Thankful Thursday on Thanksgiving Day

  • my health
  • my healthy children
  • my best friend, my husband
  • my friends and family
  • our home
  • my job, which is so far from being a "job"
  • having found my passion and purpose, it took 25 years to find!
  • being able to stay at home with my kids, even though some days I'd like to run away
  • having the best neighbors ever (here and on Westlawn)
  • Noah's school
  • wireless internet
  • my grandmother's diary
  • my kitchen - it's so nice to finally have room to cook
  • stuffing
  • fresh flowers any time of year
  • comfy pj pants
  • Thanksgiving shopping ads (I just like to look at them!)
  • coffee, especially gingerbread lattes, but when at home gingerbread creamer will work just fine
  • disposable plates, cups and silverware (especially when feeding 10 kids!)
  • friends who live in North Carolina (who I get to see in one week!)
  • bath time because it keeps my kids happy for a good hour
  • friends who email me outa nowhere only to say they love me
  • my cat who follows me everywhere ~ it makes me feel really special (and sometimes annoyed)
  • handmade things because there's nothing else like it in the world
  • our new big comfy bed because I've been sleeping better at night
  • orchids because they're such beautiful flowers even though I can't get mine to bloom
  • really good bargains
  • color and being able to see it with my eyes
  • my feet, even though they are big because according to Cerella they make my legs look even longer and I actually really like my legs
  • my husband who does all the mopping & laundry (usually) in our house
  • getting to actually sit down with my family and watch television (I did this last night!)

I could go on and on with my list, but I'll save it for my next Thankful Thursday/Little Things. Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends, family and bloiters! Many blessings to you all.

Happy Thanksgiving to you, too, Val. I hope your dinner was a success. It was just Ryan, Addison and me....oh, and Jett!!! She was begging for the food the entire time so we gave in. I miss you, Val!

Love you!

What a sweet list! You'll have to peak at our blog to see what we are thankful for this year. Finally had a chance to catch up on our blogging this last weekend. Your blog is so fun to read -- miss ya. It would be so fun to cross paths sometime in Decatur again. Love -- Leann
