Texas-Houston

Thankful

So... who is at work today? 

Has anyone else noticed that TK doesn't get much action anymore? 

Now- The real question:  What are you most thankful for?  Have you been blessed in ways that you never expected?

    DH and I were talking just the other day... (my Dad just got laid off this past weekend) and it made me realize that we are SO incredibly blessed and lucky that we are both employed.  Not only just employed, but we both truley love our jobs.  We are very blessed. 

    We have so many friends and many family members that have been laid off in the past year and still can't find a good job.  When I think about them, it stresses me out.  I can't even imagine the stress that they are going through.

    I"m working today AND tomorrow! BOOOOO!

    I'm thankful for my friends, family and my life. I'm glad that I'm myself and not some other people with the decisions they choose. I'm also thankful that we both have jobs. He's been looking for a better one and I have an opportunity for a promotion but if we dont get them, at least we dont have to worry about the next dinner and how we are going to pay for it afterwards.

    They sell it at Target. Polka Dot is the brand name of the wine. It is SOOO good! You gotta try it. I think some other girls on here like it too.

    Also, Id like to say Im thankful for having normal happy children in my life- nieces, cousins, etc. My job makes me jaded sometimes and its a blessing to see the smiles on their faces!

    I'm just thankful for the holidays...It's the only time where family is willing and ready to all get together, no matter how busy their lives are Laughing

    I'm at work today (Wednesday) until 2:00 so 5 more minutes!  All I've done is play on theknot.com today. heheh

    I'm most thankful to have my fiance and my family.  I have a wonderful 13 year old and my fiance has an 8 year daughter.  We are very close to our kids and each other and even though we aren't rich and sometimes we struggle we make it and we all know what's most important in life and it sure isn't money, it's love and compassion and honesty and time together as a family.  That sounds so cheesy, but it's true!

    I've been blessed by being able to work with my fiance for a year now and it was unexpected.  i was working an hour away and the traffic and drive and tolls and gas money just got to us so I suggested I work with him at this small company and replace the woman that was leaving and it wall worked out.   We thought it might be weird, but I've been here a year now and it has actually made us closer!  We love it!  I don't like our old grumpy boss, but that has nothing to do with my fiance. haha!  I can't find a new job right now (tried for 6 months) so I'll try again next year and I plan to start college.

    I am very thankful and looking forward to a great Thanksgiving tomorrow.  Happy THANKSgiving everyone!  I'm glad to be a part of this board. Houston brides, rule!!!!!!!!

    peace & chicken grease,
    Sherry
