Thanksgiving Blessings

It was a rough day. So rough that I have no pictures of the day because quite frankly I don't want to remember it.

That said- I'm counting my blessings. I took some time to hang out with the girls tonight and watch a movie. (The Incredibles) We enjoyed being all snuggled up together on my big king size bed- and giggled our way through the movie. I love hearing them laugh. It's the best medicine around.

Here are some things I am thankful for:
  • wonderful children who make me smile and remember why my life is so good
  • smelly dogs who greet me at the door- wagging their tails- even though I forgot to feed them before I left
  • a good friend who helped me clean my kitchen today
  • a bed big enough to let 3 children snuggle together with mom in
  • a family who doesn't understand what I am going through- yet special and wonderful none-the-less
  • leftovers
Blessings are wonderful, and even when sadness is overwhelming- I'm thankful to have things to be thankful for...
