Here's my 2011 list of what I'm thankful for:
-Of course, having a brand new husband and being able to spend the rest of my life with my best friend by my side
-A nephew who may not have been expected, but who is probably one of the most wonderful blessings for our family this year
-My family, who has been supremely supportive in during my not-so-amazing job at the beginning of this year, not to mention everything else they have done for/with me including giving us an amazing wedding and honeymoon
-A wonderful new family of in-laws who are so loving and who considered me part of the family a long time ago
-A job that gives me some semblance of hope in the educational system, in our future children, and in getting support from the parents of my students
-The new financial opportunities that have come my way through being an Avon representative
-Reconnecting with old friends and staying in touch no matter the distance between us
-My husband finally being able to sign his contract with the Army and having some idea of where our future in the Army is starting out
I think I'm going to make it a goal for 2012 to keep track of my daily blessings in my paper journal (Yes, I still have a paper journal on top of my blog! In fact, I've kept a paper journal since roughly the 5th grade. I'm a nerd.) God has blessed me with so much, and I don't want to only remember those blessings one month/day a year. Goal for next year (but really, starting tomorrow): be more grateful every day for what I've got.
I hope everyone has safe travels for Thanksgiving, and that you have a chance to remember what blessings have come your way this year. Happy Thanksgiving!
And just for giggles, here's my Google hand turkey from the logo this week:
Have a happy and blessed Thanksgiving!
