Family, friends, no stress, ability to give and help others

I'm thankful for my wife and son, my faith in Christ, work and friends.

I get a peace when I count my blessings. Contrarey to the host, I start with money in the bank. Having the savings there gives me a calm that I often need. I am also thankful for the new clothes washer we had to buy when our six year old Kenmore broke unexpectantly. I didn't like having to replace it but we had the money and I am quite happy with new washer. I am thankful that we only have a mortgage for debt and we have a better rate and a shorter pay off date due to refinancing earlier this year. I am thankful for our church family. I am thankful for paid for cars that get us to where we need to go. I am thankful for a faithful dog. I am thankful for a job that allows me to work from home. I am thankful for my wife and our seven plus year marriage.

Glad to see a post on counting blessings, on a PF blog. It's great to remember to do so, and keep perspective to balance any difficulties with the things for which we can be thankful.

For me, the non-money things I'm most thankful for are family, friends, health.

Money is useless if you don't have family and friends to share it with.

I'm thankful for God, my mom and dad, and indoor flush toilets. And indoor potable water that comes in both hot and cold. And the fridge. :D
Hey, these things are luxuries. Just 80 years ago or so, people had to go outside to an outhouse to go potty. Ugh. Indoor plumbing is one of the biggest blessings I can think of.
