Thankful…really

So I’ve been thinking about what I’m thankful for seeing as it is Thanksgiving and we are giving thanks, right?   So as I pondered through the canned answers (family, friends, health, children, blah, blah, blah) I thought I should really think about what it is I’m thankful for.  And although my list may seem shallow, it is honestly and truly what I am thankful for.

I am thankful that we have enough money to live in a house that is safe structurally and enviornmentally that provides heat, coolness, water and shelter.

I am thankful that I have clothes on my back that are new and warm.

I am thankful for indoor plumbing and an endless supply of hot water in which to bathe and cook.

I am thankful I was born to white, suburban, middle to upper middle class family.

I am thankful I can afford to stay home and raise my children the way I think they should be raised.

This is so much more than many people have and I am thankful and grateful it is mine.
