Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you’re all with the ones you love, enjoying this day and appreciating what it’s really about: giving thanks for our blessings and bounties and loved ones. The good food doesn’t hurt, either.
In the tradition of the holiday, here is what I’m thankful for, this year and always:
-Sweet little Dylan, my reason and light.
-Tom, for being an amazing father and husband and person, and for working so hard for our family.
-My family, whom I love, not in spite of their insanity, but because of it.
-My health, and that of those I love. It can go so fast, without warning, so I wake everyday thankful that we’ve been given another day.
-Good friends, who are few and hard to come by, but make life bearable on the hardest days.
-I’m thankful my husband has work, and we have a roof over our heads and food on our table. So many people do not.
-As silly as it sounds, I’m thankful for the internets, and the wonderful and amazing people it’s put in my path.
-I’m thankful for good people. People who stand up for what’s right, against what’s wrong, and especially for those who cannot stand up for themselves.
I’m also thankful for a lot of other little stuff, like those cream cheese buns at the Asian market, thick socks, DVR, Salt and Pepper Kettle Chips, hot tea on a cold night, the smell of the first rain, dogs and cats that fight like cats and dogs but love each other more, books on the iPad, and a cool pillow.
What are YOU thankful for? Love to all, enjoy your holiday!
