1. Goes without saying that I am thankful for my kids. They drive me crazy a lot of the time but they are mine and I am a better person for having them. They keep me on my toes and they make me smile and laugh. They make me pull out may hair too but it’s all character building right? Seriously, I got pretty lucky with my kids. They are both smart and funny. They remind me of what is really important and they me remember that it is the simple things in life that really matter. I am proud and honored to be their mom.

2. I am thankful for my health. My butt is much better now.

3. I am thankful for modern appliances like the washing machine and dishwasher. My days would be never ending if I didn’t have these time saving appliances. Now if the clean-up fairy would make her way to my living room I would be grateful.

4. I am thankful for all of the friends I have made in the virtual world this past year. I haven’t met them all face to face yet but some of them I feel as if I have known all my life and they have made my life richer because I know them.

5. I am thankful that I am hosting Thanksgiving this year. I get to cook what I want and I don’t have to drive all over town. Because of #1 and #3 cleanup is a breeze.
