The other day I was reading Kate’s blog and she mentioned that, in the spirit of thankfulness, she would be posting 3 things she is thankful for each time she posts during the month of November. Her idea inspired me to start Thankful Thursdays – a weekly post about being thankful. I’ve invited some friends to join me so you may see these posts popping up a bit. I think it will help all of us remember that we have much for which to be thankful.
This week, and every day, really, I am thankful for:
1. My husband, Dale. He loves me and supports me and tolerates my moods. He reads every blog post I write and admires every picture I take. He loves my hobbies and my friends and even my cat. I cannot imagine life without him.
2. My daughter, Hannah. I love her fiercely and I’m grateful every day that I get to be her mom. She’s one special kid.
3. My stepchildren, Brant (and his wife, Heather), Jessica, Luke and also my stepgrandchildren Patrick and Ambrynn. It wasn’t easy blending our families but these kids accepted me because of the one thing we’ve always had in common: loving Dale. I never thought I’d have such a big, crazy, loving family but I do and I wouldn’t change it for the world.
I hope thinking about the things you are thankful for makes your day a little better.
