Things I am Grateful for from 2013

When I was younger I used to tear a piece of notebook paper with frayed edges from my school notebook during my Christmas break. I would write down all of the things I was thankful for for that year. I haven't done this since the late 90's but thought of it recently. I decided to do it this year and hopefully do it from each year on! So here it goes:

  1. 34 months with our amazing girl. So far the 2's have been my favorite and I'm so excited to see what else comes!
  2. A stronger marriage
  3. Another year with our golden retriever
  4. Friends and Family
  5. Our daughter having two awesome sets of grandparents who love her and are a part of her life even though they are 9 hours and 14 hours away!
  6. Counseling
  7. Exercise
  8. Being able to afford the above two things
  9. A new adventure in a school nurse job
  10. Being able to quit my hospital job
  11. Being able to fix our broken motor mount, 02 sensor, struts, shocks, tires, and more on our cars without having to charge it - even though it sucked
  12. Being home when our hot water heater burst and also when it had a gas leak - things would have been so much worse had we not been home for both.
  13. Being debt free (again)
  14. Learning to stand up for myself more 
  15. Books 
  16. Obtaining my Childbirth Educator Certification
  17. Learning more about myself and steps to change the things I need to change
  18. New opportunities for family members and friends
  19. Realizing what I am good at doing (more to come on this in January)
  20. My husband getting recognition for his work
  21. Another year here on earth!

(I feel I am forgetting some but that is it for now! I might have to edit it and update later!)

What are some of the things you are thankful for this year?
