New Year's Thanks

I didn't do the obligatory "I'm thankful for . . ." post at Thanksgiving. I like to save that kind of thing for New Year's Day as I look back and reflect on the year.

Here are seven things for which I am thankful:

1. I'm so thankful for a husband who is patient enough to put up with everything I throw his way, strong enough to lead our family with courage and sensitive enough to listen for God's direction.

2. I'm thankful for a trouble-free pregnancy that resulted in a healthy son who continues to grow at an incredible rate. I love him so much and am so proud of him!

3. I'm thankful for a flexible job that allows me to be home with Jack and to continue to work. I have the best of both worlds and I don't take that for granted.

4. I'm thankful that God continues to teach me hard lessons about who He is and who I am and doesn't let me off easy.

5. I'm thankful that we've had enough to eat, a warm place to live and more than we need . . . in a world where a minority of people can say that.

6. Having said #5, I really am thankful for tivo. Especially that we got in on the lifetime service option before it was discontinued. Don't judge. Stop laughing.

7. I'm thankful for our friends and family who love us and I know would help us if the rug were ever pulled out from under us. Figuratively speaking. If a literal rug was pulled out from under me, I know that some of you would probably just think it was funny.
