Thankful And Counting

 I have many anniversaries in my life. There's the anniversary of the time my parents tried to kill me in a canoe accident (a/k/a my 10th birthday). The anniversary of the Joplin tornado. The anniversary of my breast cancer diagnosis.

But today, it is my wedding anniversary, the 29th one, to be exact. We have weathered a lot of storms along the way, including literal ones. We've dealt with moving across the country, job loss, financial setbacks, illnesses, aging parents. arguments over stupid stuff, and silences over important stuff. And we have also rejoiced in having two amazing children, taking little trips when we can, working in the kitchen together, shopping for bargains, and much, much love and laughter.

So ten things of thankful? Nah, more like 29 years of thankfuls.
