Thoughts on Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is not my favorite holiday. I love holidays, and celebrations, but I cannot say that I am in love with Thanksgiving. Really, I have always thought of Thanksgiving as more of a means to an end, the segue into my favorite holiday, the weekend we decorate for my favorite holiday, and so on...
Thanksgiving is a good reminder that I need to work on being more thankful for what I have right now. Sometimes it's hard to remember to be thankful for what you already have, especially when it's so hard not to think about what you want. But, I have a lot to be thankful for:
My husband-Josh is so perfect for me. God gave me the perfect match in Josh, and I am so grateful for him.
My husband's job, and my job
Family and friends
Our paid off car (yay!)
Our home
Our health
Our church
My I-phone
Tivo (I like my shows:-))
Holidays with family

I want this Thanksgiving to be a reminder to give thanks for all the wonderful things I have been given. I am truly blessed!
