I'm having a hard time being thankful this thanksgiving season. We've had a really rough year. Things keep knocking us down though and we keep picking ourselves back up. Determination, I guess that's what I'm thankful for.
I'm thankful my mom is getting a puppy (or two) so that my daughter can play with the dogs she loves whenever she wants.
I'm thankful for help from unexpected places.
I'm thankful for a husband who loves me enough to spend his day off trying to clean house so I don't collapse before Thanksgiving actually gets here.
I suppose I'm even thankful for having a job, even though right now, they aren't on my Christmas "nice" list.
I'm thankful that life keeps us on our toes so that we keep a close relationship with God. Although, not so thankful that most of my prayers start with Dear God, I don't know what to do...
I'm thankful for family recipes and holiday traditions.

I'm thankful for a short work week next week.
I'm thankful for the 4 friends I actually talk to on a regular basis and the 12 I hardly ever talk to but still love me anyway.
I'm thankful for pepsi, and blogging, and the other small things that I find peace with sometimes.
I'm thankful...that even when I don't think I'm thankful enough... I can still find this small list of things to be thankful for.
