Giving thanks....

It's nice to have holidays where everything is closed and people get to actually spend time with family. More days like that are needed. Thanksgiving has always had a special feel to it. Families getting together, good food, and just an overall warm atmosphere.

My Thanksgiving was great because I got to spend it with those I love and for that I am grateful. I wish I got to spend more moments with my neice because spending time with her feels like hitting the lottery....she just makes me feel so happy.

I'm thankful for family because they mean everything and without them I would be lost. I'm thankful for my boyfriend, and for special dog too.

I have to admit I normally get very excited for holidays but with my boyfriend losing his job there's a sense of fear that is over riding the excitement of the holiday season. I'm scared that in this economic time he may not find another job right away and I worry the impact that will have.

I'm thankful this Thanksgiving that we have each other and that's all that truly counts but a small part of me was looking forward to Christmas which probably won't happen in our little household this year. I know sounds gay but I think we all get excited for Christmas it's something as a kid we learn that we never seem to outgrow. haha

Even with my job our money will be tight because right now there are some expenses that are consuming my income at the moment, and one of those is very important because my dog needs medical treatment for her eye which is costing a fortune. Penn Vet charges $125 just for eye drops! Yeah I know insane right?

That is the thing in life you never know when something will pop up that requires money beyond your budget, and I'm learning each day how important saving really is. But even then anyone of us could encounter financial emergencies along the way that leave us wondering how will we do it.

And I guess no matter how much we might complain about our jobs we should be thankful we at least have one. So this Thanksgiving I'm giving thanks for my job too, even though it will never be near important as my family, boyfriend or dog. ; )

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.
