What I’m Thankful For

I didn’t come from a family that goes around the table on Thanksgiving reciting the things we are each thankful for. I believe this is a good idea though, because I have many things to be thankful for. First, and foremost I am thankful that I am alive and healthy. I am also thankful that I have the opportunity to be a stay-at-home mom to my children. I did not have that pleasure the first two years of my oldest’s life, and missed so many milestones. I am glad that I was able to witness these milestones in his younger brother. I am thankful that my parents are both alive. We lost my grandpa this June, and Thanksgiving and Christmas will be hard on the family, but I am thankful that I have my parents and other family members to be there if needed. I am thankful that I have a roof over my head and food in my belly. I know there are others that are not as fortunate and I thank God that I have this necessity. I have amazing friends that support me in whatever I choose to do and I am eternally grateful for them. Without them, I do not know how I could go through some of life’s challenges.
