Counting our Blessings

It only seems fitting being this is the week of Thanksgiving that we take a little time to reflect on some of the things in our life that we are thankful for.  It was a great exercise for the two of us to step back from the hustle and bustle of our day-to-day lives and really think about and recognize the things that mean the world to us. 

And so, in no particular order…

Our Family – for providing the unconditional love and support when we need it the most and when we needed it the least.  You are the wind behind our sail!  We were also blessed to welcome our niece Pria Jane to our family this summer.

Our Fur Babies – for being the best welcoming committee when we come home after a long day at work.  Your wagging tails and pouncing paws have a way about them that can make any day go from bad to better.

The Roof Over Our Head – we are blessed to have a beautiful, spacious home that provided us with a problem-free year.  It’s such a reassuring feeling knowing that we will be kept warm this winter and that we have more than just a house…it is truly a home! 

Jobs – the security of our employment is something we certainly don’t take for granted.  We are thankful for our employers, who give us the opportunity to work for them and provide us with a stable income.

Friends – our lifeline to fun, a lended ear, and camaraderie.  There’s rarely a dull moment and the extra support they have offered us during this Project Money journey is more than we could have ever asked for.

Our Health – knock on wood, we’ve had a clean bill of health this year.  No broken bones, surgeries, or illnesses slowed us down and for this, we are fortunate.

Each Other – the unconditional love we share with one another is something we treasure.  Having one another to share our ups and downs, our joys and our companionship is something we hope to cherish for many years to come.

Summit Credit Union & Project Money – it goes without saying that without Summit and the amazing opportunity they’ve given us with Project Money, we wouldn’t be where we are right at this moment.  Coach Chris and the entire team at Summit Credit Union have changed our lives and provided us with a path to financial freedom, and for this we will be forever grateful!
