My friend Jen, who recently moved to Iowa, tagged me on Facebook with this list. She recently bought a book entitled, "29 gifts in 29 Days". She listed 29 things that she is thankful for and I loved the idea! As I am writing this, I realize that maybe I should wait until Thanksgiving for this post, but it's never too early to be thankful right? So here is my list.....
1. My life
2. My husband
3. My kids and step-kids
4. My parents and brother and sister
5. My faith
6. My friends who accept me for who I am
7. My memories
8. My mini van
9. Having a house to live in
10. Having clothes for me and my family
11. My health
12. The grandparents that my kids have
13. The grandparents that I have (which makes them the GREAT-grandparents to my kids)
14. Being able to stay home with my kids
15. Eric's job
16. Dr. Pepper, Chai Tea from Starbucks, Coffee
17. My annoying, but loving dogs
