While I try to keep in mind things I am thankful for all year, it's nice to have Thanksgiving as a day to really focus on our blessings and what is good in our lives.

It's so easy to get bogged down with negative thoughts and worries that we sometimes take for granted the things that we have worked so hard for.  I never write down what I'm grateful for, so I thought this would be as good as time as any to give it a try.

I'm thankful for Wade, my family, and my friends who fill my life with such meaning and joy. 
I'm thankful for kind strangers who I may never see again but who touched my life in some way that I will never get to thank them for.
I'm thankful for our jobs.  While no one really loves going to work every day, I feel fortunate to have  a place to go to earn money.
I'm thankful for a house that has turned into our home with our laughter, failures, and triumphs. 
I'm thankful for our little bunny that hops up to me and makes me smile.
I'm thankful for the existence of a future.  While we must enjoy the now, it's a blessing to be able to look forward to good things to come.
I'm thankful to be living in a place that allows me to daydream and follow passions and whims.  I am really thankful for this.
And I'm thankful for you reading this and saying hello.  You make the world feel a bit smaller and make me feel heard.  I can't fully express how thankful I am for that.

Happy Thanksgiving (and happy lovely Thursday), friends!  May your day be filled with wonder and love.

  1. I love this list Kari, especially the one "for the existence of a future". I never thought of it that way, but it is such an important thing to be thankful for. I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving filled with lots of love!
