Happy ThanksgivingThanksgiving is a holiday I’ve not known as a child but grown to love as an adult. The big cookout, family & friends getting together, laughter, music, celebration of life. What’s not to love?

2010 has been challenging but there are loads of things to be thankful for.

Big Ticket Items I Am Thankful For

  • A healthy family
  • A husband who loves meputs up with me
  • Friendships
  • Our beautiful house (so many people don’t have that anymore)
  • Work that I love

More Thanks For The Little Things That Matter

  • Coffee on my nightstand ready before I wake up
  • Little hugs – gosh I could live for those
  • Many “luv mom” notes my oldest son gives me
  • Little feet that I can tickle and kiss whenever I want or need to
  • Laptop that manages to keep going, against all odds
  • Husband loading the dishwasher, without me having to nag him about it
  • Sleeping in until 8 am (I’m a night owl – big surprise!)
  • Juicy, dirty little kisses from my munchkins
  • To-die-for “conversations” that I have with my 2yo
  • King size bed, capable of handling 5 sleeping 2 snoozing + 3 squirming bodies at the time
  • Quiet evenings with my husband (who for some reason puts up with me)

  • My sister, my brother and my mom who travel 1.5k+ miles each way to play with my kids while putting up with me
  • And the big fat TV, my most reliable babysitter – I couldn’t have done it without you!
