Happy Tuesday. It’s another addition of Thankful Tuesday. So let’s get started
I’m thankful for… My In-laws. I’ve been blessed with not just one set, but two sets of in-laws. Both families are beyond amazing. They’ve given me the most wonderful husband to share my life with. They’ve accepted me for the person I am, and have welcomed me into their families with wide open arms. They are such kind, loyal, fun & heartwarming people. They’ve been there for me when I needed a good laugh or a hug when I was feeling lousy. I know that not everyone married couple gets along with his or her in-laws, and I feel grateful that even with distance between us, our bond still remains just as strong, if not stronger. I know it’s not easy on them with Joshua & me living oceans away… but trust me, if I was rich I’d fly them here in a heartbeat. Bev, Leo, Michelle & Steve: Thank you for all the wonderful memories we’ve made throughout the years. Love you all ❤
I’m thankful for… Having a roof over my head. To some of you this may seem like a dumb “thankful for”, but if you think about it… is it really? With the way the economy has been over the years, many people have lost their jobs, and without a job what income do you have? It’s heartbreaking when you hear stories of people who have lost their home because of it, who are now living in a shelter. I can’t help but feel sorry for them, especially for the children. No one deserves that life. This goes back to a previous post of mine about not taking things in life for granite. One day you can have it all, and the next it can be taken from you. I can’t put it into words how thankful I am for the job my husband has. It supports us, and lets us live life to a certain way.
I’m thankful for… Sense of sight, hearing, touch, smell & taste. Sight for letting me see what the world has to offer in color. Hearing for the “I love you” my husband tells me day in & day out. Touch for letting me feel the rain on a rainy day, the wind on a windy day, certain textures of everyday life. Smell for the beautiful scent of candles & perfumes. Taste for letting me enjoy the sweetness in fruits, the spices in Mexican dishes, and the savory in vegetables & meat.
