Today, I am thankful that we could afford a nice Thanksgiving and can afford a nice Christmas.
Our financial situation is a lot better this year than in years past. I'm still working on getting a job of my own, but Trevor is finally working full-time and really enjoys his job. We no longer have to worry about the rent being late, or about buying groceries. We can buy gifts and treat our friends. Shoot, we can even get little extras every now and again.
I'm not into fancy things, name brands, or new things all the time. But it's very nice to be able to afford some extras sometimes. And it's DEFINITELY nice to not have to worry about bills or groceries, which are the most important things!
Having children will create a whole new set of financial insecurities, but for now, we are settled into the edge of comfort.
And any kind of financial comfort is definitely something to be thankful for.
