The Thankful Thread

Hi Everyone! I know, I know.  It's been a very, very long time since I last blogged. I am not even kidding when I say that my life has been a tad bit crazy.  Ok, maybe a lot crazy.  There's been a few ups and quite a few downs.  However, I am definitely on the uphill slide, and I am trying to see the positives all around me.  That's why when I saw people linking up with Molly from Lucky to Be in First for her Thankful Thread, I knew I needed to join in.  Sometimes it's good to just stop and appreciate all the good things in your life.  :)

I don't think I could ask for two better guys.  My husband is always so supportive of any and all of my little adventures.  He has this great little smirk that he makes when he is making a joke that I just love!  There are just so many reasons I love this man!  I am so thankful that I met him a little over 12 years ago.  My son is such a blessing.  It's not always easy having a son with Autism, but I wouldn't trade it for the world.  I love seeing all the things that he can do now that he couldn't before.  I love hearing him sing "London Bridges" (his current obsession).  I waited years to hear him talk and now he sings.  Worth.the.wait!

I just took this picture on Saturday.  I loved that my tree was finally changing colors and some leaves had fallen on the ground.  My husband and I built our home almost 11 years ago.  It's a beautiful house, and I'm so lucky to call it home!

I feel very blessed that we are able to take our son to places that he loves.  We have annual passes to Legoland and Disneyland.  We visit the beach and the mountains.  We try to take a mini vacation at least once every other month.  I know many people are not able to do this, so I feel so lucky to be able to.  The picture above was taken just a few weeks ago at Disneyland.  He had such a good time!

I am very thankful for my job.  Things have been very, um, interesting this year, but I love my job.  I don't know what I would do if I wasn't a teacher.  It's not always the easiest job, but it's so rewarding!

I am very thankful for my friends.  I don't know how I would have made it through these past months without them!

So, I decided to add some lighthearted things that I am thankful for also.  I love all my scrapbooking "stuff" (I won't tell you what my husband calls it - haha).  I just got a Silhouette Cameo a few weeks ago.  I haven't played with it a lot yet, but it's on my to do list this long weekend!  I love, love, love Target.  It's probably my favorite place to shop.  I always find things that I need, but I don't need.  You know what I'm talking about, right?  I also love my soda and candy.  These are two things that I probably tone down a little on, but what fun would that be?  lol

Well, there you have it.  I have many things to be thankful for.  What are you the most thankful for this holiday week?

  1. Me too, me too! I just got a Silhouette portrait last week. I've done a few things with it, but I think I need to watch the instruction disk - haha!

    1. I hope you have lots of fun with your Silhouette portrait! I can't wait to play!


  2. Always fun to look back and think about what we are thankful for.
    You are a beautiful home and family :)

  3. I LOVE my silhouette! You can make so much for the classroom with it! How great you take a mini vacation every couple of months - I think that's necessary for our well being! Thanks so much for sharing your list!
