What words can't say
Just Thankful

Thankful for ...

As I recover from a whirlwind weekend, it dawns on me that I didn't ever stop to consider my blessings and express gratitude for them. Even during the Thanksgiving grace, I was more focused on how lovely the table looked, how great the food smelled and how I wished I had an IV drip of sugar-free Red Bull. So ... as I sit here relaxing and waiting for the Desperate Housewives hour I'd like to take a few minutes to focus on how blessed I truly am. When I say "relax" what I mean is wait for the laundry to dry, balance the checkbook, and make a list of the things I should've done that I didn't get to. Back to my blessings -

  • A wonderful, loving, affectionate and fun husband who works hard to ensure our long, happy life
  • A family who loves me and does their best to stay in touch and keep connected despite the distance between us
  • A home of our own
  • An awesome job
  • Friends I couldn't imagine my life without
  • The kindness of strangers
  • My health (who needs an appendix anyhow?)
  • Love. Love. Love.
  • Blessings yet to come
