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.
