Thank you. Thank you very much.

Well, it's that time again: the days in between my husband's birthday and my middle child's birthday! (Oh, I kid. Sort of.)

Of course I mean Thanksgiving! Instead of the usual sappy Thanksgiving post (although those are great), I decided to be a little different this year. Here goes:

I am thankful that:

  • I still wear the same size clothing as last year. (A smaller size would be fabulous, but I digress.)
  • the election is finally over.
  • I have a long time to build up retirement funds :-Z
  • I found made the time to read "The Shack". (So should you - it's awesome!)
  • my kids like my chocolate chip cookies and beg mercilessly ask nicely for me to make them.
  • I have a job, even if I do have to work an occasional holiday.
  • I have Internet access. Without it, I'd have to find another way to waste time play games email people.
  • I have actually started Christmas shopping, and it isn't even December yet!
  • Mrs. Smith's pies are available in my local grocer's freezer.
  • my husband didn't get lost somewhere in the National Forest delivering Thanksgiving meal goodies to a needy family (and he didn't even have his directions!)
  • occasionally I get to sleep past 4:45 am.
  • my house usually looks like bomb went off, because that means I have a house full of happy, healthy children (and one messy husband!)
  • I have a husband, even if he is messy. :-)
  • I have subscribers, followers and a few lurkers who actually read my bloggy randomness and keep coming back! (I just love bloggers.)
  • I am the daughter of a great big God who loves me and blesses me so abundantly that I can make a silly thankfulness list and not even come close to scratching the surface of all my blessings.

I could go on and on, but I won't. Tomorrow is one of those days I get to sleep past 4:45 am and I don't want to negate it by staying up til 3 am blogging.

I'm sure you understand.

Happy Thanksgiving, you sweet blog readers and COMMENTERS (hint hint)!


  1. I don't think your list is "silly," even though a few things made me chuckle :) Truth of the matter is, we do have SO much to be thankful for...and you mentioned some of the "little" things that usually get looked over. I love your list!

  2. lol-- my house also usually looks like a bomb went off! But I take the same attitude... at least we're happy and spend quality time together!

    Happy Thanksgiving!!


So, what do you have to say?
