Thanksgiving is tomorrow and like most people during this time of year I have reflected on what it is that I am thankful for. Let me first say that I feel that I am truly blessed. At times I whine and complain about trivial things, but all in all life is good.
I am thankful for my Mother. Yes, she falls into the category of friends and family, but she is also in a category all her own. This woman that I used to argue with and thought didn’t know anything, is my best friend. I speak to her everyday, seek her council, and am lost at times without her. She is an extraordinary person, and I am thankful to call her Mom.
I am thankful to have a job. Sometimes when I get frustrated about having to go to a meeting or having to work late on a spread sheet, I think about the times when I didn’t have this worry. I had another worry instead, how was I going to pay my bills and provide for my daughter. I am thankful that I am healthy enough to get up everyday and go to work. I am thankful that I live in a country that I can freely express my beliefs. I am thankful for the future and the possibilities that it holds for me and my family.
Of course, I am most thankful for jelly beards, peanut butter kisses, early morning wake ups, and Cheerio’s that I find everywhere (recently in my shoe). This is Angel’s 2nd Thanksgiving and although she doesn’t know it yet I am so thankful for her. She has changed my life in a way that I never thought was possible. I am thankful God sent her to me, my little Angel.
I am thankful to my readers and hope you enjoy reading my thoughts, feelings, and stories. May you all have a many blessings to count and things to be thankful for.
