30 Things

On Facebook a lot of my friends and family are listing one thing they are thankful for each day this month.  So here are my 30 things I'm thankful for this year in random order. 

I am thankful for....

  • My senses.  To be able to feel, taste, hear, see and touch when so many can't do one or many of these things.
  • Our dog...Zeus.  He may be annoying but he teaches me patience and is so loving and forgiving.
  • Our home.
  • Caitlyn's daycare providers.
  • Having my Jeep paid off this year! 
  • Being able to refinance our house with half the interest rate and half the time!
  • My online friends who have gotten me through some rough times over the past 5 years.  It's awesome to have girls to talk with about things that they understand when it seems no one else does.
  • My real life friends who also listen to me when I need it and keep me occupied (take me out drinking) when I need distracted!
  • My Faith.
  • Pedicures with my sister.
  • Our Freedom in America
  • Our armed forces who help us keep our freedom.
  • My job.
  • Jared's work and that his work has still been plentiful this year.
  • All of our extended family.
  • The 2 vacations that we took this year.
  • Modern medicine because without that we wouldn't have Caitlyn and wouldn't be trying for a brother or sister for Caitlyn.
  • Sports that both Jared and I enjoy talking about and watching together.
  • My marriage and feeling safe and secure in our relationship.
  • My education
  • Caitlyn's opportunities for education
  • Season changes.  Waiting for snow now so Caitlyn can go out and really experience it!  
  • My dad who did a great job raising 3 kids on his own!
  • The love of cooking & baking.
  • The love of hosting parties.
  • Working electricity...enjoying our Christmas tree & Christmas music on my ipod this morning because of this awesome invention.
  • Holiday's and time with family that we don't always have.
  • My sister who gets me.  And has the same likes and hobbies as me so we can spend so much quality time together.
  • Jared.  For being an awesome husband who brings me back to earth and keeps me in check. 
  • Caitlyn.  For being the best daughter a mother could ask for.  Words can't describe how thankful I am for the gifts she brings me everyday!

We always have at LEAST 30 things for which we can be thankful - even in the dark times. I appreciate you stopping by my blog and saying hello. It means a lot to me. I hope things continue to go well for you & your cute little Caitlyn has a sibling soon!
