t h a n k s

I meant to get this post up during the month of November, but hey! Just because Thanksgiving is over, doesn't mean I will stop being thankful! So without further ado, I give you my "Thankful" list :)

I am so thankful for wonderful holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas that humble me and remind me what life is really all about! This beautiful video brings me to tears each time I watch it... oh how I love the holidays!

I am super thankful for modern day conveniences such as heat in my home, running water, toilet paper, vehicles, hot chocolate, etc :)

I am thankful for music! My dad instilled a love for music in all of us kids from the beginning of time! He is an incredible musician and blesses so many lives with his talent. His latest venture is composing music for short films. This is his first and if you make it to the end, there is an adorable surprise! Anyway, I love how music can change my mood and make me feel happier!

I am thankful for our jobs and that we have always been able to pay our bills. Life hasn't always been hunky-dory in the career department, but we are always taken care of and I'm grateful for that! Hard work pays off!

I am thankful for the blogging world! You all give me love, support and inspiration on the daily and I love you all!

I am so, so thankful for my health! I am thankful that my healthy body has the ability to workout, take care of my family, etc. I try so hard not to take our health for granted!

I am thankful for nice people. Goodness, they can be hard to come by these days. I'm not sure when it became easier to be grouchy and avoid smiling at others, but I try hard to go out of my way to give a smile, or say hello and just try to be plain nice. (Key word there... I try! But I need to try harder!)

As always, I am thankful for our families! Eric and I married into the best!

Last (for this list) but not least, I am thankful for Eric and Mia! I really scored in the husband and daughter department and I thank God multiple times a day for my people!

There is always, always something to be thankful for!

Great post! Always something to be thankful for. Always good to remember that too. Esp the little conveniences we tend to forget are blessing. Like AC =) And hot cocoa! Totally agree.
