5 Things I Am Thankful For

   5 Things I Am Thankful For:

1.  My diabetes and my bad neck/back
        I am a human pin cushion and can't stand up straight, but I could have a lot more to deal with.

2.  My terrible singing voice
        I can't carry a tune in a bucket, but I can speak out and give my opinion, cheer my kids on, and tell them I love them.

3.  My loud 6:00 am alarm clock
        I want to hit it with a hammer, but it wakes me up to the gift of a new day.

4.  My messy house
        I am one box away from the next Hoarders episode, but I am blessed to have a roof over my head and a place for me and my kids to feel safe.

5.  My less than perfect vision
       My glasses look like the bottom of coca cola bottles, but I am able to see the look in my kids eyes when they can't wait to tell me something.
