Being Thankful…

Posted on | November 24, 2010 | 5 Comments

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. And in honor of this much maligned food holiday I am spending all day today just being thankful. (Read: I have no time to actually write a post because we’re traveling to Ocean Isle Beach today at noon so get over it and read what I’m thankful for.)

What am I thankful for? Here goes:

I am thankful for giggles in the morning when I walk into the nursery.

I am thankful for a husband who manages to only stress out when I’m not stressed out so we maintain perfect balance.

I am thankful for in-laws who are an active and loving part of our lives and most importantly of J’s life.

I am thankful to have two healthy and happy parents who are still married and still actually seem to enjoy my company.

I am thankful for a brother and sister who I love more than my luggage.

I am thankful for two brothers-in-law who I actually enjoy being around and a wonderful sister-in-law, who I wonder how we weren’t related sooner.

I am thankful that J has three great-grandmothers.

I am thankful for wonderful e-friends like Kristen, Rebekah, Julianna, Mandy C., Sally, Beth Anne, Mae, Tracey, Alena, Diana, Joanna and so many others who are always there when I need them and who remind me that even if I AM crazy, I’m not the only one.

I’m thankful for wonderful girl friends like Jessica, Missy, Amanda, Keiko, Lissabean, and Carol who are there when I need female support, and wonderful guy friends like Mitch, Matt, Travis and most especially Drew who just make being friends with guys such a wonderful treat.

And I’m thankful for you guys. All 310 of you who follow this blog and who say such nice things in the comments.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

    Happy Thanksgiving!! I feel like I have so much to be thankful for. So much good has happened this year, even if a fair share of not good was happening too. So yay to a good year, and good things, and a great Thanksgiving!

    Love your thankful thought about how you and your husband balance each other. Great perspective.

    And, hey, there are 311 of us for whom to be thankful!

    I am thankful for your blog (and RFL and SRMM) who remind me that I'm not the only one out here insane and going crazy(er) in this business of Mommyhood. I am thankful that you share your wonderful stories and that we get to (virtually) be a part of J's life.

    Have a blessed Thanksgiving, and a wonderful weekend!

    I was at Ocean Isle for Thanksgiving too! How crazy if I ran into you & didn't realize it! 🙂
