Thinking on being grateful

It's nice to be cathartic at times, but it is even better to be reminded of the happier things.

We still laugh as a family all the time.

I have wonderfully smart, imaginative boys

I only lose 1 reader when I talk about the bad stuff rather than 10.

We have enough money to keep our home, to feed everything and every body.

We are warm, even at -17F

I have family, friends and readers that share my life with the same (if not more) enthusiasm as I

I have an incredible support system (see above)

I am grateful for not only my triumphs but my tribulations. I learn so much from both.

I am amazingly thankful for my husband's boss, who has allowed us to borrow his car for almost a year now as we slowly rebuild our truck's engine. (If you need some bike work done and you just happen to be passing through Kansas, Broadway Street Bikes in Haysville is were to go)

I am grateful that I have my father's stubbornness.

I get to spend the Holidays with my family.

I am thankful that after 13 years, my husband's kiss still makes me weak in the knees.

Husband's touch still gives me goose bumps.

I am grateful that he doesn't snore. He can't say the same.

I am thankful that even though we are struggling in life at this time, that I have everything I need to survive.

I appreciate my husband and everything he does for me.

I appreciate my children and everything they try to do.

I am thankful that I still have my words, and my memories.

And I am thankful to all of you that take time out to stop by and see what is going on in my little part of Kansas.

edited to add; My hay guy! He rocks! ha!

Sometimes catharsis works both ways. Glad to see this post too.

And happy to see Megan from GE contacted you. I hope you are on the way to having it fixed. [One more thing to be thankful for I think - laundry in the tub in the dead of winter? Sucks.]
