I have been sitting at my computer thinking I should write something. I started writing about how stressed I am. I erased it because it sounded so lame. I had nothing good to say and I didn't really want to complain in a post.

I started day dreaming, which I do too much of, and thought I should think of what I am thankful for and try and get out of my little pitty party. When I thought to myself "Self... what are you thankful for this year?" I had a FLOOD of a response.

So, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, here it is.

What I am thankful for 2009.

1. There really is only one thing I am thankful for. Everything else is a product of this one thing.

My wife, Amy. She is awesome. I know it. Everyone who knows her knows it. I know I scored big time when I married her. When I look back at my life before her and compare it to now everything is better. She made it better. When I look at my future it only gets better. The thing that is stressing me out right now doesn't really even matter. If it doesn't work out like it is supposed to it wont make a difference. I know she is there for me no matter what and I for her. I know there isn't anything too big or small that we cant beat or accomplish together and that gives me so much confidence. It gives me so much confidence it is empowering and makes me feel like I can do anything. So, when I used to sit around and daydream and daydream of what I wish my life would be like, I would dream about this one. The one I have right now. And that is something I am very thankful for.
