I’m reminded every year of all the wonderful things in my life. Thanksgiving, of all days, I have to remember that more than ever.
My family splits holidays every year so this year I’m not with my parents, siblings and their families, and my dad’s family (my mom’s family lives in Tennessee). They will all be together, but my family will be with my husband’s family for Thanksgiving. Even though I’ll miss my family, I’m still thankful that they will be together, thinking of us.
I’m also thankful for my in-laws. They are very caring, loving people and I’m lucky to have them in my life.
I’m most thankful for my husband and my kids. They are everything to me. They inspire me every day and I love them more than they realize.
I’m thankful for the opportunity to write. I was fortunate to lose my job in January 2013 which was the push I needed to start my writing career. I love writing and I can’t believe I get to do it all the time.
I’m thankful for our friends and the kids’ teachers and their friends. I’m thankful for the kind people we encounter every day. I’m thankful for the fun we have together and the ability to spend time together. I’m thankful for our faith and our ability to practice that faith freely. I’m thankful for having a place to live and enough money to pay for our expenses.
I know there’s a lot more. But I just want to remember the amazing people and things in our lives. Thank you to my readers. I am definitely thankful for you!
