Giving Thanks

Let us remember that, as much has been given us, much will be expected from us, and that true homage comes from the heart as well as from the lips, and shows itself in deeds.
~Theodore Roosevelt
Another year, and I have so much to be thankful for...

I am thankful for the love of a man who is like no other.  He is sweet and kind, patient and giving.  He loves me through all of my moods and is a wonderful father to our children.  He is supportive through all of my endeavours, regardless of their outcomes and is my biggest champion.  After 12 years, my heart still flutters when he kisses me and my knees go weak.  I will love you forever and always.
I am thankful for a son who is always loving and kind, despite his bouts of willfulness.  His creativity and artistic talent is only outshined by his exuberance and enthusiasm.  He is handsome, funny and smart - and one heck of a swimmer, to boot!

I am thankful for a daughter who is strong and independent, although I may not appreciate it all the time!  Her girly-girl tendencies and contrasting tomboyish actions at times allow me to enjoy the best of both worlds with her.  She is beautiful, funny and smart - and loves shoes!!

I am thankful for my extended family.  We have an incredibly close relationship and their support means the world to me.  I know that not everyone shares a relationship with their siblings as I do with my sisters and I thank my lucky stars everyday.

I am thankful for my scrapbooking.  It started as a hobby almost ten years ago and has developed into a slight obsession.  I am so very thankful for the wonderful friends and incredible opportunities this passion has brought into my life. 

I am thankful for the gift of Life, so that I may enjoy all for which I am so very thankful...

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
