This months I’ll Show You My post is Things I’m Thankful for.. because, Thanksgiving! You can read my list from last year here.
I wanted to do something different this year, instead of just listing of all the things I’m Thankful one by one. I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted to do, I’m actually still not 100% sure how I want to do this. So I’m kinda just winging it!
I consider myself a lucky woman I have a wonderful husband who works hard for our family, is super romantic and loving and he’s really the best dad! I have six really great kids! They’re smart, funny, sweet and so well behaved. I always wanted a big family and I’m so thankful I got it. I have some of the best friends a girl could ask for! They are really more like family. And as for family, we have a few people on both sides who are always there for us (as we are for them) and we love spending time with them! I don’t think I could ask for anything more.
But as I think about it, is it really luck? After all, nothing in life comes easy, you have to work at it and towards it. We work very hard for the things we need, have and want. We have a good marriage because we put effort into it. Our kids are such good kids because we work hard to raise them right. We have friends and family because we focus on maintaining those relationships and making our loved ones feel loved. So yes I am “thankful” for these things, but really I can just appreciate how much effort went into it all.
Of course there are things we don’t have complete control over, for example we’ve been blessed with good health. Chris has a good job and provides for our family and we’re not struggling financially (which in this world is something that too many people have to deal with). So because of these blessings, we try to give back any chance we can. “What goes around comes around.” “Treat others the way you want to be treated.” I am a firm believer in karma and I like to put out a lot of good.
I have a really good life, and I am so thankful for everything that I have. I’m a pretty positive person and I try to really appreciate the little things. So many people are so focused on things that don’t really matter. And for me, it’s really just about love and relationships. I so love being surrounded by my family and friends making memories that will last my lifetime. Because in the end, the “things” won’t matter..
