So Many Things To Be Thankful For

I have so many things to be thankful for. Here's just a few iin no particular order:
  • Two beautiful boys that make me smile
  • A great husband that I love so much
  • A job that pays enough for M to stay home, but doesn't stress me out
  • Diet coke in the morning
  • Warm blankets on my bed
  • Hair scrunchies to hold my hair out of my eyes
  • A calm between two snow storms that allowed us to drive to M's parents house for Thanksgiving
  • People who read my blog and make comments
  • A safe car to drive in the snow
  • Hot chocolate with little marshmellows
  • A son who loves to do crafts with me (T)
  • A son who loves to watch airplane shows with M (R)
  • A great elementary school that teaches R music, art, and art appreciation, language arts, gym, Spanish, as well as the three R's
  • Family all across the country
  • 8:00 bedtime for the boys, which gives me a couple of hours before I go to bed
  • Songs, singing, and a family who loves to sing
  • Dolly Parton, who gave us "A Coat of Many Colors" -- the current bedtime favorite"
  • "Too many kisses" - a game both boys play with me in which they compete with each other on who can give me the most kisses
  • Books, libraries, and Scholastic book orders
  • My comfy red chair
  • God who loves me even when I haven't even started looking for a church yet
  • The boys' prayers at dinner time -- T usually thanks God for "having a wonderful day" and R asks that God "make sure our family gets home safely"
  • M's love for me and all the sweet things he does to show me he loves me

I hope every one had a great Thanksgiving!

Things that made me smile while reading your list (well, they all did but here are my favorites):

Your almost no stress job that pays enough for M to stay home.

Dolly's "Coat of Many Colors" bedtime favorite.

Too many kisses.

M's love for you and all the sweet things he does to show it.

I'm glad you had a nice Thanksgiving . . . and we are so looking forward to the family-altogether-at-Christmastime!

I got teary eyes at the many things you are thankful for. So many blessings!! I'm thankful for a neice who realizes she has so many things to be thankful for. I'm thankful for all the family who showed up on Thanksgiving and made it such a great day. I'm thankful for a husband who made such a delicious turkey and dressing, and all the family members who contributed to our dinner. I'm thankful for R teaching me how to play chess over the telephone. Sure looking forward to seeing you guys at Christmas.
