Here are some things I’m thankful for this Thanksgiving:
My husband – we’re working hard together on this “get out of debt” journey, and it’s stretching us both. We will be better people and a better couple when this is all over.
My children – All five of my sweethearts keep us busy, and bring so much joy to our lives. It’s been special to see them grow as we’ve started on this road to get out of debt, and learn new concepts about money, spending, and saving.
My parents – They’ve been so supportive and helpful throughout our whole marriage, and they’ve continued that these last few months.
Dr. Pepper – No discussion of things I’m truly thankful for would be completely without my favorite drink in the whole world.
My job and my husband’s job – In an economy where getting a job can be difficult, I’m thankful that is one worry that we don’t have.
Blogging friends who quickly came alongside this blog and are helping us start out on this journey.
There are so many, this list could go on and on. But I also need to mention to whom I’m thankful:
I’m thankful to God for all the blessings He has bestowed on us – the greatest blessing of which was His Son Jesus. Sending Him was the greatest sacrifice, and also our greatest need. Because of that, our major problems like getting out of debt look very small and manageable.
Finally, I’m thankful for all of our friends who are reading this blog and giving advice, support, and encouragement. Thank you all!
What are you doing tomorrow for Black Friday?
