Give Thanks

2015 has been a year full of ups and downs for me so far. Lately, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about who and what is most important to me and whether or not I’m living my life every day in the best way possible. I’m finding that my thoughts leave me with many more questions than answers, and part of me is very frustrated that a clear path hasn’t presented itself yet. But regardless of what the future holds, I’m working hard to enjoy today. In fact, I have a lot to be thankful for… a whole heck of a lot. So while some people are stretching their thanks out over the entire month, I’m writing down 30 things I’m thankful for right now. Today. This very minute.

I’m Thankful For…

  2. My health
  3. My family’s health
  4. My husband; Being able to share my life with him makes every day special
  5. My parents; My mom and I might not always see eye to eye, but no matter what they are ALWAYS there for me
