There's a poem about being thankful where it turns all the bads into goods... so instead of writing about the obvious things I am so greatful for I can't even express it into words (i.e. my family, friends), I'm going to do my own spin on that poem because Lord knows I need to get a better attitude and quit my whining.

I am thankful for my endless mounds of dirty laundry because it means my family is clothed.

I am thankful for the dirty dishes because it means my family ate a meal together.

I am thankful to pay $45 to fill up my gas tank today because it means I have a car to get me where I want to be.

I am thankful to get out of bed 15x a night when my baby is sick because it means I get to spend a few more minutes a day with her.

I am thankful to wake up early every morning because it means God has given me another day on this earth.

There are so many things I gripe about that, in reality, means I have the life I do and I wouldn't give that up for anything. I have a friend that I call a couple times a week and when I start to gripe she flips it around on me and shows me the good in everything. After I get off the phone with her I always feel ridiculous for complaining the way I do and I am SO thankful I have her in my life. That definitely wasn't a mistake!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I am so happy I have Ty's family to be with tomorrow, but I will really miss my family. Holidays are always the hardest, but regardless of how far away they are... every one of my thoughts are with them.

Thanks for the reminder that life isn't as crappy as it seems sometimes. We all have a LOT to be thankful for. You rule! If you don't mind, since I'm so behind, I may copy a lil' of it when I do my Thanksgiving blog. :)
