Today, I’m thankful that even though I don’t always love my job, I have one. I’m thankful that we’ve been able to find a way for my wife to be a stay at home Mom, despite having to juggle money and not always knowing how we’ve made it work. I’m thankful for the strength and support of our extended family in helping it work.
I’m thankful that God has provided me the means to support my wife and children.

As you can see, despite best efforts, I typically only post about three times per week these days. Here’s some catchup on things I’m feeling thankful for right now…
I’m thankful for the mothers in my life… especially my wife, my mom, and my mother in law.
I’m thankful that the problems in my life are manageable and that I have the means to be able complain about things like my hot tub cover being broken.
I’m thankful that even though it’s Monday, it’s only a few days until the weekend returns.
I’m thankful that I have a job and a pretty good one at that.
And, I’m thankful for reminders that life is precious and there are more important things to focus on than money, material things, or petty concerns.

Yesterday and today, I’ve been preoccupied with a situation. Essentially, I’m waiting to hear some news… I think it should be great news but I’m trying to tamper my expectations, just in case.
With that, I’m thankful for the prayers of my friends, the support of my family, and the distractions my kids provide from my annoying anxiety.
Today, I’m also thankful for the gorgeous weather, which will provide the perfect backdrop for a nice run/walk today.

Last week was kinda tough because I couldn’t get out of my head. I’ve been waiting to hear about a job I interviewed for and it has been eating at me, but… I’m thankful.
I’m thankful because getting this job isn’t a life or death thing. I have a job already. It pays sufficiently. I have my issues but I don’t hate it. So, if I don’t get it, life will still be alright.
For that I am thankful. And I pray for those who are not in this privileged position.

I am thankful for a good week. I had a solid job interview for a position that would be a nice promotion. I got sweet new ink on my arm (see below). And now it’s the weekend, so I get to spend time with the fam.

Yesterday, I was thankful at work that I knew my stuff and was able to make an important recommendation to upper mamagement.
Today, I am thankful that my boss backed up my recommendation and was very supportive in my current efforts and projects.

These last few days, I’ve been very thankful that, for me, my job is not my life. If I defined who I am but my career, I’d likely have banged my head through a wall at least half a dozen times by now.

Today, I’m thankful that no one pointed out my improper grammar in yesterday’s post.
Seriously, I’m actually very thankful for my job. I don’t always love it, but I have a secure job than provides for our family, an understanding boss, and a flexible and interesting schedule.
I’m also VERY thankful that my wife folded Mt. St. Laundry today. I hate folding laundry.
