So Much to Be Thankful For...

Happy Thanksgiving!
I have so much to be thankful for in my life. Here is my list for 2009:

1- The most important thing in my life is my husband. I am so thankful for the 7 years we have been together and look forward to spending the rest of my life growing old with him.

2- My parents. They have been everything to me for the past 27 years. I still talk to and/or see them both everyday and cannot imagine it any other way.

3- My little brother. He has grown into such a wonderful man. Jeff and I have always been the best of friends and I would do anything for him.

4- My wonderful new sister-in-law. Jeff could not have done any better if we had hand picked him ourselves (we actually did pick her out, lol).

5- I am so thankful for my friends. I don't know what I would do without these amazing women and men in my life.

6- I am thankful for a job that I love. For being able to teach in the school and community that I grew up in. I am so thankful for all of my students.

7- I am thankful for my beautiful home.

8- Being born and raised in North Carolina. We have the best of both worlds with the mountains and the beach right here in our own state.

9- I am thankful for my curly hair. I know this sounds superficial but I love my curls. I used to hate them growing up but I have learned to appreciate it.

10- I am thankful for my extended family. I have such a large close knit family and I would not want it any other way.

11- I am thankful for my in-laws and then amazing family that I gained when I married Hubs. They are as wonderful as the man they raised that I love so much.

12- I am so thankful for all the men and women that have put their lives at risk to fight for our freedoms and our country.

13- I am thankful for the holiday season and the reason behind it. I love all the traditions that go a long with the holidays and being able to share them with the people that mean the most to me.

14- I am thankful for having food on my table.

15- I am thankful that life isnt always perfect and doesnt always turn out the way we planned for it to.

16- I am thankful that my husband and I still have our jobs and that the economy hasnt affected us too much.

17- I am thankful for the opportunity to coach at the high school level and the chance to work with these young ladies. I love having the chance to share my passion for sports and the self-confidence that they can provide.

18- I am thankful for a God that loves all His children.

What are you thankful for on this Thanksgiving Day?
