What are YOU Thankful for?

I'm thankful for good friends who take my boys on overnighters that last until 2 the next day.

I'm thankful for a best friend (whom I just happen to be married to) who likes to surprise "his girls" with spur-of-the-moment gourmet dinners.

I'm thankful for a daughter who likes to help her Mommy bake apple pies.
I'm thankful for the health of everyone I love.

I'm thankful for my own health which enables me to celebrate with said loved ones.I'm thankful for brown eyed little girls who watch The Velveteen Rabbit while slicing apples and chatting with her mother about the slushy snow that is falling outside the kitchen window.

I'm thankful for 2 handsome sons who fling their arms around me with smiles after being away all night.
I'm thankful for the simple pleasure that a picture like this can evoke within me. It's memories like these that I want to hold onto the most.

I'm thankful for everyone who ever touches my heart and feels as though I've touched theirs.

It's true that "Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away." May you all be breathless this Thanksgiving weekend.

Travel safely. Hug someone you rarely hug. Tell the ones you care just how much they mean to you...

My list of things I'm thankful for is really rather long ... but I'm thankful that the list includes you.

I'm thankful for my family and friends, food, warmth, the four walls around us.

I'm also thankful for the blog-o-sphere and the cool, inspiring, and funny people in it. Like you!

Enjoy your Turkey Day!

That's a great list Tracey! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.


I am thankful, today, that I only have to leave the house to walk over to the school to help out for lunch. It is COLD and snowy out there!

I hope you had a fabulous, joy filled Thanksgiving! We did! :) And, aren't we all so fortunate? It's the small yet oh-so-large-in-our-heart things that I am the most thankful for.
