I have a lot to be thankful for, especially this year. For many of those around me, 2016 was a rough year, in more ways than one. And for them, I wish them a peaceful beginning to the holiday season. For me, 2016 was beautiful. It has been a roller coaster both physically and mentally, but as a whole, as mentioned above, I have so much to be thankful for.
I'm thankful for a healthy and happy marriage, and a husband who not only supports, but encourages my quirks and independence. I'm thankful for having had a textbook pregnancy, labor, and delivery. I'm thankful for a healthy baby, who has opened my eyes to a world I never imagined. I am thankful for siblings whom I adore. I am thankful for friends who are more like siblings. I am thankful for my extended family, and their overflowing love and support. I am thankful for the roof over my head, and for having a place that is home in every sense of the word. I am thankful for the food in my fridge, pantry, and on my table. I am thankful for living in a world where I have a voice. I am thankful for my bicycles :) While this list has not been short, in short, I am just thankful. For everything and everyone around me.
I wish you all a lovely holiday, and may the rest of your year be merry and bright.
