Today I am thankful that in this poor economy, my husband and I have good, steady jobs. We are lucky to feel this kind of security.
We have been looking at a lot of houses that are short sales and foreclosures, and it saddens me that so many families have been forced out of their homes.
Even though we don't have a lot of "stuff", we do have a lot of love, faith, family, friends, and happiness. For this I am extremely grateful, and I pray that those of us who are being hit hard by this economic recession can say the same.


  1. Hi Colleen!
    I like this post because I have also been thinking about this a lot lately...TJ and I are so grateful that we have steady/secure jobs in this tough economic time, but more importantly the love and support of our family and friends. So blessed!!
    Good luck house-hunting!! We'll be praying for the right one to fall in your laps:-)

  2. Wonderful things to my thankful for!

  3. Good things to be thankful for! I hope you find a wonderful home for your family.


  4. Yes, we certainly do have a lot to be thankful for especially in this economy!!!

  5. You have such a gift for articulating those wonderful thoughts!

    Hold out for the 2 full baths. We have 1.5, and now that our oldest child is 13, we could really use that other .5!

  6. I am so grateful to be working too.
    I am so sad and frustrated for all of those who are seeking jobs.
