Happy Holidays, dammit!!! NOW!

I decided the best thing to do this holiday season to counteract the lonliness and depression would be to list off some things I am thankful for... to make me remember.
  1. I'm thankful that even though he's far away, my husband is alive and well and I can talk to him every day and even see him on the webcam.
  2. I'm fortunate that those times, like today, when Noah is sick I can make a phone call and have him seen by a doctor the same day.
  3. We have a home, a car, cable, computers... anything we want or need.
  4. We have jobs that provide for us and are still able to pay off bills and save some money.
  5. I'm thankful that I have family out here. Vita and Joe you guys made my Christmas, even though I may have seemed like a stick in the mud I had a great time and I really appreciate you coming over for the holidays.
  6. I cannot describe how thankful I am for our son. He's been sick and whiney and clingy, but I can't imagine life without him and I admire the strength Josh shows in having to.
  7. As much as I hate the Bush administration, and really both sides of the political spectrum right now... I'm greatful that I live in America "the land of freedom" because for all its downfalls it really is the greatest country to be in. Why else would people risk death just for a chance at the American dream?
  8. I'm in awe of my husband and of the person I have seen him become, everything he's capable of, everything I saw in the beginning that's now being honed and perfected. The excitement I feel about my marriage far surpasses any romantic expectations I ever had about being married and starting a family. I love you, baby and can't wait 'til you come home. Our dedication and love for each other is amazing.
  9. I am actually thankful for problems we've faced and trials we've worked through because I believe without them we would have maintained a mediocre marriage: happy but not scrumtrulescent.
  10. I'm thankful for the future, the fact that I'm well enough to think about even having one. We have been blessed. We're apart, but we're here.
  11. I'm thankful for change. Big and small, though sometimes it stresses me out it's usually for the best. It generally has signified better things coming.
  12. I'm thankful this year is almost over. It's been difficult and life-altering. I'm glad it happened, but I'm relieved it's almost over.
  13. Naptime, which is now over.
  14. And... coffee, it truly is one of the greatest discoveries mankind has ever made. (hehe)
I could go on and on and that fact alone lets me know that this exercise worked. Time to get Noah :) Happy Holidays everyone. Hope it was great! See you on New Years.
