Yes, I am thankful for oil. Mainly the oil fields. If it weren't for the oil fields my husband would be unemployed and I'm not sure where we'd be or what we'd be doing. Even though Kirk has been working in the oil fields for almost a year now I am no where near an expert at knowing what exactly goes on there, but he is good at what he does and it provides us a steady income so I'm happy! :) Way to go Kirk!!!
