a house with a roof
a running car
a job I love
clients and friends who inspire me
drivers who wave when you let them in
strangers who smile back
a family who has loved me and supported me unconditionally
a half sister who I haven’t seen in years yet comments on almost every Facebook post
being godparents to two girls I love more than I knew was possible
a G-Ma who would do anything for me, and has
a papa who loved me as though I were his granddaughter by blood
Best friends who:
I can laugh with and cry with
are loyal, without question
are now my family
A mom who:
is getting straight A’s in both of her classes!
I have a great relationship with
A husband who:
makes me laugh daily
celebrates my birthday every month on the 14th (the last was 30 and 5/12ths)
can articulate my thoughts better than I can
loves his family
loves my family
makes me heart-shaped food every year on Valentine’s Day
thinks I’m the most beautiful when I wake up in the morning
is my very best friend
holds my hand as often as he can
likes my laugh best when it’s the dorkiest
loves me with his whole heart
What I’m most thankful for… Living a life I’m proud of.
And now I’m in a pile of tears.
Each and every single one of you owe it to yourself to take a few hours today (or any day) and really think about and write down all of the things in your life you’re thankful for. And if your list, like mine, includes people… take the time to tell them what they mean to you. You owe it to them.
And to the best, most loyal blog readers around… from the bottom of my heart, thank you.
