As Thanksgiving is here, I just want to proclaim my thanks for the many blessings that I have in my life.
- I have such a wonderful supporting husband and family. So many people do not have a positive support system, but I do, and I am so very thankful. I could not imagine walking this life alone. This year we celebrated five years of marriage, and I am looking forward to fifty more.
- The financial security to be live and enjoy. In this economy so many people just struggle to keep a roof over their head. I have the luxury of a roof, a full pantry, and closets full of crap. A new years resolution will likely include solving that last one, but I am thankful each day for all the blessings I have been given.
- Being useful. Last year at this time I struggled with feelings of value. It it hard to be unemployed. Everyone wants to feel useful and important. I found a great organization to volunteer with, and multiple times per week, I get to see great friends, while helping people make life changes.
