Thankfulness

I know it's a week early, but I've been thinking about thankfulness a lot lately. Our family has been going through some hard stuff, and it's easy to get sad and depressed. Dad's overall attitude has been so great during all this, so one of my main goals over the last 6 months has been to try to focus on all the positive things and be thankful for each day we have together. I think this blog entry is more for myself than for anyone else. I'd like to make a list of things I'm thankful for so that I can come back and read it when I lose my focus.
I'm thankful for...
a God that I can trust to keep His promises... a hard-working, faithful husband (that I get to see in 2 days!!)... the best, most loving parents I could ever ask for... the world's greatest brother (and lifetime friend)... awesome in-laws and extended family... comforting, dependable friends and church families... the Bible... prayer... my goofy Titus who makes me laugh every day... my health... nature... doctors and nurses... a warm, comfortable home... safety... financial health... emotions... opportunities... transportation and technology (sometimes-ha!)
OK- I'll stop there. I could go on and on with all the "little" things I'm thankful for, but I won't. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and get to spend it with those you love. Josh and my brother will be joining us in NM this year. Thank God for all the blessings in our lives!
