OoPs! THanks Days 7-13!

So, We all know how wonderful I am at remembering to blog frequently... Right.
Here are my days 7-13 of Thankfulness!

7- I'm thankful for my parents and the fact that they would do anything for me to see me happy.
8. I'm thankful to have such a loving and gracious savior who loves me despite my almost moment-by-moment downfalls.
9. I am thankful to have friends who send me uplifting text messages or emails at just the right moment- without even knowing how they brighten my day.
10. I am thankful for my health. This one's difficult, as that's a day-to-day kind of thing with me. But- I am healthy and able to do the majority of things I want to do without issue, and for that I am thankful.
11. I am thankful for my freedom. So many people have given so much for me to be able to complete school, attend college, have a job, and live my daily life without constant fear of mortar attacks... or without seeing armed guards at every corner. I am thankful to the soldiers who have fought and given the ultimate sacrifice in order to ensure that I live this way.
12. I have today off... and for that, I am INCREDIBLY THANKFUL! :)
13. I am thankful to have clothes to keep me warm. I get up every day and lament that "I have NOTHING TO WEAR!" Then resolve to just go to work in my bathrobe, and give up on life because I don't like to wear the same thing over and over. The reality of it is, I have more than enough. I have plenty more than the majority of people with whom I work, yet I whine about it daily.

Maybe I'll do better with the next few.

Month of Thanks- Day 5.

Apparently November is the Month of Thanks. People post something daily for which they are thankful.
I am officially 4.9 days behind on this awesome trend... so I will have to catch up! I'll go ahead and do #6 since it's almost midnight.

Nov 1. I am thankful that I have a husband who loves me and accepts me for who I am. At all times. No matter what.
Nov. 2. I am so very thankful that I live in a land in which I can vote and at least feel like my voice is heard.
Nov. 3. I am thankful to have a job that I enjoy 99% of the time.
Nov. 4. I have an abundance of food, clothing, and material goods which the majority of the rest of the world does not, and for that I am thankful... and also humbled.
Nov. 5. I have parents who love me unconditionally and would do anything to ensure my happiness and help me with anything I need.
Nov. 6. I have in-laws who love me like I am their own child and treat me like I've been their kid for the past 24 years, not just the past 4.

That's it for the past week almost!
I think I like this "thankful" thing... it's good stuff to focus on!!
More later!
