Thankful Thursday

If you know me well, you know that I have quite the little temper. I can get moody and emotional and I take everything to heart. Despite that, I still like to remember that I have so much to be thankful for. I'm linking up with some lovely ladies today to share those things.

I'm so thankful to have a job. Even though it's definitely not what I thought I would be doing, I'm so glad I have a job that will pay the bills. I may not have a lot of extra money to do what I want (SHOPPING!), but it does pay the bills so that I have a home to live in, heat in the winter, air in the summer, etc.

I'm thankful to have my family. Yes, we get on each other's nerves, but I know that my mom, step-dad, and sister will be there if I need them. Not everyone is that lucky.

I'm thankful for peonies. Yes, a flower. Everytime I pull into the driveway or back out of the garage, I see these beautiful flowers (that are my absolute favorite!) blooming, as of this week, and I'm reminded that it's the little things that make me smile the most.

I'm thankful for my little nutjob dog, Mia. She barks constantly, isn't potty trained, and drives me crazy most of the time, but I can't imagine coming home and she not being there. And no matter what mood I'm in, she's always there.  I love that dog.

What are you thankful for this week?
