Ok ok Natalie. I'm thankful for this forum and those of you who are helpful and willing to share. As well as everyone who makes this a fun place. I'm especially thankful that I'm still working in this tough economy although that may change this summer when we naturally slow down. Fingers are crossed on that one.

Generally there's too much to list so we'll go with that. I should give a special grateful thanks to my g/f. She wont see it but if I were her I would have shot me a long time ago lol. And I'd like to be grateful to Mother Nature but she keeps screwing me over with snow storms on the day that I have the worst drive of the week. Thanks MN I hate you. j/k I always get nailed my her when I say that.

Aww I'm sure she's got her reasons why she's staying around
And hey don't get upset we've got some ugly ice coming down the last 3hrs now and I'd trade that in for some good ole CO Style blizzard any day right now....I miss the snow from there to be honest with ya

I'm thankful that I don't live next door and within earshot of iamntbatman's music! J/K

I'm grateful for so many things. I'm fortunate to have a group of friends that I can count on, though thick and thin and that I have a mother who I enjoy talking to on a daily basis. I'm grateful that my family lives by creed that "blood is thicker than water" and that my nephews think Aunt Kymmie is the "bees knees" and love to hang out with me. Extremely grateful that I own my own home and that it's within walking distance to the beach and that I'm able to surf and play in the water anytime I please. I'm grateful to have a boyfriend who loves and supports me. Grateful that I share my home with animals that shower me daily with unconditional love. I'm grateful to have this forum to share in threads, just like this one.

Natalie, thanks for starting it. :)

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Mine is cliche, but I'm very thankful for my family...mostly my little sister. She's the best companion anyone could ask for. My friends are amazing. My cat, who is my first pet. Though he often tests my patience, I miss him a lot.

I'm thankful our winter has been really mild so far! No more waiting outside for a bus in -30 weather. I can still go out in my fall coat. :)

There are so many things in my life that I love and am thankful for and happy about.

I love and am thankful for my husband. He's been by my side since I was just a teenager actually and I've been 29 for over a decade at this point! He supports me in all, including helping to do so much hard work that is related to my horse obsession.

I love and am thankful for my career and the business that I have owned for 15 years with my father. It's a special part of my life that I get to spend so much time with my dad and I am very close to both my parents.

My dogs are a huge part of what makes me happy and I love them beyond words. They are like kids to my husband and I. There are just not enough words to say how I feel for them.

Then my big hobby of horses... I'm thankful for it and for all that it has taught me. I am happy and thankful to have put together the herd we have. I still get choked up remembering my stallion that I bought as a fuzzy yearling show prospect won National Champion in halter in 2007 and Reserve National Grand Champion driving in 2008. Some of the horses I have and the wins we have recieved would have been just pipe dreams a decade ago. The horses have also "connected" me to most of the friends that I'm closest to.

Then to conclude this post, that I could turn into a novel, I am thankful for and happy about re-discovering the aquarium hobby last summer. We got into it again because I needed a distraction and a relaxing hobby (was diagnosed with lung cancer, never had smoked, but had surgery and should be fine from now on -- it was like a 1 in a million type of lung cancer and I'm "just" 41 now). The fish kept me sane when I was so scared. Instead of devoting myself to full time worry about dying (thought I would) and what would become of my family and horses, I just read books about fish, planned future aquariums. I mean, I seriously day dreamed about fish in the PET-CT scan machine LOL! Crazy, but it's what got me through and has snowballed into something both my husband and I enjoy so much (and man, so much easier / less stressful than horses).

What a great thread. I really have a lot to be thankful for but first and foremost is my great family. Every family has their "issues" and we've certainly had our ups and downs but at the end of the day, any of us would take a bullet for each other. That's pretty great.

And my bf of the last 4 years. He's the most patient, caring all around great guy that I've ever known. It took me a long time to find him and when I decided I wasn't looking anymore - there he was.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
