This week’s topic:


6 things you are most thankful for this year

I cannot help but participate in a post about being thankful. No matter how bad things may be, no matter my lack of employment and dwindling savings, life it pretty damn [that’s right, I said it!] good! Damnit! 😉

  1. My kids. I have some of the greatest kids in the world. I know everyone says this, but I don’t know what I did to deserve such great kids. I was a rotten child ~ sorry mom & dad.
  2. My parents. No matter what I do they are always there. Sure, they let me know when they do not approve, but they love me anyway. I still don’t feel worthy when they tell me how proud they are of me. Me? Proud? I’m trying to listen and believe. My mom is never wrong!
  3. Our continued health. My mom is doing quite well with her chemotherapy and we’re hopeful she has many, many more years ahead of her. Megan, Amanda, & I have all caught colds this year, but not H1N1 {knock on wood}, so it could be worse.
  4. Graduation! That is right. I am graduating THIS YEAR not next! December 19th is my last day of class and I will be receiving my BA in Accounting. Woo Hoo!
  5. My writing. I am participating in NaNoWriMo this year. My book is based on many of the feelings I keep buried inside. Thanks to Heather and her wonderful insights on my recent excerpt I have had a breakthrough even I didn’t realize I was having. Of course this may mean I will need to see a therapist when I am done, but that could be a really good thing for me!
  6. Dwayne [DH]. He has taught me so much about myself and family, self-worth and people. I don’t always do what he suggests, but I am learning ~ the hard way, of course.

I have never felt happier than I do right now. I’m not worried because I know something good is waiting just beyond the horizon.

What about you? What are you thankful for this year?

    @angie,

    It’s hard when you lose a parent. Mine are both still around, but my in-laws have both passed. I find that remembering the good times helps.

  2. Great spirited post I like the idea, it’s a great way to appreciate things as well.

    1) My Kids
    2) My Family
    3) My Health
    4) My Friends
    5) My associates
    6) My success

    @Extreme John,

    I love this time of year. And it’s always good to remember what we have instead of focusing on what we don’t. What really makes us happy and complete are the people we love and care about. Oh, no, I’ve become one of those mushy people! lol 😉

  3. Well dangit if you aren’t making me misty, Anne! You sound healthier than most of the people I know. Happiness is impossible without appreciation, and you seem to have a firm grip on your blessings. One note: I think you should audition for a role in a local play this year. Perhaps “Hair”? This is, after all, the dawning of the age of Aquarius, the age of Aquariuuuuuuuuus. AquAAAAAAAAAArius… Ah Quar EE Uhs! (stop me)

    @Heather Kephart,

    Now, don’t you start that. You’re gonna make me cry, then my eyes get all puffy and, trust me, that is not a pretty sight! 😉 I might be in denial, but I can’t help but have this really good feeling lately. And my hair is really long, so maybe that’s a thought. If only I could act, and sing. I could bluff it, ya think? lol
