What are you Thankful for?

25 Nov


Each week I will ask a question in hopes you will answer.  And in honor of Thanksgiving this week’s question is…

What are you Thankful for?

As we all sit around the tables today and eat ourselves into a turkey induced coma I hope we can really recognize what we are thankful for.  At first the things we are thankful for are obvious: family, friends, good health, the meal we are about to eat, etc.  And while I am thankful daily for those things, this year I wanted to be thankful for the things I normally complain about.  So here it is:

10. I am thankful for my small house.  A big house would feel too lonely.

9. I am thankful that my kids fight over the same spot on a very large sectional couch.

It makes that spot seem more comfortable when I sit in it.

8. I am thankful for a very noisy house.  It’s full of life.

7. I am thankful that my 8 year old questions me.  It means he will also question his peers.

6. I am thankful my 2 year old always wants to be near me, even when I am going to the bathroom.

5. I am thankful my 8 year old is a “chatter box.”  I know he won’t always want to talk to me.

4. I am thankful for financial hardships.  We are finding out what is truly valuable.

3. I am thankful that my house gets dirty.  It means it is being lived in.

2. I am thankful for my husband and all his faults.  There was a time when I almost lost them for good.

And the number one reason I am thankful this Thanksgiving…

1. I am thankful I am not a Turkey.
