I am thankful for ...

* My daughter. She is a blessing, even on the days she makes me crazy.

* My husband, a great man, the love of my life, and a wonderful father.

* Our families, without whom we would not be who we are, and would not have the life that we do.

* Our health. Sure, I could stand to lose a few pounds, but I cannot and will not obsess over it. I am living my life and I am healthy (minus the swine flu weeks we had, and the secondary infections afterward, but we're better, I swear!)


* Our home. So many do not have the safety and security we do.
I must remember that on those days that my house seems to be closing in on me.

* My husband's job. Yes, I may complain when he gets home so late, but his job is what gives me the opportunity to stay at home with my daughter. And for now, that is where I need to be.


* Our pets. Yes, we have a menagerie, and having lost one of our furry friends so recently I recognize how truly lucky we are to have the crew that we do.


* Friends. Near and far, old and new, friends who are there for you are the truest friends you can find. I'm truly grateful for those who have stuck with me over the years, and those who I have met more recently and turned into my own little support system. I hope they know how important they are to me, and I hope I can provide them with that same kind of support.


* And lastly, good food! Because our Boston Market meal is waiting for us while our daughter naps. And she never naps, but the poor child has been waking up crazy early the past week or so, and then sometimes waking up in the middle of the night, so we'll take the blessing of a nap when we get one. And my sweet potatoes will wait.


I'm also quite thankful for you, my fun and friendly readers. Those who follow, and those who just pop by when you can. Those who I connect with during weekly memes, and those who I stumbled across randomly through that ole' "Next Blog" link up top. I thank you for welcoming me into your world this past year, and I look forward to many story filled days ahead.


Happy Thanksgiving!
