What I am Thankful for...

As I  sit and contemplate my life on Thanksgiving morning  after a somewhat restless sleep I realize that if I listed everything I was thankful for, I might use up the rest of this blog. So, I will keep it simple.
  • I am thankful for a loving, kind, intelligent husband who treats me with respect and kindness. Who challenges me intellectually, but lets me win arguments every now and then. 
  • I am thankful for a smart, beautiful and healthy child who soaks up information like a sponge and enjoys spending every day with her Mama.
  • I am thankful for a supportive family who understand why I do not want to "work" while I have a young child who benefits from a full time mama. And who loves me. 
  • I am thankful for a big, warm house in the country. Sure, it may not be the neatest,biggest, best or brightest but it is my home. 
  • I am thankful that I have the luxury not to "work" and instead spend my waking moments with a wonderful  child who teaches me the meaning of life.
  • I am thankful I live in a country where I have the freedom to speak my mind, express my own opinions in public or private, educate myself, wear whatever I want, read what I want and write what I want to. I am thankful I can follow my own religion (or none), vote, eat and drink whatever I can afford and be social and outspoken.
  • And lastly I am thankful that our lives are moving onward and upward. That the sunshines in the morning, and wakes me up to a day that I look forward to.
        Happy Thanksgiving! Have a wonderful meal and a wonderful day!
