Here are just a few:
I am incredibly thankful for my family. For V and the children who help me get through life and who are willing to try to live out this crazy dream with me.
I am thankful that my parents are still with us, and that they have and continue to teach me about living simply and frugally.
I am thankful that we have been given the opportunity to transform this neglected house and 5.5 acres of land into something wonderful.
I am thankful that God has given us strength of mind, body and spirit to make it possible.
I am thankful that I have a job that I love.
I am thankful, even though I may complain about finances, to realize that we are rich beyond comparison with most of the world. But I need reminded of that on occasion.
I am thankful that I have a roof over my head, food in my pantry and safe water to drink.
I am even thankful for our crazy pets. They provide comic relief in our days, companionship and are ever on mouse patrol.
And I am thankful for all of you, my friends. You have made this journey less lonely and made me feel that I'm not so crazy after all.
Peace and blessings to you all this Thanksgiving.
