After my post about being down in the dumps about money I decided that I needed to turn my outlook around and find things that I am thankful for.
I may have to take my lunch to work every day, but I'm thankful I can buy groceries.
I don't get to go out with my girlfriends and shop like I used to, but I am thankful I can keep the water running and the lights on.
I don't live in a big expensive house, but I am thankful for the little house that I bought on my own with my money.
I don't drive a brand new car, but I am thankful that I have a safe reliable car and that even though it was a struggle, I am able to pay to keep it up.
I have student loans that I have to pay off, but I am thankful and proud of the Bachelor's degree that I poured my blood, sweat, and tears in.
My job isn't the most glamorous in the world since I have to deal with poop, puke, pee, and other bodily functions, but I am thankful to have a career that allows me to nurture the human spirit.
I can't wear my favorite strappy sandles any more, I feel as big as a house, and haven't pooped in 2 days, but I am so thankful and truly blessed for the healthy, squirmy baby boy that I am carrying.
