Thanksgiving...a few days early

In case you didn't know, Thanksgiving is just a few days away. It's that day of the year when we stuff ourselves and pretend to be thankful.

After all, Christmas keeps edging in on this holiday. In case you didn't know, Christmas is the day Christians celebrate the birth of their savior by getting random plastic items for their children. Yeah..I can't recall how they correlate either.

Today, I've been feeling like a "have not" and I really need to post this to remind me just how much of a "have" person I am.

This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for

My kiddos. Watching Little G. recover so quickly from his bout of pneumonia, reminds me of all the parents out there whose kiddos are really fighting. Today I am. Saying a prayer for them.

My hubby. He drives me crazy sometimes but he puts up with all my quirks (even though they are few) and he is willing to drive to NC to spend Thanksgiving with my sister and her family.

My family.  I am thankful that my sister and her hubby want us to invade.  I am thankful that she'll let me bring my obese dog.  I am thankful that her in laws are bringing down the motor home and plugging it into her house.  It's a Griswold Family Thanksgiving.  I am thankful for all my family; they may drive us nuts sometimes, but without them where would we be?

My friends. I have so many friends whom I can turn to in a moments notice. That is truly a blessing.

Wine. The sweeter the better.

Laughter. I am thankful for the sense of humor I have been given and the ability I have to make people laugh even when I am not even trying. Which happens more than I would like to admit.

Cardstock. I love to create things out of paper. From wreaths, to scrapbooks, to cards, I love the feel of paper in my hands.

Sunshine. Days of rain change my mood. I love the sun. Even if it's cold out, the day is better when the sun is shining.

Hot tea. I start every morning off with a nice steamy cup of tea. Nothing quite like a quiet house filled with healthy sleeping children and a warm cup of tea in your hands. Add the sun rising over the mountain and who cares why lies ahead. All seems right with the world.

Warm blankets, my house, my stinky beagle, my cricut, comfortable jeans, pop tarts, Pepsi....

What are you thankful for?

Can't even list all the things I'm thankful for! I'm a very lucky person to have all that I have.

Oh my gosh, we think alike! I just finished my Thanksgiving post and came over here to find that you had already had the same idea, and were thankful for the same things! We are twinners, what can I say? :)Happy Thanksgiving!
