Why am I so happy?
Let's get caught up from day 1, alright?
I'm so thanful that I sat where I did in class 11 years ago. I have the most wonderful husband as a result, who works so hard, and is so smart, and such a wonderful father. I'm spoiled rotten. I hit the jackpot, and I know it.
I'm so thankful for the craziness that is my life with 4 kids. While some days are easier to be thankful than others, I never take my children for granted. Before Roon and I were married, my cardiologist at the time told me I should think about "more permanent forms of birth control", as he didn't think I could survive even ONE pregnancy and birth. I guess I showed him, and I count myself blessed every day that I didn't listen to him.
I am so thankful for my home. More importantly...I'm thankful we can afford it. Moving to Texas allowed us to have more house for our money, and since we bought at a great time, we weren't affected when the real estate market went south. LOVE my house.
I'm so thankful for family. Especially since I consider my siblings to be among my BEST friends. They're there for me through thick and thin. I don't know what I'd do without them.
I'm thankful for friendships that can stand the test of time. This is my friend, Chelle. We have been friends for 25 years. I'm also thankful for the realization that dark lipstick is not for everyone...
Along with real life friendships, I'm thankful for the friendships I have with people I've never met.
What are YOU thankful for? Write 'em up, and go link up with Shawn, because she's awesome, that's why!
