Ten Things Tuesday

So I found this fun blog on here. It is Xbox wife's idea, you should head over to her blog sometime and check it out. Anyway, you are supposed to post a list of ten things on Tuesdays. Sounds easy enough, huh?

Today's Ten Things I'm Thankful For

1. My family is so important to me. Not only do I love my husband, but my parents and my siblings are great. I also love my in-laws. They are in support of our choices and a pleasure to be with all the time!

2. My friends are such great people. Joe and I have the fortune of sharing a lot of our friends, which makes spending time with friends even more enjoyable. We love each and every one of them and are so thankful that they are such a huge part of our lives.

3. My job. Even though sometimes I complain about my job, or my pay, or my hours... I truly am thankful that I have a job, especially in these trying times. I am able to do something I am good at, and kind of most of the time enjoy.

4. My puppy. I know, it sounds tacky. But she is our child right now. She is such a sweet puppy and I am looking forward to her growing up, much like anyone looks forward to their children growing up!

5. Where I'm from. I am thankful to be an American. Again, might sound a bit cliche', but I am so serious. I also greatly appreciate the men and women who risk their lives to keep this country the greatest on Earth.

6. Love. I am so thankful to have the experience of loving your best friend. Sounds stupid, but I wake up every morning excited to see Joe. I also can't wait to get home and tell him about my day. It truly is the best! 7. Financial Stability. In this economy, being able to pay all our bills and still have some left over money is pretty awesome. I am so thankful that we are both able to work and "bring home the bacon" for each other!
8. My grandparents. I know I already talked about being thankful for my family, but this is a different kind of thankful. I had the pleasure of getting to know all four of my grandparents. Not many people get to know them all. Although I lost a grandparent in high school, I still feel as though I got a chance to know him as well. They are all such great people!

9. Eat. Going along with the theme, I am also very thankful that we are able to eat what we want, when we want. There are so many people these days who aren't even sure where their next meal is going to come from, or even if they are going to eat. I am so thankful that I can provide for my family.

10. Joe. Joe also gets his own! Last, but definately not last (more along the lines of saving the best for last) is my wonderful husband. I have been with Joe for over six years now. It's so hard to believe that we started dating in those awkward high school days and here we are, stronger than ever. I love him with all my heart, and I am thankful everyday to be in love with my very best friend. He truly is my other half and my soul mate. I am who I am today, because of him.

Well, that wraps up my top ten for this week. Do me a favor, leave comments if you're reading it, and do one for yourself. Make it a habit for Tuesdays! And, (if I could figure out how to link her page to mine I would) make sure to visit Xbox wife's page (you can just google it!) to find out the official rules. I think I am going to just make top ten lists each week, not necessarily what I am thankful for during the week. I hope to hear from all of you! This was a fun post!
