I am Thankful for Pumpkin Pie

Apparently, in honor of Thanksgiving, someone in Facebook Land thought it would be a good idea to post one thing each day that you are thankful for – every day of November until Thanksgiving.   This caught on, so now when I log in, there is a barrage of thankfulness.  Following in the tradition, I’ve decided to make a list myself.  (Those of you who know me best can pick yourselves up off the floor).

  • I am thankful that my husband attended the homeschool co-op play (even though he was SNORING through it)
  • I am thankful my kids are healthy enough to fight with each other.
  • I am thankful that my children have the mental capacity to learn (even though they mostly use it for evil)
  • I am thankful to have the opportunity to stay at home (and rock in a corner) with those same kids.
  • I am thankful for my computer – but only because I’m afraid if I complain about it it will crash.
  • I’m thankful for Margaritas.
  • And Chocolate.
  • I am thankful for the USAF – without it my life would be organized, planned, and predictable – BORING!!
  • I am thankful for friends who laugh.  :-)

In all honesty, I truly live a blessed life.  I love and am loved by my husband, my children, my parents, my sisters, my brothers, and my friends.  I am able to raise my children and to educate them.  God blessed me with a gift for photography, and I am so thankful to be able to capture moments like this:

(I love her!)

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!!
