Since I will be on the cruise over Thanksgiving I just wanted to jot down a couple things I am thankful for in my life right now.
*Diesel. My constant buddy so I never feel alone.
*The Ocean. Brings such a peaceful feeling.
*The Internet. I know it sounds bad, but I am so grateful to be able to stay in touch with my family & friends. It really is amazing how it can make me feel like I'm not a million miles away.
*My mom. I love that she let's me call her everyday. Even if we have nothing new to say. It always just makes me feel happier talking to her.
* Our Ward/Church. Even though it frustrates me not understanding anything half the time, & I get annoyed at the random things the old americans say. I truly am grateful to have such a unique opportunity to be apart of a growing bilingual & bicultural ward. The spirit can still be felt :)
*I am thankful for new friends who encourage me & entertain me.
*Being financially stable.
*Traveling. Though I don't like residing in MX, I am so glad for the opportunity to travel so often. Whether it's CA, UT or anywhere else, it truly keeps me sane. ;)
*Jeremy's family. I am so grateful for his family & how much they help & support us. Especially Chris & Amy for always letting us stay with them. Plus Truman & Teddy are the cutest, it will be so fun when our kids can play together.
*Freedom/Government. I love & respect all the people who fight for our country. I also really appreciate how our country is run. Even though I am not into politics whatsoever, & I know things are negative right now, seeing the way things work in Mexico I can't complain about what I have always had. Trust me it's a bazillion times better!
*Family. I love & cherish all my brother's, sister, sister in laws & nephew(s). After being married & away I realize how important they are to me. I care so much how they are doing & what's going on in their lives. I am so grateful for the relationships I have with each & every one of them, & their love & support of me.
*Grandparents. They really just are the best. I look up to them so much. Love them.
*The dvd player in Jeremy's truck. It REALLY helps on those long rides.
*Utah. It was a lovely place to live & grow up.
*Books. I have recently been a big reader. I love the entertainment it brings.
*My Dad. For always supporting our family & being the best example of what a loving, humble, honorable man should be. For giving me everything I ever dreamed of.
*Jeremy. For being the best husband ever! For always making me smile. For always letting me escape from Mexico to see my family & friends. For being so easy going & happy all the time. For not always saying or doing what I want, but being what I need. For always pushing me to be better. He truly makes me a better person. He is my best friend & so easy to live with. For loving Diesel more than I do.. haha. For working hard, & letting me spend his hard work. For doing the dishes, I really hate to do them. For loving & supporting me. I truly am so grateful I married him.
Im sure there are a million other things I am grateful for, or should be thankful for, but those are just the ones that came to mind. Even though I complain a lot about living in Mexico I still am grateful for what I have or have had.
Here is a sneak peak of our recent family pictures with Kelli!
Hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving!
