On this eve of thanks

I tend to be more of a glass is half empty type of person. That's my personality and I shouldn't have to apologize for being me. So I do have grumpy days or weeks. That's my life.

But for tonight and tomorrow and maybe I can extend it until Monday, I want to throw stress (mostly non-bloggable) out the window and focus on the good. So here are some of goods that I've been thinking about lately:

I'm thankful that we are healthy and that my family members with dangerous jobs are safe. I'm thankful that Grammy received amazingly wonderful news from her doctor a few weeks ago. I'm thankful that my Papaw has kept up his battle with cancer and Alzheimer's and that my Mamaw is well enough to care for him.

I'm thankful that Anna has not experienced any issues with her shunt or Chiari II malformation. I have three beautiful little girls here with me who mean more than anything in this world.

I'm thankful that I have a husband who helps around the house and understands how important sleep is.

I'm thankful that we have supportive, caring and helpful families.

I'm thankful that we are able to live in a nice home on a quiet street in a safe town with a good school system. I'm thankful that we don't have to worry about turning the heat up when it's cold outside or turning on the air conditioning when the house becomes an oven.

I'm thankful that we have good health insurance and don't have to worry about bringing the girls to the doctor when they are sick.

Happy Thanksgiving.
