I know it’s a little cliche to do a list of things we’re thankful for, but there’s a reason they call it Thanksgiving. I had a mini meltdown yesterday over just about everything and I realized after gaining some perspective that I’ve got it pretty good.
I am thankful for Mr. 99, he’s everything I never knew I always wanted, my stepdaughter, I had to wait 25 years to get her and now that I’ve got her I’m never letting go, my dogs The 99 Boys, they’re tons of fun and fur and trouble and finally but never far from my thoughts, my Mom, I almost lost her this year, and she fought her way back, I hope I never have to be as brave as her, but if I do, I know I’ve got the right stuff!

^ I am thankful for my hunny bunny. I am not the nicest person at times but he just looks at me and tells me he loves me. He knows when to hug me and when to push my buttons. He gave me a beautiful daughter and a wonderful roof over our head.
^ I am thankful for my daughter. She cracks me up and knows when to put a smile on my face. If I am crying she will walk over to me, grab my face, and say hi momma. It melts my heart. She’s the reason I breathe.
I am thankful for my parents. They have/will always love me no matter what. They still help out when I need it most. Even when I don’t deserve their love at times they still love me.
I could go on and on about things I am thankful for.

I’m thankful for my babe and all that he has done for me, helped me with, supported me in, and even the times we fought because I know he is worth fighting for and with.
I’m thankful for my monster dog Sprout because my FI is a firefighter and gone a lot, and my dog is great company. Animals are good for the soul.

Ooo, can I play too? We had our Thanksgiving in October, but I’m thankful for:
My FI, we’ve been together 10 years and this past year I had the good fortune to see him achieve his dream of being in law enforcement. It’s been a long road for him to get there and I’m so proud of him! He’s an amazing man.
For my two dogs that bring us so much joy, laughter, love, and understanding. They are both rescues, and we couldn’t imagine our life without them.
Mostly, I’m thankful for my health. In October I went to the doctor seeking help with some symptoms I was having. I first thought that all I needed was a medication change, but it was something the doctor felt could be far worse (read: cancer). While I awaited testing, I was a nervous wreck, wondering, fearing the worst, etc. I received my results last week, and while there wasn’t any visible tumors/cysts, I’m not out of the woods yet. I am thankful to know that I have a Doctor who takes me seriously, test results that show nothing harmful, and knowing that I have an appointment with a specialist to sort out whatever is going on.
I hope all of my American friends have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I was feeling really bummed out yesterday, mainly because I’ve been unemployed for 2 months and I feel totally stupid and useless.
But then as I pulled into Wendy’s for an iced tea, I saw a car catch on fire. As the firetruck arrived, I realized that, yeah, things could always be worse.
So I’m thankful for my car in good working order (knock on wood)!
I’m thankful for my fiance and his unbelievable patience with me.
I’m thankful that my “little” (she’s 25) sister is home from school to spend Thanksgiving with us.
Also, this time of year makes me thankful that my mom is here with us. Two years ago at this time, she was in the ICU at the hospital and we weren’t sure she was going to make it home. Luckily she pulled through, and although her health isn’t 100%, it could be much worse.
