Good stuff

Today I am thankful that I get to cook a lot of good food today on basically no notice. I'm just stocked and ready. Sure, no problem.

Today I am thankful that my children are healthy and thriving. They are growing so fast I can barely stand it. I love watching how they change.

Today I am thankful that I have friends who call to check up on me because they worry. Thank you so much for caring about me even though I am so difficult.

Today I am thankful that slow roasting the turkey overnight made the house much warmer than it has been for the past few weeks.

Today I am thankful that Noah and Shanna and Calli are "surprising" me with crepes for breakfast. I'm supposed to wait until they are done to come out. The turkey will be cooked in time for breakfast. It's going to be a great day.

Today I am thankful that I have a secure roof over my head. Not everyone is so blessed.

Today I am thankful that I have the ability to decide who is in my life. I haven't been raped in five years. This trend is very likely to continue because I am now safe. That is not a gift I take lightly.

Today I am thankful for being able to live in this house forever if I want to. I'm just allowed to be here.

Today I am thankful for all the good things I have to look forward to. I'm going to have a really fun life. I am going to do interesting things. Just wait.

Today I am thankful for lots of therapy and medication. Hallelujah.

Mostly I'm thankful that Noah wants me. If Noah didn't want me in his life then this whole house of cards would collapse. I'm really glad he still wants me.
