Doesn’t really seem like enough time, does it?  My month is about to get really crazy, so I’m going to 30 Day It right here, right now.  And here we go:

  1. Of course I am thankful for my family and my friends
  2. and their health
  3. and happiness
  4. I am thankful that B and I have good jobs,
  5. and are able to live in a district where Thor goes to an excellent school
  6. and that we are able to live in a sweet, little house
  7. and that our cars are paid for, and both of them still run (!)
  8. I am thankful that my son loves to read
  9. I am thankful for the ability to write and make people laugh
  10. I am thankful for good doctors who are repairing my mother
  11. I am thankful that I truly like my coworkers
  12. I am thankful that Al Gore invented the internet
  13. I have the best in-laws you could ask for–they are up there in 1, 2, and 3, but they also deserve their own thanks because they are that awesome
  14. I get to live in Texas.  Texas is pretty amazing, y’all.  No state income tax.
  15. I am thankful that we get to travel
  16. I love my silly dog, and I am thankful for him
  17. We are coming up on our 10 year anniversary, and I am thankful that B asked me to marry him–sparing me from having to propose to him
  18. I am thankful for old photographs
  19. and for good memories
  20. and for great memories
  21. I am thankful for all the old family stories rolling around in my head
  22. I am thankful to live in this time period where we have electricity, indoor plumbing, and 5000 channels on TV
  23. I am thankful for coffee
  24. I am thankful for a strong back
  25. I am thankful that as I give thanks, I can remember those who might be having a harder time with it
  26. I am thankful for the pizza delivery guy
  27. and the mailman
  28. and that really nice lady who gives me my coffee at McDonald’s in the mornings because her smile brightens my day
  29. and for Thor’s teachers, who are so good to him
  30. but most of all, I am thankful for my mom, my husband, my son, my in-laws, my dad and his wife, my aunts and uncles, and cousins, my friend-family, and my friends.  All the things in the world don’t match up to my people.
