Happy Thanksgiving

Well this is going to be a mushy post, I was reading another blog this morning and she had listed everything she was thankful for. I'm going to do the same.

Health- unless I'm healthy it's hard to enjoy anything in life. Especially since a friend was diagnosed with Hodgkins disease this year (at only 22) it really hits home how lucky so many of us really are.

Home- just over 2 weeks and I will be in my new home. How many people can say they had their first new home at 25. Kristen and I are very fortunate.

Wealth- no we're NOT rich, far from it but we are both employed and there's not much that we want that we do go without.....well within reason :)

Family- I've been so blessed to have a close and supportive family. Not only do I have a brother, and my parents alive and well. I also have all my grandparents still kicking. I remember being in Grade 4 and talking to a boy in Grade 5 and he said to me "so you know all your grandparents?" and "I'm like yup some of my great grandparents too" (I think 2 of them were still alive at the time) he's like "you're so lucky" and I kind of looked at him weird thinking well doesn't everyone know their grandparents? He never knew any of his....now looking back I realize he missed out on so many things with "Nan and Pop" that if we talked now he could never relate too.

Friends- I have sooooo many great friends. A couple that are really close to me. Without you guys I don't know what I would do, you keep me sane, let me bitch and vent, you make me laugh, let me cry, and help me realize why girlfriends are the most important thing to have in the world.

Love- last but certainly not least, there's Kristen. I don't even know what to say here without embarrassing the shit out of him....lol. You're my best friend, the one I share secrets with that nobody else knows, you keep me grounded and remind me when I'm not being a "better" person. You're always giving me hugs or cuddling in the morning (making it so hard to get up). I love that you're so passionate about the things you love, hunting, fishing and hockey. I love that you tolerate my moods and moments of craziness. And as hard as it is to admit I like that you're a smartass, yes it does aggravate me sometimes, but the rest of the time it makes me laugh and I love that we can just have fun together.

So yeah, that's it for now, all of these topics especially family, friends and love I could just go on and on. But I won't.....hope you all have a great thanksgiving and take even just a few moments to reflect on what you're thankful for.

Wonderful post. Yes we do have many things to be thankful for. I think I need to copy your idea and remind myself of what I'm thankful for too.
