On being thankful

Happy Thanksgiving!

There is so much to much to be thankful for...and yet, my brain is stuck. It might be due, in part, to the fact that I had to go to the store yesterday (you know - that super mega mart store we all love to hate?!). It might also be due to the fact that I realized this morning that I forgot something and HAVE TO GO BACK TO THE GROCERY today!! Ugh!

I am thankful, though, for so many things. I am thankful for my family, my health, and all the good fortune that surrounds me. I complain a lot sometimes, but really, I have it good. I have an amazing husband, good kids (even if they do drive me batty sometimes), a job that I enjoy, and, for the most part, everything I need (and most things I want).

This weekend, we are going to go back to the grocery with the kids. We are going to go shopping for those who are not as fortunate as we. We feel it will be a good experience for the kids, who are already pretty kind and giving (when they're not fighting with each other!).

We're having a quiet Thanksgiving this year...just the four of us. Last year, we hosted the entire family (well, almost - one brother and his family could not make it) and it was a lot of fun. Even The Husband said he wished we were doing that again this year! This year, our holiday will be quiet and not what we're used to, but we'll be together and that is what really matters.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! For what are you especially thankful this year?
