I Am Thankful

I decided to do a thankful post today because I won't be home next week to do one. I have many things to be grateful for, both big and small. I'm afraid sometimes that I am selfish and people don't realize that I really am a thankful person. So here is a short list of 20 things, in no particular order:
1) Joshua, who loves me unconditionally
2) Annabelle, because she teaches me patience
3) That they are putting in a stop-light at the intersection to our area of town
4) That gas has dropped to $2.29/gallon, almost $2 less than when we moved here in August
5) I have a home to live in
6) Josh has a good job and I have the option to stay home with Annabelle
7) I grew up in a wonderful place that I LOVE and I consider it "home"
8) I have a place to call "home"
9) An amazing extended family
10) I have people how love me and tell me that everyday
11) Base Camp Cafe which provides me with my favorite meal whenever I stop by or call
12) I have a bestest friend (Josh), and a best girlfriend
13) Coupons!
14) Musical talents I have
15) Airplanes that are going to take me home for the holidays
16) 3 siblings who are so different but amazing
17) My parents who have always provided for us kids and taught me humility (I don't mean they are humiliating, they are just humble)
18) The song Chicken Fried,(minus the references to alcohol) because it reminds me of what is important in life and that I am most happy just enjoying family and "home"
19) I live in a free country
20) I can have an eternal marriage

Happy early Thanksgiving. And don't forget to think about what YOU are thankful for!

What time are you going to be in Drummond on Sunday? I have to leave probably after church :( I wish I could stay for Thanksgiving, but I have to be back for school on Monday. I'm guessing you probably won't be in town until later, but let me know! It would be so fun to see you!!!
