I have so very much in my life to be thankful for; it seems trite to try to sum it all up in a blog post but I am going to try anyway.
I am thankful for my home. I am thankful for all the love that is contained within these walls and the joy of those who live here. I am thankful that I come home every day to arms that are ready to hug and a little angel who exclaims "mommy, mommy, mommy! Mine, mine, mine!" when I come through the door. I am thankful that we are healthy and fed and truly we want for very little. I am thankful that we both have steady jobs and have had very little turmoil during these tough times when so many have had to go without.
I am thankful for my family; the family I was born into, the family I gained when my dad and step mom married and the family I married into. Together, they form a support system I don't know what we'd do without. They are happy to babysit when we need a break. They keep me fed and sane when I am on my own with a toddler for the first time. They are here every weekend to play, to go to the park or walk for ice cream. I have parents and sisters, aunts, uncles, grandparents and nephews who I adore and I am thankful that Kayla will grow up in such a large, loving family.
I am so thankful for these two. Without them I'd be wandering, lost and lonely. They really do complete me, and I am ever so grateful that I have them.
So tomorrow while I am eating turkey and stuffing and mashed potatoes to my heart's content, I am going to be thinking of these things, and more. I hope all of you have something to be thankful for too. Happy Thanksgiving all.
