Thanksgiving (A day late)

Those of you who know me, know that I am late for almost everything.  I was even late for my own wedding!  It's not a fun affliction to be stuck with, but I do what I have to do.  Also, I usually use Fridays for Food Fridays...that will come out on Monday.  Make sure you check it out!  With that out of the way, let me get down to business.

This is what I am thankful for this year:

My husband, Rich, is the best thing that has ever happened to me!  Honestly, I can't imagine what my life would be like if I had not happened upon him 16 years ago.  He's my best friend and I am incredibly thankful to be married to the wonderful man!  He works outrageously hard so I can be a stay-at-home mom to our children...which brings me to number two.

My kids.  I think I have the funniest children around!  They make me laugh on a daily basis.  At 10 and almost 5 they are still really cuddly, so I get so many cuddles that I can hardly stand it!  I am thankful that God trusted me to raise them.  

Sharon Holbert and Bethany Powroznik.  I am so truly thankful for these ladies.  They love my son.  They love him enough to be tough on him.  They believe in his potential.  If it weren't for these two ladies, Wesley wouldn't be where he is today.  Because of them, I have the option to either start him in kindergarten next year or go ahead and hold him back another year.  I have that option because I think that he could make it in kindergarten.  Their hard work has given that to us.  Bethany is Wesley's pre-k teacher.  Sharon is his Developmental Specialist.  I will be forever thankful for them.  They are helping Wesley be able to function in this crazy world.

Thanks for reading this.  It's a great feeling to be thankful for something!

  1. Thanks for sharing those! It's definitely great to find things to give thanks for (especially when the actual Thanksgiving day is less delightful).

    Love you guys -- we have to do another game night soon. Because I'm thankful for adult interaction and laughter and it's always fun with you!
