I Am Thankful: Days 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, & 13.

Holy cow I'm behind! Still no internet at our house. But rumor has it that it's coming Thanksgiving weekend. (Long story short: My grandma refuses to use any service besides Cox and our neighborhood is brand spankin new- like we were the SECOND people to move into the development- and Cox isn't established here or something since no one has it so we have to wait for them to hook up service for this area before they can get it to our house.. Which will be in a couple weeks.)

Anywho! This isn't supposed to be about complaints!

Day 8: I Am Thankful For... Jobs! So grateful for both mine and Eric's employment. We have both been very fortunate to have consistent employment even with switching jobs. I know many have experienced layoffs and not being able to find a job so I am very grateful for the work we have had since getting married.

Day 9: I Am Thankful For... Technology. It is absolutely incredible. We are able to broadcast meetings and conferences for church, we have cell phones to make a lot of things easier, I was able to get an education online, and there are so many advancements that happen everyday to help improve our lives. One of technologies I'm most grateful for right now is medical technology... Miraculous things are happening in medicine and I have gotten to experience some through our treatments. Seriously, look up In-Vitro Fertilization and see what happens behind the scenes. It is absolutely incredible! Hopefully soon this wonderful technology will help start our family. :)

Day 10: I Am Thankful For... Nature. God's creations that surround us are so beautiful. If you haven't experienced an Arizona sunset, put it on your bucket list. The earth is beautiful and we are all so lucky to live on it and experience the works of a loving Heavenly Father.

Day 11: I Am Thankful For... The Veterans! All of the wonderful men and women who selflessly serve our country so we may enjoy the freedoms we have.

Day 12: I Am Thankful For... Running water! Last night I was taking a hot bath and I couldn't help but think about how lucky I was to be able to take a bath when I want to. And a hot one at that. So many people need clean water to drink, let alone bathe in.

Day 13: I Am Thankful For... My Map on my phone! I know it may sound silly, but I have horrible sense of direction and if it weren't for the map I have on my iPhone, I swear I'd get lost nearly every day!

Whew! Sorry for the lack of posting, but it's so weird on my phone! I'll try to do better. :)

What are you thankful for?
