Happy Thanksgiving!  Whether you’ve been marathon cooking for the last 2 days like me, have the luxury of attending Thanksgiving dinner today as a guest, or are spending a quieter day working or by yourself, I’m wishing you a joyful holiday filled with lots of scrumptious food and a very full belly.  Because my sleeping hours have been odd lately with the new baby, I was up early this morning (with my 2 year actually) and had the chance to see the sun rise and take a few quieter moments to reflect on what I’m thankful for this year.  I was especially thankful for these quieter moments when I was up, it was quiet, and, my mind was actually lucid!  Here’s my gratitude list:

The new possibilities that each day brings (even when new possibilities are hard to see),

The seasons of life,

All the little hands in my life that hold mine,

Friends that bring bursts of happiness,

Family that supports and shows love,

My incredible husband and the new ways we complement each other every day.

 

And, last but not least, I’m so grateful for this blog and the ways it enhances and enriches my life.  It brings such an added dimension to the everyday.  The readers and bloggers who follow, comment, and connect have allowed my blog to grow a little more this year.  So thank you, thank you, thank you.

 

See you next week!

Janet - We are so happy for you and thankful to have you on our lives. We are fortunate to have 4 children, a fabulous daughter-in-law (you) and 2 wonderful son-in-laws and 6 very special grandkids. The fact that they are all healthy and happy makes our lives complete and somewhat stress free. Life has thrown us some difficult curves, but we always reminder ourselves how fortunate we are and our problems are really fixable as long as we have our health.
