A Gratitude List

Wednesday is usually a time for random lists (and you will not be disappointed in that today), but first a rant.

How do all of you feel about "fill in the blank" giving? For example, "Friendsgiving" I was ok with this until I realized A) this is not a an actual date. Apparently you can label any day of the month in November "Friendsgiving" and it's chill. Or, you can put whatever you want at the beginning of giving and suddenly it's a thing. Drinksgiving, familygiving, bloggiving... really anything you want and apparently that's ok, even though it doesn't even really make sense. 

Rant over. 

Anyway, on to the list.

I wanted to make a list of things that I am grateful for this year. 
One of the things that I am not so great at as a blogger is recognizing things as they are happening, for example, holidays, but it's something that I'm working on. It's odd really, because I'm usually thinking a lot about those things, but then it never makes it to the blog.

15 things I'm grateful for this year:

- A place to live
I seriously didn't know where the Captain and I were going to live after we got married. 
- Amazing friends and family
I have been more blessed than words can say in the friends and family department. A gift that I am truly grateful for, but that I don't always express proper gratitude for.
- My Captain
You all knew it would make the list for obvious reasons, but I just want to say that he really is amazing. It's true that marriage magnifies faults and he has been so very patient with mine.
- Words
- Beautiful things
- Ambition and motivation to be better
- Music
- The Gospel
- Talents
I don't always feel like I have a lot of these, when in reality I have more than I keep up with. 
- Cooking
- My amazing readers
I can't say how much it means to me that you read these words of mine, even if you only ever answer my questions in your head
- A place to work
I enjoy being a contributing member of society, I love my job. Especially since the Captain lost his job, I have been especially grateful that I still have one.
- Education
- Inspiring things in my every day life
Like photography and books and art. Things that enrich my life simply by being
- Access to health care
I don't use it a lot. In fact, I try to never use it, but I'm so grateful that it's there when I need it and that it can help me not have to use them later.

What are you thankful for this year?

Thank you all for reading! Hope that you have a fantastic Thanksgiving!
