Gobble, gobble...

Happy Thanksgiving to all!!

As we approach our national holiday, I want to remember all of the good things in my life for which I am thankful...

1. I am thankful that I have married a man who is kind, considerate, handsome, funny and my best friend. There is no one to whom I would rather be married. Okay, Matthew McConnaughey excepted... :)

2. I am thankful that I have had the privilege to have experienced carrying not one, but two healthy children and witnessed the miracle of life unfold. They are beautiful, happy, loving children and I hope that they continue to fill my heart with joy each and every day.

3. I am thankful for the roof over my head, the food in my cupboard and the clothes on my back. We tend to take so much for granted and lose sight of the necessities, blinded by the wants.

4. I am thankful that I have a job that not only helps to provide for my family, but also allows me to utilize the intelligence with which I have been blessed. However sparse it may seem, some days... :)

5. I am thankful that I have been blessed with not only a wonderfully close-knit and supportive family, but also with a network of friends who share my happiness, my sorrows, my dreams and my failures. Grateful that they accept me for who I am and do not try to change me.

There is so much more for which I am thankful, from the sweet smell of fresh cut grass to the touch of a baby's skin. I think it is important to seek things for which we are grateful, each and every day, so that we can truly appreciate the life that has been given to us.

Enjoy your holiday and your blessings!
