And it’s here!!! Thanksgiving 2013

Finally! It’s here! Thanksgiving! I have a special fondness for Thanksgiving. It’s a day to enjoy what you have, reflect on those you miss, and those that share a special place in your heart. It’s a time to be thankful for things we have, and try to think about ways that we can become better people.

Over on Facebook  a lot of people have been saying daily what they are thankful for, but I chose to wait until today to share all of that with the world. Because it helps to keep it all organized.

1) I’m thankful for my kids. They are the little mini me’s running around this around this world, and they help me see myself through a different lens. As the years click by, I realize how little time I have left with them at home. I dread the first thanksgiving they don’t come home, or go do something else. That will be weird. So, I want them to know right now (or reading this entry in 12 years), that if they start pulling that crap, I’ll start taking a cruise to a tropical island every Thanksgiving. 😉 lol

2) I’m thankful for my family and friends. They help keep me sane and although we may not talk every day, I know we all care about each other deeply. With people that you are close too, it important not to take them for granted. I very thankful for the people that have believed in me recently, encouraged me and believed in me through some kind of confusing times.

3) I am thankful for my health. With each passing year, I feel the age. I know it’s a slow decline from here, but I know I have some serious spunk left yet. I thank God for each breath I take… every move I make. 🙂

4) I am thankful that I have finally narrowed in on some professional moves I want to make in the world. I’ll always be an educator, at heart, and I’m teaching again next term after a break, but I love embracing more creative efforts these days. Once I get back to the States, I have big plans!

5) Last, I am so thankful for A. He’s my best friend and lifelong companion. This year, he has supported me so much, emotionally. He helps me through the ups and downs. He listens. He takes care of our entire family and leads this family with a intense amount of common sense, fairness and leadership. He’s compassionate, frugal, still makes me laugh harder than anyone I know and he’s so GROWN UP! 🙂 I knew that one day we’d reach this grown up place, and now we are here. So, I’m thankful for that I love it.

So, that’s it. From our house to yours….
