First, I'm thankful to my hubs, for so many things. For working as hard as he does (which is a crap ton lately) to provide for us. And he's a wonderful provider. I probably don't tell him that as much as I should. I'm also thankful for his endless support, in all things - I know he has my back. Whether it be with the kids, big and little life decisions, and this whacky 'writer' thing I'm trying to do. He's always there, holding me up and cheering me on.
I'm grateful for my friends, the ones I can always count on no matter what. You know who you are, guys. I know that I can call them right now, and if I need help, they'll drop what they're doing and help however they can. Thank you guys, for being my family.
I'm thankful for the great friends I have made along the way on this journey. Tami, Michelle, Deb - you girls are the best! I don't know how I would have come this far without you guys, really. From my stupid questions, to regular girl talk, to sharing encouragement; I consider you my very good friends, and I'm thankful for our friendships.
I'm thankful for all my readers, for their continued support, posting comments, giving me the privilege of being the one whose book they curl up with. Every time I feel like tossing in the towel, one of you sends me encouragement, and I can keep going. Thank you, for letting me into your life and sharing this journey with me.
I'm thankful for the bloggers that have opened their virtual doors to me and continue to help me. A special shout out to Margie at Bumbles and Fairy-Tales who is always so great to work with and even honored me with a special spot on her sidebar. Sounds silly, but that's a big honor to me. Another shout out to Danica at Taking It One Page at a Time for her continued support, being so incredibly easy to work with, and helping me in so many ways I can't count!
Last but not least, I'm thankful for the many blessings in the everyday life that so often get taken for granted. A warm home on cold days, food to feed my family, my health, for being able to give my kids a better life than I had, for my crazy family and their unconditional love, a good car, and a good life.
What about you guys, what are you thankful for this Thanksgiving? I'd love to hear what's on your list!
