My Version of Thankful Thursday

I am thankful for my large family because without them life would be boring.
I am thankful for my small, cluttered...falling apart house because without that I wouldn't have a home.
I am thankful for my handsome best friend, my hubby...because without him, my life would not be fulfilled.
I am thankful for my loads of laundry every day, because without it I wouldn't know how to wash clothes so well.
I am thankful for the broken ceramic tiles in the dining room to living room because without those...I wouldn't stub my toe every day.
I am thankful for my morning 24 oz cup of coffee from Speedway (best coffee BTW) because without that...my day wouldn't begin on the right note.
I am thankful for the days of rain because those are the days that I get to "connect" with my kids the most!
I am thankful for the raccoon that gets into the trash every night because at least I know that I am feeding an animal that would starve if he didn't eat our garbage (one mans trash is another critters treasure)...even though we have to clean it up every morning.
I am thankful for the constant calls on my hubby's work phone because at least he is getting work (god I hate that ring tone)!
I am thankful for fall scented candles and plug ins because this summer has been a bust...at least I can look forward to the fall.
I am thankful for all the poopie diapers that I change everyday because without those I wouldnt know the smell to the above (scented candles).
I am thankful for the Pediasure and stage 2 baby foods stacked up in my cupboard because it reminds me that Kenny is a survivor!
I am thankful for the constant...every day...therapies, doc appts., meeting with specialists because without those Kenny would not be progressing the way he is and will be.
I am thankful for summer homework for the kids, because without it...I wouldn't get the opportunity to tell my kids that they are getting older and I shouldn't have to tell them to do their homework...just practice for the school year!
I am thankful for the "lack of vacations" we, as a family, have endured because without them my kids cant bug us to "go back" to where we went on vacation.
....and lastly...I am thankful for hoping and dreaming because without those I wouldn't hope and dream for a better life (Come on Extreme Makeover Home Edition...let us "move that bus").

Thanks. I was just having one of those moments where I had to be sarcastic and make light of things.
Glad you enjoyed.
