Small Talk Six: Counting My Blessings

This week’s topic on Small Talk Six is “6 things you are most thankful for this year”! (What’s Small Talk Six? Click here to find out.) Following are the things on my gratitude list:

1. Employment.
So many people have lost their jobs this year. I’m so grateful that my husband and I are still working, and I pray that those who have been laid off will find new jobs soon!

2. Health. Many people have been sick this year, whether with H1N1 or just all the other bugs that have been going around. I’m thankful that my family has been healthy so far.

3. My kids.
Yes, they can be incredibly frustrating sometimes, but I love them to pieces!

4. My husband. He’s not the easiest person to be around, but he’s always been very supportive of my career, and he’s a hard worker himself. He cooks, does laundry, cleans, cares for our twins… I know I’m lucky!

5. Friends. I am a terrible friend. I never pick up the phone. I work a lot. But my friends have never complained about having to make the first move. They call, offer their support and don’t chastise me for my neglect. They are a blessing!

6. My faith. Life would be a whole lot more difficult without prayer and trust in God. I’m thankful that I have the comfort of knowing that I don’t walk alone. God has done amazing things in my life, always responding to every need. Thank you, God!
