I'm Thankful For...
A Loving Husband-- He's really the best guy out there, and I tell him every day how happy I am that we are together. We get along so well, and almost five years into our marriage I am still in awe of how easy it is for us. He loves my cooking, rarely grumbles when I ask him to take out the trash, and makes me laugh. It sounds so cliché, but he really is my best friend, and I'm so lucky to spend every day with him!
A Comfortable Home-- Ok, this is more material, but still something I'm very grateful for. We've owned our condo for 3 years, and I still am a bit it awe that we actually own this place! Chicago is an expensive city, and I dream of living here but also someday having a house, but really I'm so thankful for the well-built, decorated and furnished, 2-bedroom, 1,000 square feet that belong to us. Well, belong to us and the bank, but I'm going to look past that part on my list of good things :)
My Family-- We may be spread out over five different states, but I still feel close to my parents and three siblings. We can make each other crazy, but more often we make each other happy. There is a lot of love and laughter in my family, and I'm so thankful for the good relationships we have with each other. Although I would maybe love my sister more if she started a blog of her own... right Laura?
My Friends-- I have great friends, here in Chicago, and all around the country. I could go on and on about how wonderful all these people are, but I'll just leave it at saying I wouldn't be the person I am without having so many amazing friends. I blogged about it before here.
My Health-- Joe and I are active people, who eat well and take care of our bodies. I'm thankful for the strength and motivation to run and work out, and to enjoy doing things like running races. I'm also so grateful Joe has recently started biking, since his bum knee has prevented him from running for the last couple years. I don't take for granted that we are healthy and active.
So I might not have a million dollars or the killer wardrobe I dream of, but I still think I can qualify as being rich. What are you the most thankful for in your life?
