I Really Am Thankful!!

The last couple of post have been a bit woe is me and I totally understand that all of my issues, complaints are pretty much first world problems so I decided for this week to talk about what I'm thankful for.  My life really isn't that bad it's just not working out how I hoped/planned it would. And I know if you want to make God laugh tell him your plans!

Here are just a few things I am thankful for:

  • I am thankful that my dad keeps pushing through and is getting better daily and doing what he is suppose to most of the time
  • I am thankful that my mom is healthy and hasn't strangled my dad yet LOL being a caretaker isn't easy and working full time...The secret is out my mom is Superwoman
  • I am thankful to have a job that allows me to pay my bills and I don't have to work 2 jobs anymore
  • I am thankful my car is paid for and is still going (See Jesus I'm really thankful for this paid off car so lets make sure it keeps running for a few more years :))
  • I am thankful to have a pretty nice roof over my head
  • I am thankful to always have food in my fridge (also even more thankful for my mom because she supplies some of it)
  • I'm thankful for family...we may not talk everyday but I know they are there
  • I am thank for my friends...I have great friends in different area codes
  • I am thankful for life...I know everyday that I open my eyes and can move all of my body parts it's a great day
  • I am thankful for growth...others may not see it but there are things about me that I know for sure are different than when I was in my 20's and I may as well add my 30's since I'm pretty much in the 40 club now LOL
  • I am thankful for the DVR (commercials are the devil)
  • I am thankful for dance classes because I can be a dancer like in a Missy video (in my head of course...y'all know I'm rhythmless nation)
  • I am thankful for fresh air in the Spring and Fall and I can walk outside
  • I am thankful for beaches and praying I see one this year
  • I am really, really thankful for cupcakes
This list could go on but you get the point! And yes some of these maybe silly to some but part of my growth is appreciating everything and realizing that life just isn't that bad. Now don't get to excited we are 43 days away from the BIG 4 0 so I am sure there is one or two more woe is me post coming LOL!

The way I see it is I need a happy medium...I'm human so I am going to have bad days, woe is me, OMG my life days but if I can remember that this to shall pass and find the positive I'm off to a great start in these here 40's!


Almost 40 and working on a happy medium
