Thanksgiving is such a forgotten holiday! It’s sad! We jump directly from Halloween to Christmas. That’s just not right! I have so much to be thankful for and I personally will NOT skip this holiday. As B said tonight, “it’s the only REAL holiday left”! And he was right. It’s NOT commercial. There is no gift giving so there is no commercial value. And therefore, we as a society SKIP it!
But not me! No way, no how. We are NOT skipping it here. Heck we might even give gifts just because it IS that important. But for now, I’d just like to let y’all know why I am thankful. So again, true to form, my top 10!
#10 – My friends rock. No need to elaborate. New or old, they just do and that’s why they are my friends and I love them!
#9 – I live on an island, and how cool is that?
#8 – I am my own boss, I run a blog and I answer to NO ONE!
#7 – I have a roof over my head.
#6 – I have food on my table!
#5 – I am lucky enough to be able to cook for my family on this awesome holiday. I love to cook (but not bake, that’s what Kroger is for) and they will appreciate what I cook for them!
#4 – I still have both of my parents. Some are not so lucky. We had a scare 2 years ago with a massive stroke for my mom, but she’s still going strong and I’m blessed!
#3 – I got a washer and dryer this week 🙂
#2 – My 6 awesome children! All healthy, all beautiful, and all mine! Each has their issues but I love them just the same.
#1 – My awesome husband. He may not be perfect but he’s mine and he’s perfect in my eyes. That’s all that matters!
What are you thankful for? Please share! This is one of the most important, unsung holidays! Let’s all share and be thankful for the things that we have. Everyone is more fortunate than someone else. So please, be thankful for what you have! Don’t skip this holiday! It’s a beautiful thing! And thank you!
