Because it's almost Thanksgiving

I try to be thankful every day, I try to remeber to be actively thankful when I say my prayers. I am always thankful for my family, my health, and the people in my life.

I'm thankful for a few other things though:

This blog. If you would have asked me this time last year, I never would have told you how much joy and happiness this blog would have brought me. I have met more girls than I ever thought I would, gaining beautiful new friendships along the way. I enjoy coming to this blog to write, I enjoy coming to this blog and reading everyones responses to my posts, especially the posts that are difficult to write. The support that the blogging community provides is a wonderful and beautiful thing.

Stretchy pants. With Thanksgiving coming up, Jesse pants are necessities. I don't even want to think about all of the food I'm going to be eating over the next three weeks. It's going to be incredible.

Netflix. Without Netflix, I don't know how Derek and I would have been spending every night for the past three or four months. We have watched an entire show, started two more, and watch the countless movies. Netflix provides for endless entertainment and I don't know where my life would be without it.

Luxuries. Yes, I realize Netflix may be a silly thing to be thankful for. But I'm thankful to be able to have things like Netflix, to have things like an HD TV, I'm thankful for my job that provides me with the money to have these things. I'm thankful for Derek's job so that he can provide for the both of us. I know there are many less fortunate people that can't afford the little things in life.

Bubble baths. I haven't taken a bubble bath in a very long time, but I read a post last night about how the blogger takes a bubble bath every Sunday night. And it got me thinking that it had been too long for me. So tonight when I get home, I'm going to fill the tub up with some hot water, bubbles, maybe pour a glass of wine, and read a good book.

What are you thankful for?

All awesome things to be thankful for! I'm with you... I never would've thought blogging would mean so much to me. I've already met so many amazing people in just over a month of doing it and I'm so excited to see what else is in store! :)

Oh yes so very thankful for Netflix.

All I can think of when you say strechy pants is the Friends episode where Joey wears Phoebe's maternity pants on Thanksgiving because he complained to Monica that it isn't Thanksgiving without a turkey so she made him a 19lb one he had to eat all by himself. That Joey is a smart fella.

Stretchy pants will come in handy this week. I seriously don't know what we did without Netflix! The blogging community is so awesome and so many wonderful things come from it.

We spend a lot of time on Netflix too! It's fun, cheap entertainment. I'm also thankful to be able to afford Netflix and other such extras.

Definitely thankful for Netflix & bubble baths on the daily...oh & wine.

Rachael @ Pretty in Pink said...

I'm grateful for all of these as well! Today I've been trying to thank God for all the little things and I'm feeling so blessed today. It has really made such a huge difference for me!
