Blessings


 I hope y'all had a great Thanksgiving and were able to be with family and friends!

Wow!  Has this been a busy day for me!  First we had a Thanksgiving lunch with relatives.  Lots of ham, turkey, dressing and tons of desserts.  We had such a great time with the family.

Then we came home and I started cooking a Thanksgiving supper for my family and Barb's family.  I cooked a turkey, stuffing, real mashed potatoes (my favorite), and some rolls.  I was so full from earlier, I couldn't even eat for awhile!  I think everyone else had a good time today too.

Sometimes we focus too much on the things we don't have.  If you have a minute go read Barb's Thanksgiving post, it really puts things into perspective!

Here are just a few of the things I am thankful for:

  • I am blessed to have two boys to love!  They can be a handful, but I can't imagine life without them. 
  • I am thankful my husband works very hard for us so that I can stay at home with our boys.  
  • I am thankful my best friend is here with me, even though I drive her crazy sometimes!  
  • I am blessed to have lots of friends in the blogging community!  
  • I am thankful God is loving and forgiving, even though I don't deserve it!
