I’m one of the 800,000 plus federal workers affected by the government shutdown. I’m not going to make this a political post. I’m not going to whine about what me and my family are going through. I want to take a moment and jot down what I am thankful for.
I’m thankful for my husband who has kept my spirits up by making me laugh every single day that we’ve been together. 18 years and counting. He shows me he loves me every day in so many different ways.
My children for the wonderful adults they have become and am amazed at how thoughtful and generous and loving they are.
My sisters for always being there. Loving, laughing and commiserating with me.
I have a roof over my head and food in my fridge.
We are all healthy, happy, and warm.
I am truly blessed.
