Thanksgiving Post, final in the series but it doesn’t stop here!

I had to work Thanksgiving Day. ::sigh:: I just keep reminding myself that I’m being paid a time and half. Time and a half, Ariel, time and a half! Even still. I hate working holidays! I want a job where I don’t have to work those or weekends. A job that I have plenty of time off but thoroughly enjoy what I do at work. Maybe something’s on the horizon??!! Only time will tell.

November has been a good month. It has brought many good things. It brought my first days without pain in my foot which had been hurting for five and a half months, (and still hurts). It brought fulfillment to my mother’s life long dream. It brought parenthood to my brother and his sweet wife. Not to mention a beautiful niece for me!! =P It brought time to visit with two of my sisters and potential improvement in other areas of my life. It brought its share of challenges and worries but with each of them God has given us the chance to continue to grow. He provided for our every need.

I have really enjoyed doing my “Thanksgiving” posts this month. I hope you’ve enjoyed reading them. It’s kinda sad to seem this all come to an end. I’m thinking I’m going to continue to do one once a month at least. It’s simply too easy to not be thankful and we have so much to be thankful about! Without further ado…

Day Twenty-One (November 21st) : For my husband. My goodness, I feel like I’d be lost without him. This is the man that loves me when I know I’m not being very lovable. He takes care of me. He’s patient when I’m not. He’s willing to take up for me and get mad when people are mean or take advantage of me. He’s the love of my life. His shoulder is where I want to be. Always. He has stepped up and pulled more than his share of our housework with my foot being injured, and sometimes even without complaint! I love this man with all my heart and am so very thankful that God brought him into my life to stay forever. Thank you Lord!

Happy Thanksgiving! (November 22nd) : For God. I wouldn't be here at all if it weren't for my Savior. Knowing that He died for the mess that I am just shows me how much He loves me. I can't even pretend to understand it but I relish that fact. I would truly be lost without Him. He guides me through everything. I can't imagine trying to go through life without Him holding my hand. I don't want to be going through any of the difficult things life throws us without knowing that He is on my side and that He's guiding me through. Thank you Lord for your amazing sacrifice so that I could live forever with you. Thank you so much for everything you've done for me. Help me always have an attitude of thankfulness because I truly have so much. Thank you for everything!

BTW, sorry this is late. Internet wasn't cooperating last night. =\ Anyway, hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

Did I miss it or did you forget to mention...the job offer YOU got this month, too!
Really cool that we start our new jobs on the same day!
