Much to be thankful for

Thanksgiving 2010

Often, I get very tied up in my needs and wants and hurts. Each day I try to take time to thank God for the blessings. Often times, thanking Him for my blessings makes the pains and struggles seem easier.

Thanksgiving is a day to remind us what life is all about.

It's the little things that make the day special sometimes too.

Sleeping in. Not working. Watching the parade all snuggled up together. Browsing through Black Friday ad's. A nice Brunch always with the intention of holding us 'til dinner. A brunch that never does so though. Calling loved ones we can't be with. Wishing those dear friends and family that we can't hug, a very blessed day. Baking. Cooking. Time with loved ones that are near. Lots of laughter. Even more food. Dessert. Oh, be still my heart!

Today, I want to note the things that I am especially thankful for.

God: For life in and of itself.
No other blessings would be if not for He.

My husband: without whom I can't think of what life would be.
He is my heart & soul.

My family, especially my nieces & nephews (and cousins).

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
