Thankful

by Heidi on November 23, 2012

I didn’t get around to doing a thankful for post yesterday – I was much too busy napping and cooking (food post drafted).

This year I have so much to be thankful for…

Mostly for this guy who never fails to make me laugh, who loves me for me, who rubs my back or my feet without me having to ask and is going to be the greatest father to our growing baby boy. I can’t wait to embark on the next stage of our life together as parents come March and I can’t wait to grow old with you. Quite simply, he’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me.

I’m thankful for friends – new and old, near and far. The people that we have surrounded ourselves with are inspiring, caring, and smart people that I look forward to having as good influences on baby Schmidt’s life in the years to come. They have been there through thick and thin and I couldn’t ask for a better circle of pals!

I’m thankful for family. I’m thankful we get to spend Christmas with our families this year – especially my beloved Nana who has not has the best year this year. I’m thankful that I had the opportunity to know Adam’s grandparents. I’m thankful our parents are loving and supportive and that both of our families are as excited about our new addition as we are.

I’m thankful for my job. I sometimes get caught up in the negatives but ultimately, I love what I do. I love who I work with and I’m so very thankful to have amazing supervisors who support me and my long term goals. I know what it’s like to be in a position where you have none of those things, so I’m so very grateful to be where I am.

I’m thankful for my health, for my strength. For where we live, for the home we’ve built and the community we’ve grown to love. For the opportunities I’ve had through Junior League, for the people I’ve met.

I’m thankful for all the men and women who serve in uniform – I grew up in a military family and know and appreciate all the sacrifices members and all their families make for our freedom.

What are YOU thankful for this year?
