Thankful Day 18

November 18, 2011

Today, I am thankful for Fridays. Random, yes, but at the same time not so random. I love Fridays, I look forward to Fridays all week. Fridays mean I have spent the week working with clients and co-workers that I really enjoy working with. It also means, I get to spend the weekend with my husband. Oh, how I love Fridays!

Thankful Day 17

November 17, 2011

Today, I am thankful that I have a passion, and that my job is part of that passion. Today, I was able to share that passion with a classroom full of students at Utah Valley University. I am passionate about working with people with intellectual disabilities... It is something that I love, and feel very strongly about. I feel so lucky to be able to work with these individuals, and that I am passionate about my work!

Thankful Day 16

November 16, 2011

I am thankful for Human Rights... Odd I know. But, today I taught Human Rights Part 1 and kept thinking about how lucky I am to have the rights that I have. It's a little thing - but a big thing at the same time!

Thankful Day 15

November 15, 2011

Today, I am thankful for Online Classes. Not just because I can do them from my home office while in my pajamas - but because I am able to take classes from a school in Florida - on my own time. There is one school here that does the classes I am taking, but they only start every other year (i would have had to wait until next year to start them), and I would have to drive all the way to Logan for them... NO thank you! I'll stick with Florida classes in my jammies!

Thankful Day 14

November 14, 2011

I am thankful for exercise. I have been trying to work out at least 3 days per week, and I have some friends at work that I work out with twice per week. As much as I hate starting to exercise, oh and the whole sweating part, I really enjoy working out my body and feeling sore when I'm working out muscles that I don't usually work out. Plus, I feel like I have WAY more energy when I exercise, than when I don't. Who knew I would be thankful for exercise... but I am!

Thankful Day 13

November 13, 2011

Today I am thankful for Skype specifically. We got to Skype my brother, sister-in-law, and nephews tonight and it was SO much fun! It is so much better than just talking on the phone to them! I love being able to see them! The boys are getting so big now! Sarah was a little camera shy, but I'm sure eventually she will learn to love Skype as much as I do! I am thankful that Skype makes it possible for my family to keep in contact with each other, even when they're so far away!

Thankful Day 12

November 12, 2011

I am thankful for toilet paper... I know this seems weird, but this morning I was going to the bathroom and realized that the t.p. roll was empty... I keep surplus t.p. above the toilet on a cupboard... as I grabbed the last roll in the bathroom it slipped out of my hand, and I caught it just before it landed in the toilet... that would have been awful! For some reason, at that time I realized that I am really lucky to be able to have toilet paper in general, and can afford the kind I like. I love t.p.

Thankful Day 11

November 11, 2011

Today, is Veterans Day.... and as such, I am thankful for Veterans. I am thankful for those who have given up much of their freedoms to protect mine. My own father is a Veteran... I am so thankful for him! It is sad that only on certain holidays, like today, do people remember those who fight for our freedoms... Dad, I hope you get your free car wash today! THANK YOU!

Thankful Day 10

November 10, 2011

I am thankful for friends today. We had some friends over for dinner and games tonight. It was so much fun! We love spending time with this couple, so we try and do it once a month or so... and every time we do - we realize how lucky we are to have such great friends! It is nice to have friends as a couple. So, Natalie and Taylor - we are thankful for you!

Thankful Day 9

November 9, 2011

Today I am thankful for my co-workers. We had correlation this morning, and I realized that I work with a great bunch of people. I really like all of them! I have been so blessed to be able to work with people that I respect, and have a great relationship with. We sat laughing in the office today, and I was overwhelmed with emotion and love for my co-workers. It also helps that they don't mind having me around! As much as I loved my old job, working from home wasn't good for me... this new job is much better - and having an office environment with these co-workers is truly a blessing! Yay for co-workers!

Thankful Day 8

November 8, 2011

Today, I am Thankful for the chance to Vote! Yes, I vote... I try and pay attention to what is happening in my area... I try to make an informed decision and vote for whomever I feel is the best candidate, rather than whoever has the prettiest/most signs. If you don't vote, shame on you, and you have no right to complain! Not only am I voting for my future, but I am thanking those who fought so long and hard, for me to be able to have the right to vote! Thank you to them!

Thankful Day 7

November 7, 2011

Today, I am thankful for modern medicine, and the amazing people who have worked so tirelessly to keep improving things so that people can remain healthy, get better, and have things they never thought they could. I'm thankful that people go to medical school for years, and get hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt, to be able to help people. I am SO thankful that they are able to help me and my family!

Thankful Day 6

November 6, 2011

Today I am thankful for the opportunity to go back to school. This is a hard one to be thankful for today since I am struggling in my class already, at understanding some of the concepts. Behavior language is a foreign concept to me, so I'm having to work harder at this than I have in any other classes before... but boy am I lucky! I am so thankful to have this opportunity to better myself, to increase my knowledge, and to be able to make a difference in people's lives.

Thankful Day 5

November 5, 2011

Today, I am thankful for my body. My little brother Spencer participated in the Telos Turkey Triathalon. He had to run, bike, and swim. He has been training really hard for this. While, i am not able to do a triathalon, I can certainly walk, bike, and swim... things that not everyone is able to do; and for that, I am truly thankful!

Thankful Day 4

November 4, 2011

Today, I am thankful for the sun! I thought it was going to snow today - but it's not! It's beautifully sunny outside. I'm even thankful for it when it shines right in the little space between the blinds and the window frame right into my eyeballs in the mornings... The sun makes me happy!

Thankful Day 3

November 3, 2011

Today, I am thankful for an office with a window. It is really nice to sit in my office and work, and be able to look out a window at the beautiful mountains and the blue sky! I have worked in offices with no windows, and some with windows that looked out to other buildings... a window with an amazing view is more than I could have asked for!

Thankful Day 2

November 2, 2011( Yes, I'm a few days late - I got busy okay?!)

Today, I am thankful for my amazing husband! What a wonderful man! We have been in love for just over 3 years, and every day I find myself falling a little more in love with him than the day before. Who knew it was possible to love so much!
