So Many Things for Which I am Thankful

So Many Things for Which I am Thankful


Every year when we gathered around the table on Thanksgiving, Grandpa would make us say why we were grateful that year.  So, I guess I always do that even though he is no longer here, and today makes me contempating all of the things and people for which I am thankful.


I am thankful for:

 Thankful for Family

My sons

My husband

My parents - all of them

My siblings - so many!

My nephews, neices, cousins, aunts, uncles and so many more


My friends - I am lucky to have some of the most wonderful friends you could imagine

My business, and all of my clients


My pets

Where I live

The ability to set my own schedule so I can spend time with my family



There are so many more things that run through my mind as I write this post, but I think you get the idea.  I'm feeling very lucky and very grateful today.


Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! I hope you have much for which you are grateful as well!
