So reading Marissa and Kirsten's blogs and seeing their 7 days of gratitude got me thinking I needed to post my gratefullness (pretty sure I spelled that wrong, don't tell anyone my degree was English) as well. All this month, Tyson and I have written 10 things we are thankful for each night before we go to bed. At first I thought that would be kind of hard because we can't do any repeats. Well, I guess I never realized how blessed I am and all the little things that surround me that I would have such a hard time living without. Like dental floss, pillows, gloves, mail boxes, hair elastics, and the one drawer we have in our kitchen. :) I love November, I think it is one of my favorite months. True, outside looks pretty dismal but so many wonderful things happen that month. Everyone is really excited because there is a long break from work, school and the normal routine of life at the end of the month, not to mention a huge feast. Plus, Christmas is soon so that magical feeling is always in the air seeping into our homes and our hearts. It is hard not to be happy right now. And plus, last year at this time little Josh was so close to coming into our lives. In five days we get to celebrate his 1st birthday and I am so excited. True, he is exhausting and sometimes frustrating, but I love him so much, and I can't imagine my life without him. And of course I think every day is wonderful because Tyson is in it. My life is so full and wonderful because of him. Every evening when we get home from work it is like a party. We are always doing something fun and enjoying each other's company. I know that right now, even though he is at work and busy, I know in the back of him mind he is thinking about me and hoping I am doing well and always loving me. I know that because no matter what I am doing, I am loving him and thinking of him too. The Lord has been so good to bless me with so much. My life is filled with happiness. I have so many friends and people that love me, so much food in the cupboards and fridge, so much warmth in our apartment, so many happy memories, so much to be thankful for. Thank you to everyone that reads this, because I know you care about me and I'm thankful for you.
