On the eve of Thanksgiving, I felt it appropriate to compile a list of the things I am thankful for.  There are so many things, but I felt like I should limit it to 10 in the interest of time. 

#10 Me-Yep, not to be conceited, but I am thankful for me.  For who I am, for who I strive to be, and what I mean to others.

#9 Life- for giving me the chance to experience it to the fullest with all of it's ups & downs.

#8 Health- for being blessed with good overall health.

#7 My job- Being able to do what I love is such a blessing!

#6 All the material things we tend to take for granted, Food, Shelter, Clothing, a Car.  We truly are blessed.

#5 Time- For having the chance to be able to organize my life as best I can and experience it to the fullest.

#4  My Friends- Although I have many acquaintances, there are only a few that I call my true lifelong friends and I cherish them.

#3 My Extended Family- My Mom & Dad, my brother, and my in-laws all are amazing and they never cease to amaze me.

#2 My  Boys- My three boys mean the world to me and I am in awe of the young men they are becoming.  So smart, kind and thoughtful.  Not to mention handsome :D  They are going to be good husbands & daddy's someday!

#1 My Soulmate- My husband Jim is my rock.  An amazing man, loving, supportive, intelligent, funny, hard working, an amazing father and did I mention handsome?  :D

I am pretty lucky to have so many blessings!

When you sit down with your loved ones for your Thanksgiving dinner, be thankful for everyone and everything that makes it possible. Look your family and friends in the eye and express to them your gratitude for sharing this wonderful time together.

Thanksgiving is a very special holiday. Embrace those around you and your ability to give thanks to those you love.
