What am I thankful for despite these tough times

October 20th, 2008 at 01:40 pm

For me, worry and guilt come very easily. Seems like these days, they are my only constant companions. And like many of you, they are weighing me down, keeping me up at night and sitting at the pit of my stomach like a conference of restless butterflies.

Being grateful requires more effort. I need to consciously remind myself to stop obsessing and pause long enough to be thankful for what I do have, rather than fret over what I don't.

So right now, here's what I'm thankful for:

- Monday is almost over
- The Dow looks like it's headed in the positive direction today

But more importantly,
- My family
- My friends
- Good health
- Having food on the table, clothes on my back and roof over my head
- Still having my sense of humor to get me through these tough weeks
- The supportive network of fellow bloggers in saving advice...who reminds me that I am not alone

Thank you all! And have a good evening.

    It's so true. Money is important; it can help us through tough times and difficult decisions. But in the end, it's only money.

    I'm thankful for similar things as well. That's what helps me get by each day! Sure wish I could get DH on board to see past the fluff...
