
