The Things I Am Thankful For That I Will Not Be Mentioning At The Table This Holiday

I am thankful for many things this year.

But life has been a little too serious for my liking the last few months; so my list this year will be the things that I won’t be mentioning at the obligatory “what are you thankful for this year” statement before the meal on Thursday.

  1.  I am thankful for indoor plumbing. During our recent slight flood during our bathroom remodel we went without water for about 36 hours. I can’t tell you how many times I tried to turn on the faucet only to remember that we had no water.
  2. I am thankful for my new refrigerator. It is a beast in the best way possible.
  3. I am thankful for Amazon. That website makes my life much easier. From soap to Christmas presents, Amazon always comes to the rescue.
  4. I am thankful for my dishwasher, after living without one for almost two years.
  5. I am thankful that Publix and Target are less than five minutes from my house.
  6. I am thankful for the wool socks I wear to bed at night.
  7. I am thankful that my husband puts up with my bountiful shoe collection.
  8. I am thankful for the little birthday celebration that my sister-in-law threw for me this week.
  9. I am thankful that we are going to be beach right after New Years.
  10. I am the most thankful that we get a four day weekend starting today.
  11. I am glad that I remembered to do all my holiday grocery shopping on Saturday so I am not fighting the crowds today.:)

But most of all, I am thankful for my family- my husband, stepsons, parents and siblings.

Because I don’t believe the saying,”No matter how bad things get, family will always be there.”

Your family does not always have to be there for you. It’s their choice.

And I hope I never take for granted the fact that they choose to be there for me.

  1. I wrote a similar post today and I forgot to add that I am thankful that I too live close (within walking distance) to Publix and Walgreen and five minutes from Target!
