Though I can often be pessimistic in life (that’s just my personality) I feel that there are many things to be thankful for this year. My family is generally in good health, mine and Ken’s jobs are fairly stable, and our finances are comfortable. Much of the time I get caught up in the stresses of life and don’t find time to appreciate the little things that come my way. I find myself pining after the latest Apple gear when what I have at home works well enough, even if it’s a bit old, technologically speaking. I don’t always appreciate my kid’s unique personalities all the time and usually end up being more frustrated by them than anything. I dread the holidays because it means making room for a Christmas tree and cooking, when I can barely cook my way out of a Hamburger Helper box.
I’m not sure that I’ll ever be able to change my general outlook, it seems to require more willpower than I have. If I had that kind of willpower I would have a good exercise program too and be much healthier (LOL). I don’t really bother with New Year’s Resolutions anymore, since I know how it will turn out. But anyways, enough of the downer stuff, below is a short list of things I need to remember to be thankful for:
My family’s health,
I have a stable job (and can telecommute),
Ken has a stable job,
There is a roof over my head,
There is food in the refrigerator and cupboards,
I have clothes to wear,
The weather should be beautiful tomorrow,
My husband loves me,
My kids love me,
My pets love me (I think, LOL),
There are people that care about me and would miss me if I was gone,
I have a reliable car,
and the most important things to be thankful for…..
GOD AND JESUS LOVE ME! 🙂
I hope everyone has a great and happy Thanksgiving and I hope you all have many things to be thankful for too.
