Finally got all the daycare kids to sleep and started to do some laundry. My thoughts drifted to the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. It got me thinking What are you most thankful for? Obviously, the answer we will see is FAMILY. Well, besides family, what else?
Of course, I'm thankful for a wonderful, loving husband and two of the greatest kids a mom could ask for. Also for the best parents in the world. And God for all He has given me.
But I want to take this oppurtunity to thank all of you for your caring ways, your understanding, your humor, your warmth and most of all your friendship. You have been there for me as a sounding board when I need to vent, a shoulder to cry on when I'm sad, someplace to run to when I have exciting news to share and as a "family" that I am proud to be a part of. So from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU.
I am thankful for so many things. My kids who are forever surprising me.
My husband with a job like his, I thank the Lord that we have time to love each other. I am thankful for a home that I can call mine, and not somebody else's. Being military, this is the longest we have ever lived in one place. I am thankful for enough money in my checkbook to actually balance. I am thankful for Carnival for giving me the thrill of my life. and........ I am thankful for all of you. For being there for me.
I'm thankful for friends and family (here and all over) that helped me through the passing of my dad and father in law in this last year and many other needy times.
I'm thankful for my kids who make me laugh everyday, I'm thankful that they talk to me about just about everything.
I'm thankful for my husband...it's been an interesting 23 years of marriage and I have a feeling the next 23+ will be even more so.
Our Thanksgiving has already passed, but anytime is a good time to give thanks for 2 wonderful kids and the best husband I could ever hope for, he's been so wonderful to me, and best of all, got me hooked on cruising!
I'm thankful that I was born in the US, that I had wonderful, loving, caring parents and grandparents, and a great-grandmother who I was lucky enough to know, and other family members and wonderful in-laws.
That I have a DH who is a perfect match for me, that we are financially "stable", and that I have friends both here at home and online, and that we're able to cruise!
Also, that I have a wonderful cat, BJ, who loves me no matter what!
