Plenty to Be Thankful For

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! This is one of my favorite holidays and I think the more people you have around, the better! Others have been posting all day about what they’re thankful for and I believe it’s finally time for mine.

I’m thankful for my hard working husband. He works each and every day to build us a life and I don’t think he gets enough credit for what he does. He goes out and provides for all the cattle regardless of the weather and regardless of how he feels that day. He is also my rock and the relentless listener of my many, many rants. Also, he made the choice to put up with me forever. FOR-EV-ER. And let me  be the first to admit how big of a handful I can be. I mean, I can be a major pain in the ass (especially if I’m tired and hangry at the same time).

I’m thankful for our two dogs, Riley and Bo, that bring light into my life without even trying.

I’m thankful for the farmers and ranchers who continuously provide the food we put on our tables.

I’m thankful for my entire family. Everyone from my parents to my in-laws to my extended family and even to all the friends I consider family.

I’m holding my family a little tighter this year and vowing to myself to simply enjoy life and worry less. Anyone that knows me understands how big of a change it would be for me to worry less. I’m going to try to do these things not only to help my own sanity but in honor of a friend who lived her life to the fullest and was probably one of the biggest optimists I’ve met. Hannah made her journey to heaven Tuesday after a vehicle accident two nights before. I had the honor to know her for five years. She loved unsweet tea, horses, dogs, dancing to name a few of her favorite things. But most of all, Hannah enjoyed the little things in life and made the most out of every situation. All of us already miss her and may she rest in peace. Thank you, Hannah, for bringing a little sunshine into our lives.
