Thankful!



With these days of touch economic news, I know it is hard to remember that we all have so many things to be thankful for. Hard to remember there are things to be thankful for when one is scraping to pay the mortgage, hoping to keep the heat on for another month, working several jobs just to put food on the table. I know for many of us, that reality is just one step removed....one bad decision away.

I feel very thankful for the many things I have in my life. I have a great family. I have a wonderful, talented and supportive husband who works so hard and so many hours so that I may home with our son. I have a wonderful son who is creative and bright and loving. I have a creative outlet where I can flow and share. I am thankful I have an education (I worked very hard for it and learned so many lessons through it. It is invaluable). I am thankful for the many true friends I have. They add so much to my family.

At this time of year, it is so important to reflect on our struggles and remember what gives us strength. These are the things to feel thankful for. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
