Being as my birthday always seems to fall on Thanksgiving weekend I thought it would be appropriate celebrating my big 30 that I should take stock and share the 30 things I’m thankful for. Hope you enjoy!
Seasons- Reminding me that everything changes, grows and darkness gets replaced by light.
Luck of my birthdays- 8 years ago Ryan and I met in our apartment elevator in Toronto, 7 years ago he proposed.
Our Health- Other than the few uncooperative bits.
Date nights- Keeps me sane!
In Laws- I am incredibly lucky to say I have the best in laws a gal could wish for. Ryan’s mom and dad are a true testament to love and reminder that not all good things come to an end.
My Family- However crazy they may be ;) the love my family has is incomparable!
Bailey- And all the other fantastic family dogs. She is my cuddle monster and my protector.
That I still get I.D- OH YA
Places- The places I’ve been able to explore, every place teaching me something new about myself.
Nosy Neighbors- They make me feel safe every day.
Family and friends who lend me their babies- When I need a little munchkin love J
My Crazy Twenties
Fears- The ability to face them or to know they are there for a reason and the ability to run.
My Mom- Who allowed me to jump in puddles, dance in the rain and play the same Whitney Houston How Do I Know single over and over, while dancing and singing in the mirrors.
Sunday Family Dinners
My Strength- And not talking physical cause I’m kinda a weenie in that dept.
Friends- Old and new that not only love me for who I am but encourage my special behavior.
Compassion of Strangers
Voice- The ability to speak up when it might be easier to be quiet.
Win A Baby- Even though we may not win, Hot 89.9 contest has renewed our hope.
Sunshine- That warms your face and picks you up.
Rainy Days- For cuddling and sleeping in.
My Guardian Angel- Who has been watching over me and guiding me outta some crazy spots.
Books- That inspire me to write.
Conceivable Dreams- And other groups/organizations fighting for OHIP to fund IVF.
Social Media- I have some pretty cool people and made some great connections.
Lazy Cottage Weekends- When you need to let loose or wind down.
My Man- Ryan who is my everything.
To the people and places that have made me who I am Thank You! I think that it’s incredibly important to take a moment or a few, take stock and truly think about the things in our world that make us thankful.
What are you thankful for?
