thankful

I love Thanksgiving!  It is one of my favorites!!  I am thankful for so many things this year. 
I thought it only seemed appropriate to share those things with you all! 

I am thankful for...

My husband.  He is my best friend. I can tell him anything and enjoy every evening I have with him after the kids are tucked tightly in bed.  We laugh, watch TV and talk about our days.  I am thankful for him and this time.

I am thankful for my kids.  I love them more than I ever imagined I could.  They are the sweetest kids.  I love being their mom and I am so thankful I was chosen to be their parent.  I am thankful for their good health.

I am thankful for my Harley dog.  I know she is sad right now missing her side kick...Callaway.  I am thankful to still have one dog.  And I am thankful for the 12 years I did have with Callaway.

I am thankful for my house.  I love my house.  I am thankful for my kitchen.  I love to cook and am happiest when I am cooking and making yummy healthy meals for my family. I am thankful for all the fun kitchen gadgets I have collected over the years.

I am thankful for my friends...my in real life friends and family, and my twitter & blog friends.  I have been so blessed with tons of friends and I love them all.  Each person I know has touched my life in one way or another and I love them all!

I am thankful for my relationship with God. I love that I can talk to him anytime about anything. My relationship with him has helped me become who I am today. He has helped me with trials and tribulations and also shined through me in happy times. I wish everyone could have the relationship I have with God. It is amazing.

I am thankful for my iPhone.

I am thankful for my new coffee pot.  It gets me going in the morning. 

I am thankful for my camera, all my recipe books, our backyard, the Sharper Image speakers that play whatever music we are in the mood for.

I am thankful for my comfortable pillow and soft kooshie bed, my snuggie, my Vera Wang wine glasses, and my cast iron skillet.

I am thankful for great smelling laundry detergent, candles and fingernail polish.  I am glad that I can change the color polish I am wearing when ever I want. 

I am thankful that I am able to make my own choices.

I am thankful for the person I am.  I am proud of myself and who I have become.  It has taken me a long time to become confident in who I am.  I was a nervous first time parent, but parenting has changed me as a person.  I love this and hope that I continue to grow and change into an even better person!!

Oh and of course I am thankful for turkey, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie :) But REALLLLY thankful for cornbread dressing...oh how I love it!

I must say I love this "thankful" list. If I went on with what I'm thankful to you - I'd seriously take up your entire day 24 hours is not enough time. LOL.

Happy Holidays!
