Thankful…

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!

I am thankful for so many things.  First and foremost, I am thankful for my children.  Before I had them, I didn’t know what I was missing.  They have brought me a plethora of emotions. From sadness to happiness, anger to pure joy.  They have so been worth including in my life and I don’t know what I would do without them.

I am thankful for my Husband.  We have been journeying through this life together for over 29 years, more than half my life!  It has never been dull for us and I love him very much!

I am thankful to have my Parents near to me and have them be healthy.  Over the last couple of years they have had a few health hiccups which has made me cherish them even more.

I am thankful for my best friend.  I went for many years with no friends, just my family and so she is very dear to me.  She is the little sister I always wanted and I am glad she came into my life.

All the things I am grateful for aren’t things at all.  They are the people in my life.  Things aren’t so important…they are just THINGS!  It’s the people in your life, the love you share that is so important.  Now, go love on someone!
