50 Things I am Thankful For

It started out with 10 things I was thankful for, but then I kept going.

Here are a few pictures as well of people I am thankful for. If you aren't on here, it's not because I am not thankful of you :)

1. That chicken is only 3 weight watcher points
2. A husband who makes me laugh daily.
3. That our queen size bed holds two adults, a 45 pound
Puggle purse dog,and a human size
Great Dane without breaking.
4. for my shows I miss often & Reba reruns.
5. Friends with the same sense of humor as me.

6. Twilight books and movies.
7. A wonderful church!
8. Youth group students who are shorter than me…
at least for a little while
9. A husband who takes pictures with me without complaining.
10. Edamame & pickles. Not together. I could make a
whole list of foods I am thankful for but I am
trying to keep that limited.
11. Facebook to keep in touch with old friends. Sad, but true.
12. Margarita’s Mexican Restaurant in Clinton.
13. Camp Electric. What? What?
14. Annual “pretty friends” and Memphis girl Christmas parties.
15. Emails and hand written notes.
16. My recent travels: Gulf Shores, Knoxville, Los Angeles, Cincinnati,
Atlanta, Chicago…all within a matter of 3 months.
17. My Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who has been
where I have been and
experienced the pain that I have experienced.
18. Karen Kingsbury books
19. Twilight. (it’s worth repeating)

cousins, grandparents…
basically FAMILY!
22. Thursday Night Bible Study at the Butler’s.
23. Olive Garden. When I am not on WW.
24. Reverb.

sense of style, and married a minister, too.
Not planned. Well, by us...God knew.
35. A sister who will make me money one day and shares
some aspects of my personality. People say we look
alike. I take that as a compliment :)

Now, where is my CD?!
43. Sisters who fought like cats and dogs through high school
but who I can call friends now.
44. A Mom who has a servant’s heart. And, the fact that
she shares my love of shopping doesn’t hurt either.

time I leave his house.
