This year, I'm thankful for...

My new job that I start on Monday! It was nice having some time off, and I got what seems to be the perfect fit for me just in time! I had prayed that I would have something by January 1st & I got something sooner than that! I had prayed that I would be able to work for something I am a little more passionate about (previous job was just a job for me). I didn't expect that would happen because it seemed to me that my resume would help me get a job in the same type of work. But i got something at a place with creative types - a cosmetology school! I assumed my next job would have a cubicle, but no - I have my own office! Small, but cute! I am excited!!! 

I get to meet a blog friend... next week... several of them, really! FINALLY! 

I got to do a little more theater this year. Love!

I have so many great friends... I am truly blessed in this area! I have best blog friends, best church friends, best theater friends! I mean... they're everywhere & they are GOOD people who truly love me! I am truly blessed in this area!

I have been known to complain about where we live, but I am truly thankful to have a roof over my head & I know one day we will have a house. We may not live in my favorite area of town, but it's with my man & it's "home". 

I am so very thankful that I found the reason I was not losing weight. Insulin Resistance. So many view that as a bad thing, but if i didn't know about it, i would have continued eating how you are supposed to eat to lose weight, which would not have helped me in any way! Just being on the medicine for this has regulated my blood pressure, helped me lose weight, and other things. I am lucky to have formed friendships with people who also have this & who have done much of the research for me! And I love the people at the Metabolic Clinic! (Now... if i can just get back on track with eating well!)

It's been awhile since anything has fallen apart! We went through a season of everything breaking - cars, washing machines, air conditioners. It's been awhile. That's all i'm saying!

It goes without saying that I am thankful for my husband. But truly - I am thankful for another year of marriage that was wonderful! I feel like i *have to* say "hard times, of course", but seriously... sometimes my heart literally ACHES because I love him so. I am thankful to have been able to be by his side at his Granny's funeral. I am thankful that we made it through a hard season of me losing my job, lots of expenses, and other things. I am thankful for his kindness, his talent, that he humors me & still makes me feel beautiful. He calls me "my sweet girl" & it makes my heart melt. I LOVE HIM!

I am thankful for some great in-laws! I feel like I grew closer to them during Granny's last weeks with us, and in the week after her death. I feel like Granny left behind a fabulous legacy. She and her husband were strong Christians who did not waiver in their love for God or for each other. It is exciting to me that our children have them as their great grandparents, even though they won't get to meet them.

I am thankful for my own family. I love them & am glad my sister met a great guy & is now a newlywed! I pray they have a wonderful time on their honeymoon to ITALY! I am thankful for my mom who took me shopping these last couple of months! I enjoyed time with her during my sister's wedding weekend. She is the best! 

What are you thankful for this year?
