79.  I am thankful for new contacts.  The world is so much clearer now.

88.  I am thankful the pilgrims didn't give up even though it was hard in the beginning.

89.  I am thankful I am not going black friday shopping.

90.  I am thankful for my washer and dryer.  Our thanksgiving service was Sunday night, the visiting minister told the story of how in Mexico there are hot and cold springs right next to each other.  This makes it easy for the ladies to wash their clothes.  One would think that they would be grateful for this, but the story goes that they were not, they just complained there was no soap.

91. I am thankful baby girl has started to sleep through the night, is getting a tooth, and acts like she wants to crawl.

98.  I am thankful for growing in my faith, which continues to be tested.

99.  I am thankful for a week with my children, to play, to laugh, to cook, to clean, to snuggle, to spend time loving each other every second.
