Gratitude Attitude


I’m taking the rest of the week off to overeat and shop :) But in the spirit of Thanksgiving I wanted to give a little thanks.

I am thankful for:

My husband being home. Because of economy issues and no jobs my husband spent the last year working in Texas, while I stayed in Utah with my kids. That was a very long year. But on Halloween my husband started a new job 7 minutes from our house! Having him home is positively luxurious.

Health. I just went through a bout of staph infections with my kids. They caught mrsa—the antibiotic resistant staph. People die from mrsa! I know I’m being dramatic, but it really scared me. But I’m so grateful everyone is healthy now, because I know there are plenty of people who aren’t.

Creativity.  Is it weird that I love being creative? Whether it is writing or art, creativity fills the empty spaces in my life. I’m so grateful that I have time to do what I’m passionate about and a husband and kids that believe I’m capable of creating worthwhile things.

Happy Thanksgiving

-Angie

It's not wrong at all to be grateful for creativity! And that's so great to be with your hubs. You are a strong woman! I don't know how I would be able to handle the distance.

You are not being overdramatic--any time kids are sick is time to worry. I'm so happy they're all healed up now. Have a wonderful time with your family this Thanksgiving!
