Thankful For The Underappreciated Things In Life

Well Happy Thanksgiving! Now I'm thankful for my friends, family and health, like everyone else! I don't know what I would do without them. But I'm also thankful for a lot of things in our life that some people probably don't think of being thankful for or even mentioning.

I'm thankful that my dad refrained from killing my (now) husband 7 1/2 years ago. I mean I would kill my daughter (if I ever have one) and her boyfriend if she moved out the day after high school graduation and in with her guy while I was at work without telling me. But my dad didn't, and because of that I have a husband and father of my children that I wouldn't trade for the world. So thanks dad!

I'm thankful for small towns. Only in a small town would it be perfectly acceptable for a pregnant (but still just looks like a beer gut) woman to go to the gas station in her slippers on Thanksgiving morning (at 6am) to get the ads and donuts without any judgement from the cashiers! Thanks Underwood!

I'm thankful for my stretch marks. I know I talk about them a lot, and I really am not a fan of them on most occasions. But I'm thankful for them, because there was a point that I never thought I would get to feel a baby grow in my stomach and cause those. Who knew we would become so good at making them! Practice makes perfect! So thank you Freddy Krueger tummy!

I'm thankful for Dayton's Austism. Weird, right? Well lately I've had all of these different pages on Facebook show up that are for kids with cancer. Some are doing well, and unfortunately some aren't. It breaks my heart to see these and can't imagine the strain it puts on these families. Yeah, Dayton doesn't talk, has a shit ton of sensory issues and is self-abusive, but he isn't stuck in a hospital or has an unknown future of treatments ahead of him. So thank you Autism!

I'm thankful that I took a leap and started this blog and that I have real life people that read it! It has been the best therapy anyone could every ask for and I love it! I've realized that sometimes in life you can't have a 5 or 10 year plan, because things can change in a blink of an eye. So for now; I work for my kids (let's be real, they're in charge most the time), I love my family and I write!

If you took the 3 minutes it takes to read this post, please like it and share it with a comment of something you are thankful for that people might not consider on a day like today! I can't wait to see what you guys post!

Teaching Kayden how wonderful the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade is! He loved it!
