So Many Reasons to be Thankful!


Tomorrow is Thanksgiving! I hope everyone will be with those that they are thankful for in their lives.

Today I am thankful for three parts of my life. First, my darling husband. He still loves me after being puked on, spit up on, peed on, and Lord knows what else on. He has given me the opportunity to be a stay at home mom, for which I am ever grateful. He does so much for us and never really asks for a thank you. I love you!

Second, I am thankful for the pitter patter of little feet in my home. I know that sometimes I get frustrated and don’t think I can take it anymore. I know I sometimes wish for them to be older. Honestly, it scares me to think about the future and the quiet. In just 15 years my oldest will be off to college. Fifteen years! Fifteen years ago was not that long ago. So fast forward fifteen years and that is definitely not a long time. It will be silent. The days are long but the years are short. I am thankful for the sounds of those little feet and little laughter. (Can we just freeze this time in our lives?)

Last, but not least, I am thankful for you, my wonderful and loyal readers! Some of you have been here since the beginning. For some of you this might be your first ( and I hope not your last) visit. I write because of you. We are a virtual family that sticks together through thick and thin. For your loyalty and your interest, I am forever thankful.

From my family to yours, have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving! May your day be filled with love, laughter, and mounds of food ( yes, I said it. Mounds of food. Live it up people!).

Happy Monday!! I hope everyone had a relaxing weekend :)

We are a few days away from Thanksgiving. Today I am thankful for the beautiful pink sky at sunset last night. The whole world looked pink. The pictures in this post definitely do not do it justice. I am thankful that I got to witness it and that I got to share it with my family.

Here are some other posts about my week of being thankful.

A bond to be thankful for

I love writing about the things I am thankful for! You only get to do this living thing once. You might as well be thankful for the wonderful parts of your life (and even be thankful for some of the not so wonderful. Your life wouldn’t be the way it is without it).


Today I am thankful for two things. First, I am thankful for the loving bond between my boys. I love seeing their relationship grow as they get older. I love how they hold hands and laugh at each other. I love how my oldest hugs his little brother and says “I love you baby brother”. I love how they play with each other. I hope that they always stay this way until they are old and gray!


I am also thankful for my dog, Petey. He is truly the best dog anyone can ask for. When we adopted him almost five years ago I did not know what to expect. Now looking back, it is the one of the best decisions we have ever made. He is such a loving and gentle dog. He is so calm when both of our boys pet him (well, sometimes it is a little more that just a pet :/ ). And he is always there at the end of the day to cuddle with me after a super busy and exhausting day. We love you Petey!
