Think About It Thursday: Five Thankful Things

Think About It! ThursdayToday’s Topic: What five things are you most thankful for?

I’ve been so busy that I haven’t had a chance to participate in TAIT but hopefully I can get back to doing these again. So what am I thankful for right now?

  1. Tim – He’s my rock. He’s taken on so much especially after my back surgery and constant pain. He has a good paying job that provides the necessities and a touch more for fun stuff. Plus working from home means he’s available to kiss a boo boo, tickle a munchkin, and catch the escape artist, err, I mean puppy. And don’t forget that he does a lot of the grocery shopping and he taught me how to cook as I lacked that skill when we married.
  2. Our boys – They drive me nuts every once in a while but they are growing into great kids. And they’re asking for a sister, two preferably. I wondered why they wanted two sisters and Drama King blurted out, “So they can talk to each other and not bother us with that makeup stuff.”
  3. The freedom to homeschool – I love that we have the option to homeschool our children. Our family would be a mess if we were forced to force our children into the public school system. We know that from experience.
  4. Our blog – I love having the opportunity to share with our readers. It’s also provided a few extra bucks here and there but manly it gives me a place to talk about me. Oh, that made me think of the song, I Wanna Talk About Me by Toby Keith. I love that song!
  5. Technology – I spend Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday evening away from home between speech therapy and wrestling practice so my phone has come in handy a bazillion times. The boys play games when we’re waiting. I check Facebook, Twitter and the blog from my phone. I keep in touch via text message with Tim and Grandma Deb. I take notes if I think of a blog post or item we need from the store. Sometimes I’ve even lugged the laptop with me to the boys’ wrestling practice so I can squeeze in some writing when a deadline creeps closer.

Next week’s topic: How do you pay it forward?
