I am thankful for (in no particular order):

My kids

Health – mine and everyone I love

My grandfather – who is still hanging in.  Love you, Pop.

My parents

My brother and his family

The rest of my extended family – cousins make the world more interesting

My friends

My neighbors – except the mean ones

My dog

My other dog, even though he can’t live here

The gate that keeps my dog out of the rest of the house.

The roof over my head

That it’s the same roof as last year


My job

Being able to be home when my kids get home from school

No commute

My co-workers – who make working alone feel less lonely

Having the option to choose what I want to eat

Ice cream

That I am done meeting with lawyers


Facebook – for helping me be surrounded by friends at all times

Anyone who is actually reading this

And many many more things

Bumps aside, I am one seriously lucky girl.  Thank you to everyone who makes me realize it every single day.

Hope you have an amazing holiday surrounded by everything you are thankful for.
