So...today was a kind of a hard day. Not at all as bad as a couple days I had last week, but for some reason, I was just kind of mellow today. I don't like the feeling, but I've been assured that any of the feelings that I have are normal. So I thought I would follow Lianna's example, and instead of just focusing on the hard things in my life, I needed to publically list some of things that I'm thankful for. Maybe I'll just start doing this every Thursday, since Thankful Thursday has more of a ring to it than Thankful Monday! =)
1) I'm thankful for my husband. As I've mentioned before (but not often enough), Justin is my rock. He loves me so much, and tells me, even when I feel my worst. He compliments me and builds me up, gives me the attention I need (and also the space I need), and he daily makes me laugh! Justin works so hard to provide for us, and is such a wonderful leader of our family. Thank you Justin, for being the best husband in the world! I love you so much!!!
2) I'm thankful for my Betsy. I know that could seem silly to some people who don't have furry children, but honestly, every day I think of how lucky I am to have this sweet dog in my life. She is a source of unconditional love for both of us. She is the biggest cuddler, constantly happy to be as close as she possibly can be to us. (Right now she is sleeping by my feet! I've never been welcomed with such excitement by anyone each and every time I come in the door, even if I've only gone out to get the mail! I mean, how could you not be thankful for this adorable face?!
(This was her begging me for a bite of my dinner the other night)3) Silly, but I'm thankful for my laptop! It was in the shop for almost three weeks, and we just got it back tonight. It makes my life so much easier, and I think I blog more often when I have it too! I'm thankful that it was fixed, under warranty, and that none of our files or programs were erased. Isn't technology great, when it's working?!
Just three for tonight, but I'm planning on doing more in a few days. Check back for Thankful Thursday!
