50 Reasons I'm Thankful . . . After Thanksgiving

After reading Marv Knox's 100 Reasons to Be Thankful on the FaithVillage blog, I was inspired. I originally wanted to write a long list of things I'm grateful for before Thanksgiving. Once again, it came and went quicker than I'd prefer. But that's okay. I'll make it work.

Thanksgiving is more than a holiday. It's an attitude that we should put effort into maintaining each and every day - not merely once a year. While that seems cliché, it's true.

Here's 50 reasons I'm thankful - even after Thanksgiving.

  1. My strong, handsome, faithful husband Micah
  2. My ever-expanding, crazy and beautiful family
  3. True-blue friends
  4. Bambi & Bananas - the cutest pups in the world
  5. Thanksgiving left-overs. Mmmm :)
  6. Treadmills, ellipticals and stair climbers - especially on days it's too cold to run outside
  7. Gateway Church, Pastor Robert Morris, and all the people involved
  8. Pumpkin spice creamer
  9. Days to sleep in
  10. Frozen yogurt
  11. Kidd Kraddick in the morning
  12. Stevia - my miracle sweetener
  13. Life group on Tuesday nights
  14. Leggings, Jeggings and sweat pants
  15. Jason's Deli salad bars
  16. Facebook
  17. Apple products
  18. Reruns of Law & Order Special Victims Unit
  19. Scented candles
  20. Soft toilet paper
  21. Our Home Depot interest-free credit card (without it, we'd live in a shack)
  22. 89.7 Power FM - The Christian Rock music station
  23. Hot bubble baths and long showers
  24. Eye contacts because I'd break my glasses if I wore them everyday
  25. Photoshop
  26. Chlorine to keep our pool clean
  27. Socks
  28. Air conditioning
  29. Cereal and vanilla almond milk
  30. Baylor University and the people who make it such a great school
  31. The 2011 Baylor Bears football team and what they've done to make up for the four crappy years I cheered them on
  32. Robert Griffin III - I might as well keep it going, right?
  33. BPM on Sirius XM - our go-to techno, party music :)
  34. Sweet potatoes

  41. Permanent markers - My handwriting looks so much better with them.
  42. Flip-flops
  43. Garlic salt - That stuff makes anything taste better.
  44. That my husband can fix anything.
  45. Soap
  46. Self tanner
