50 Joys In My Life 2016

1. My home. Sometimes we take our home for granted. I loved mine in Westland. We moved to take care of a sick relative, and it turned into a nightmare. In March, we ended up moving out of the prison back into our home.

2. My girls! They're growing into adults. Every day, I see more and more of the adult they will become.

3. My husband! He's the only one that can calm my soul. He is the fighter when my heart needs to be peaceful. He handles things when I cannot.

4. My family. I'm so blessed my parents live ten minutes from me.

5. I'm so thankful for my best friend. She is there to listen to me every single day.

6. I'm thankful that I had a friend to hang out with when I moved out this way. I would be so lonely without you.

7. I'm overwhelmed with gratitude that my daughter's surgery went well. I was nervous about having her under drugs.

8. I love my annoying, smelly, fur babies.

9. I love my covered porch. I love sitting our front and watching life go by.

10. I am happy that I found a church home and along with it a Mom's group.

11. It makes me glad that my girls love being in the local theater group.

12. My great room makes me smile. I love it.

13. My girls are lucky to grow up in a multi-cultural area.

14. After five years I'm still in love with my blog.

15. Thank you to my friends that still drive out this way to see me. I value you.

18. The weekend I spent on the beach with my husband.

19. Food! I love it.

20. Alexa, I love my daily jam time.

21. My big gray couch. You would understand if you sat on it.

22. All of the hugs and kisses I receive from Keira.

23. Weekly dinner night at my parent's house.

24. Freedom from being in prison from another person's mental illness.

25. I'm thankful that my frozen shoulder has healed about 95%.

30. I'm so grateful that my body is allowing me to workout again.

33. I'm thankful that I was able to sponsor a little girl this year.

34. It's a blessing that we're financially stable.

35. I still look forward to our Friday movie nights even if I have to drag my electronic obsessed kids kicking and screaming.

45. The happiness of being able to use a kitchen again. It was a nightmare being blocked from using the kitchen daily.
