I'm thankful for the counselor we found.
Most of all, I'm thankful for Grey Goose vodka Cosmopolitans.
My two wonderfully awesome children who bring joy to me just by being there. We definitely did something right.
SI - words cannot express how much this place and the incredibly generous people here have helped me through this nightmare.
My husband- who is out of the fog and working so hard on himself and on being a better person for both of us.
Hope. It keeps me going.
Edited because my iPhone has crazy autocorrect.

I also had a really great yoga class at lunch. Can you tell?
I am thankful that we are all reasonably healthy, (knock on wood).
I am also thankful my H had a little "procedure" recently, and that we'll be reaping the benefits of that soon.
And finally, I am grateful that while my H went off his ever-loving rocker this year, it seems to have been temporary, and that it looks like we may emerge out of this even stronger.

I edit, therefore I am.
1. My friends and family for their support in this time of need. Not just in regards to the discovery of my WW's Affair, but for me in unemployment and struggle to find a decent job.
2. I'm thankful for my children. Who don't know because one is a toddler and the other is soon to be 5. Their enthusiasm for love and life is unmatched and reminds me of the joys of life despite my own malaise.
3. I'm thankful my wife is willing to work on these issues to reconcile my family. I'm not sure if it will happen, but if it doesn't, I'll know that I did my best to make it happen. No shame and no regrets.
4. I'm thankful for the counselor we found.
5. I'm thankful that the year is coming to a close. Easily the worst year of my life. I'm doing what I can to rebound from this bottom.
Hoping you all have a decent week. I'm getting there.
I'm thankful that right now my H is patiently giving directions to my parents to go pick up our daughter tomorrow from college while our son writes a college paper.
(You'd have to know us to realize how amazing that all is!)
And we'll all be together tomorrow night, with my H the happiest and most at peace I've ever seen him and our M the rock upon which we are building our new lives.
And I'm currently eating chocolate!
Eta--and of course SI

-Geez, I forgot to buy a turkey..
Speaking of, everybody make sure to take them out to defrost today.....
It's in the brine!!!
I am thankful to be leaving to travel through horrible weather, overstuffed airplanes, and crowded trains to go to the opposite coast to visit my FWHs relatives for Thanksgiving. Three days after we made these reservations, we separated. I was not sure if I would ever see them again.
I am thankful for my OCD, pulling her hair out, overly stressed boss who drove me crazy today. She is also the person who let me cry in my office, take a break to walk to the sea when I was weak, and ignored my swollen eyes for months on end when I couldn't talk about it.
I am thankful for my MC who taught us to talk to each other again in a way that was not surface only.
I am thankful for Retrouvaille who taught us to explore each other's feelings and try to understand them at least one time every day.
I am thankful that my FWH, even in the midst of screwing up tremendously, always realized that he would never have someone better than me, and who kept coming back when I tried to drive him away.
I am thankful that grace allows me to continue to keep trying for the marriage that I want, even when my pride goes splat.
I am thankful for every person here at SI. Even if I don't agree with you, you offer support, a willing ear, and a different viewpoint to reflect upon.
I am very grateful for the Menz in the Betrayed Men's Forum. When I need a laugh, or a dose of reality, or testosterone, I lurk there. Pay No Attention To The Person Behind The Curtain!
I am grateful for life. And milk chocolate, which makes life SO much more tasty!

I am thankful that deep down, somewhere, I know my BW still loves me.
I am thankful for my beautiful daughters.
I am thankful to still live a comfortable life, strife-filled as it currently is.
I am thankful to have a job that provided me the ability to buy an XBoxOne and PS4 with cash.
I am NOT thankful that I have not had the time to play either of them yet, however I AM thankful to have grown enough to know that there are more important things than video games.
I am thankful for coworkers who keep a lookout for COW and give me a heads up when I should avoid a particular room or hallway.
I am thankful to still be able to play hockey at my advanced age of 33.
I am thankful that BW continues to stick with me.
I am thankful for Reel Big Fish’s Greatest Hits, because that CD has gotten me through a lot of dark days.
I'm thankful for all of you
ETA...yep I'm not 47 anymore...why change it now
