I get to go home for a month and a half to see my family

I have the freedom to do so

I am having a beautiful wedding to the man of my dreams in less than 6 months!

Besides that nothing… my hubby is about to go to a hand to hand combat school for a month and a half (which is why I’m going home) and I am going to miss him so much. I walk around in a general state of sadness as he works ALL the time and has to spend the night at the station more nights than not (he’s in the coastguard)

Of course I am also thankful for our beautiful little girl.

Great thread!

  1. Having an amazing family who is supportive in so many ways.
  2. A father who works hard and has provided so much for our family. I’ll never be able to express my gratitude enough to him.
  3. A fiance who let’s me be who I am and loves me despite my quirks.
  4. Three incredible furbabies who bring a smile to my face every day.
  5. A kick ass home that’s more like a cottage than a house!

Now I’m smiling!

I love this! I try to do a mental list of all the things I’m grateful for every night before bed, helps remind me that my life is pretty darn good! Of course I’m grateful for the big stuff (awesome Fiance and family, a stable job, health, etc)…. but here are some of the little things: 

1- so grateful that i got a week off this month, it was so much fun to be able to get a bunch of stuff done around the house

2- a bff who is so supportive in helping me to loose weight and stay on track

3- dvr and a bevy of wedding shows to keep me from being too productive πŸ˜‰ 

4- sunshine! as much as i really love winter, and i do, i just loooooove the long days. it makes me so happy to get out of work and still have a few hours of sunshine.

What a nice idea!

I’m healthy, planning to travel this summer, and have enough financial resources to live comfortably, just to name a few.

I love your lists!  It makes me happy just reading them!!

I am grateful for this beautiful day!  I was able to have a patio lunch with my BF’s mom and our two dogs.  Then, we walked a few blocks to the dog beach!

I am grateful that I have a job which I can tolerate and co-workers I enjoy talking too!

I am grateful (and really excited!) that my sister has found a job which allows her to move a mere hour away from me!

Like babyboo, I am grateful that my Boyfriend or Best Friend loves me despite my quirks and randomness!

I am grateful that I have the means to FINALLY pay off my credit card debt!  It took almost 3 years but I made it.

I love the positivity…

1. I am SO grateful for FH and I spending the past year overseas for work and having the finances & freedom to spend the past 3 months backpacking through Asia. I feel like we did something extraordinary together!

2. I am grateful for being able to afford the wedding of my dreams! We are on a small budget by normal standards, but having seen so much poverty in countries like India & Cambodia–I feel incredibly privileged and unworthy of it.

3. I am grateful for not having a full-time job this summer–so I can enjoy and be stress free while I explore work options for the fall.

4. I am grateful for family and friends who I did not see for more than a year. And for the basic comforts that I missed.

5. I am grateful for our families that are letting us stay with them until we figure out our next move. They are all incredibly supportive!
