I Am Thankful For ...

A little late, but here is my list of things I am thankful for:
  1. I am thankful for my health. Apart for the usual coughs and colds, I have been relatively healthy so far.
  2. I am thankful for my future sister-in-law. My brother and his fiance will get married next May. She is sweet and treats not only my brother well, but also my parents.
  3. I am thankful for not having sleep troubles. I used to have trouble sleeping. Now, I sleep soundly pretty much every night.
  4. I am thankful for good friends. I don't have a lot of friends, but all the ones I call friends are worth keeping.
  5. I am thankful for my education, my knowledge. With these, I am able to do my job and be good at it. I am able to continually learn and get better at my job. And I know how to look for information to be a better house-person, a better pet-momma, a better cook, a better travel-planner.
  6. I am thankful that I have a fairly high self-esteem and that I am comfortable with myself. That plus my knowledge and ability to be logical and rational has kept me Me and to make informed, sound judgment and decision. It wasn't like this all the time.
  7. I am thankful for ice cream, milk shakes, green monsters and protein shakes. I got braces yesterday (see it is a combination of #5 and #6) that prompted me to go with the traditional metal braces. Eating is still kinda funky. But I'll be just fine. Suggestions on dental products, flossing, tricks, food will be greatly appreciated.


  1. great things to be thankful for!!!


  2. No tips for you about braces, but being able to have ice cream makes me thankful too!

  3. I really like those thank you posts! Hang in there with the braces, just think about how pretty your teeth will be! :)

  4. I love thankful posts. reminds us all we have it so great here :) Great list

  5. Love your thankful lists, that's so positive to read! Funny note - I always used to want braces when I was little, because all the "cool girls" in the grade above me did. I would pretend to have an overbite on purpose, ha!

  6. Happy Thanksgiving! Keep us posted on the braces. I had Invisalign about 3 years ago (wow, that long ago now?), and I despised them. And I missed the gum-chewing, as I know you will, too. But just think about the end result -- you'll look fabulous!


Thanks for reading! Do leave me a comment or two. They keep me motivated.
