Being Thankful

I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving Day! I know that we did. My family lives primarily in the Southwest and I can't stand DH's family so the holidays aren't ones that we spend with family. Instead we go out the house of DH's oldest friend and spend the day there. It is a good time for all as I am good friends with Charlie also and usually end up cooking half the meal. It is normally a crowded house with people popping in and out all day. This year was different as there was only five of us there. Rather quiet and relaxing.

This time of year always causes me to reflect on things that I am thankful for and this year I wanted to share my list with you all.

1. My husband. I know that he will always be there to support me in whatever I decide to do.
2. My job. The economy hasn't really effected my job which is really a good thing as I am the main breadwinner in our family.
3. My friends. I have a fantastic group of friends and I treasure them all.
4. My furbabies. What better way to know one is loved then curling up in the recliner with a dog and two cats on your lap.
5. I am thankful for the fact that while I do have health issues that are painful, none of them are life threatening.

Those are the big ones that I am always thankful for. Then there are the smaller ones like the smile that I get one my face when I feel a warmer breeze, or the laugh that bubbles up over a good joke share with friends. Those are all moments that I am thankful for the opportunity to experience.

I hope that everyone has a great holiday season!
