I realize that I missed the traditional Thanksgiving post and even slacked on a post-Thanksgiving post. I was busy spending time with dear friends and my little family, so it was time well spent.
I am eternally grateful for all of my many blessings in life, so I wanted to a smorgasbord of sorts of the things I am thankful for.
In no particular order or importance...
~ Thanksgiving spent with international friends. It always adds so much more to the table and to the conversation.*
~ My KitchenAid stand mixer. That lovely's muscles were put to work for Thanksgiving food prep.
~ People serving ham AND turkey for Thanksgiving...cause really, who likes turkey?!?!
~ Chubby toddler hands that wrap around your neck.
~ Davyn McClain coming home for the hospital on Thanksgiving day...after spending two weeks in the NICU.
~Sunshine and crisp breezes.
~ Fleece-lined leggings, the ultimate stretchy pant.
~Cookies and coffee...together.
~ Sugar-free Peppermint Mocha coffee creamer...in the extra large bottle.
~Black Friday deals that were online the day BEFORE Thanksgiving...and have already shipped and arrived at my door.
~ Bathroom doors with locks.
~ Getting the boys their most wanted gift.
~ "Hold me, Momma" on repeat.
~ Josh Groban singing Christmas music.
~ Husband had the Friday after Thanksgiving off for the first time in 7 years. Jubilee!
Really. I have SO much to be thankful for. I have a warm home, more than enough clothes, a stocked kitchen, happy boys and a loving husband. I feel blessed beyond measure. Not just during this holiday season, but every day of the week. Even on this overcast Tuesday morning when I have completely run out of any forms of juice (absolute horrors for toddlers) I am thankful that I can get in my car and go buy some.
What are you thankful for?
* Pretend there is a really great Thanksgiving table of friends picture. I have filled my limit of images on Blogger and am in the middle of trying to figure out how to fix it. Any suggestions?
