From our family to yours, we wish you all a very, very Happy Thanksgiving!
Enjoy today's every moment with family and friends and eat to your heart's desire.
When life gets crazy, it's so easy to forget the important things: the blessings, small and large, that define who we are.
I have a lot to be thankful for this year...
First and foremost, my family. I am so blessed to have a wonderful husband who has worked so hard in his career, I am now able to go forth and realize my own dreams. What I am doing now, I never thought was possible.
I am thankful for my two beautiful boys who continue to teach me what it is to love unconditionally and enjoy life wholeheartedly.
I am grateful for having the opportunity to stay home and raise my kids, not missing any details of my children's lives.
I appreciate the clarity I have discovered (this seems to have taken the longest), being able to focus on things most important to me and being at peace with those decisions.
Realizing how much good is in my life and never taking any of it for granted....even when it seems like the sky is falling.
For good friends, near and far. Sharing life and experiences with them has been a wonderful gift.
And now for the small blessings I am grateful for everyday...they may seem unimportant but these are the "icing", making my daily life more palatable...
My husband doing the dishes and emptying the dishwasher...I can make quite a grand mess in the kitchen.
My Kitchen Aid Mixer, I could not live without it.
Morning walks with friends for our daily dose of exercise, especially when it's over!
My favorite cooking magazines.
My husband's right-eye eyelashes that are curly, while the left are straight. I love that.
The right to vote.
Chris Daughtry's Music, I love it.
Legos, because they entertain my children for hours.
My camera, to capture life's memories.
Whipped cream, butter, mayonnaise and bacon.
My reading glasses, I can see again!
Oatmeal...I love oatmeal.
For my blog readers. I can't believe you all visit here everyday, I am truly humbled.
Overall, my life is not in any way easy or extraordinary but it is enjoyable. I would never change it for anything else in the world...for that I am truly grateful.
