30 Days of Thankfulness!

This month I stole a post from a friend on facebook , she was doing something she was thankful for everyday. I decided to do the same and I have compiled them in this blog for everyone's reading pleasure.

Day 1 of 30 Days of Thanks- I am thankful to have my Grandma Mable still in my life, at 71 she is amazing and I would be lost without her help, encouragement, listening ear, wise advise, and crazy moments that make me laugh ♥

Day 2 of 30 Days of Thanks- Today I am thankful to be a free American citizen, with the right to vote and make my voice heard! Although I feel a may not make much difference because everything has just gone so bad, I am still thankful for that right.

Day 3 of 30 days of Thanks- I'm thankful today for the medical advances that have helped me live beyond the years that was prognosed for me a a child, the gift of these years I am eternally grateful for.

Day 4 of 30 days of Thanks- Today I am Thankful for my handsome, amazing, extraordinary Son Colton! Being told I would never have kids, to be given the amazing gift of being a mother is by far the best thing in my life ♥

Day 5 of 30 Days of Thanks- Today I am thankful for my MOM!! I love her more then anything and could not survive without all her amazing help, she's more then my mom she's my best friend ♥

Day 6 of 30 days of Thanks- Today I am thankful for all my friends! New, Old, Cyber, Close, Distant, all of these friends I appreciate and care for deeply ♥

Day 7 of 30 Days of Thanks- Today I am thankful for my In laws, they are amazing people! Loving, supportive, caring, giving, and all other amazing things ♥

8th Day of Thanks- 7 years ago today I married the most incredible man in this world!! He is an amazing husband and father, he irritates the hell out of me too, but I love him more every year!

Day 9 of 30 Days of Thanks- Today I am thankful for my pets, they are like children to me and I love each and everyone of them ♥ It has been a rough year for us with the animals we lost Dog on Sept 1st, Colton's goldfish died the next week, Diesel tore his ACL a couple weeks later,and our cat that stays outside has been missing for almost 2 weeks. But we will get through it all and I will never give up on them.

Day 10 of 30 Days of Thanks- I am thankful for baby's today! I have the pleasure of watching 7 month old Blake today and it reminds me how special little life's are ♥ and I can't wait for Chasta to have her baby in in April!

Day 11 of 30 Days of Thanks- I am Thankful for all the veteran's past, present and future. For without your sacrifice I would probably not have so many things to be thankful for ♥ Shout out to all on my friends list who have served or serving and are married to someone who has served or serving! Not just the soldiers make the sacrifice the family's give a lot too.

Day 12 of 30 Days of Thanks- I am thankful today for my big brother! He's one of my best friends and is always there for me, I can tell him anything and he always gives me great advice, or a good wake up call if I need it. And like all big brothers he has also torchered me the majority of my life. Here's to you Big Guy ♥

Day 13 of Thanks- Today I am thankful for a roof over my head, clothes on my back and food in my fridge. Because I know not everyone has these things and I am thankful I do.

Day 14 of Thanks- I am thankful for sleep! To say I like to sleep is an understatement! And sleeping in this morning felt amazing!

Day 15 of 30 days of Thanks- Today I am thankful that I had Dog in my life for almost 8 years, she was with me in some hard times and the 2 best times, marrying Brad and having Colton. Today would have been her 8th b-day :( I know I already posted a thanks for my pets, but Dog was special and I will never find another like her.

Day 16 of 30 Days of Thanks- Today I am thankful Brad has a good paying job that has provided for our family and allowed me to be a stay at home mom for the past 6 years.

Day 17 of 30 Days of Thanks- Today I am thankful for good Vets and caring people that fixed Diesel today and are taking care of him until tomorrow.

Day 18 of Thanks- I am thankful for facebook, I get to stay in better touch with so many family and friends, plus I get useless information all the time! LOL and I get to post useless info too :)

Day 19 of Thanks- I am thankful for ALL my family! Near, far, close, distant, aunts, uncles, cousins, grandma's, grandpa's, mom, dad, Brandon and Sarah EVERYONE who is related to me ♥

Day 20 of 30 Thanks- Today I am thankful for my brothers girlfriend Sarah. She puts up with my brother and makes him happy, and that makes me happy and thankful. And for reasons unknown to me he apparently makes her happy too! LOL

Day 21 of Thanks- I am Thankful for my DAD, he is my biggest fan next to Mom and he expects the best from me which makes me expect that of myself. I have to attribute most my good health to him, he never let me skip my treatments and before I had my vest he was almost always the one pounding on me. I hated him for push...ing me so hard on my health when I was young, but I love him for it now. ♥ you DAD

Day 22 of 30 days of Thanks- Today I am thankful for the life God has given me. I am thankful for every part of it, the good and the bad, because without feeling and enduring the bad I would not be able to enjoy the good. And I have said this before and it may sound crazy but it includes everything I have dealt with having CF, it's made me who I am, and I happen to like that person :)

Day 23- Today I am thankful for the great food my family got to eat at Brad's parents for Thanksgiving, it was all very yummy! Thank you Janet and Shannon for doing such a great job ♥

Day 24- I'm Thankful I got to go to an awesome SHINEDOWN concert tonight!! It was so great, and as strange as it sounds it was the first time I have been to a concert!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Day 25 of Thanks today I am thankful for my mom's amazing cooking! And time with family ♥

Day 26 of 30 days of thanks- I am thankful I did not go out for black friday, my bed was a much better place to be. I am also thankful I do not have the stomach flu like Brad! He has been up since like 4am either on the toilet or over it :(

Day 27 of 30 Days of Thanks- I am Thankful Brad is feeling better, and that my Mom was able to keep Colton the past 3 1/2 days.

Day 28 of thanks- I am so thankful that Brad did not have to worse of the 2 diagnosis that were possible! And for those that were praying for us ♥ And my mom for once again being able to take Colton tonight :)

Day 29 of Thanks- I am thankful for God and all the prayers he answers for me ♥ And for the ones he doesn't, because I may not see it but he knows what's best :)

Day 30 of 30- Today I am Thankful for Abby, who was the one who inspired my 30 Day's of Thanks! Making speak the things I am thankful for daily has really made me realize how great I have it. And like I have always said there is always someone worse off then you, so be Thankful for what you have daily ♥
