All sunshine and rainbows

For the month of November, I wrote about being thankful in my Month of Thanksgivings posts.

It’s now December 18th so my Month of Thanksgivings has long since come to an end (only in blog posts, of course).

But I have some catching up to do since my last blog post was on November 23rd. That leaves a little over a week’s worth of stuff I didn’t write about in November. And even more things I am thankful for that didn’t make it in my blog mentions.

So I’m going to list, in no particular order, things I’m thankful for. Some of these things are major and some are simple petty things but I figured, what the heck, why not?

I’m thankful for all the great food I ate on Thanksgiving, particularly the desserts.

I’m thankful for my awesome family and friends. What we lack in sanity, we make up for in love.

I’m thankful for the snooze button. (this is one of those major things I talked about😉)

I’m thankful for music.

I’m thankful for The Husband. He can make me laugh, even when I don’t want to, he’s laid back, he’s a great dad. Plus, he’s pretty easy on the eyes.

I’m thankful for the fact that there are still 7 shopping days before Christmas. Naturally, as a card carrying member of Procrastinators of America, I got a really late start on my purchases.

I’m thankful for sleep. Because even though the “baby” is two and a half, there are still occasional sleepless nights of up and down with her.

I am thankful for cheese. I think cheese is one of the many blessings in life. And I’m pretty sure there’s cheese in heaven.

I’m thankful for all five senses.

I’m thankful for bribery. It would be a lot harder to get my toddler dressed and out the door each day without it.

I’m thankful for health insurance. We’ve had a couple medical emergencies this year and thankfully, we were able to get the care we needed at an affordable cost. Medical bills certainly aren’t convenient but without insurance they would have been outrageous.

I’m thankful for man’s best friend. Our sweet pug Dasher Rudolph (aka: Dashy). He was an early Christmas gift seven years ago(hence, the name) and now he’s a member of the family.

I’m thankful for God and the gift of his son, Jesus. And I’m so thankful to have found a church that feels like home for my family.

The list goes on, but these are just some of the first things that come to mind.

Now, for sure, I have my “woe is me” moments where I complain or feel sorry for myself. And I can be a bit sarcastic so it’s not all sunshine and rainbows over here in Smalltown, Tx.

But I pray that each day I’m alive I find more to be thankful for. I am ridiculously blessed with so much more than I deserve. And to Him I give all thanks.

Happy Blogging,
Adrian
