Thanksgiving Eve

Today, the day before Thanksgiving, I am feeling thankful. For so many things. It's nice to sometimes just sit and think about the things we are blessed to have. And today I'm feeling completely overwhelmed with all that I have. Unfortunately it's a rare an occasion where I actually ponder and recognize the big and simplest of blessings. But today that changes. Today I am thankful.

I am thankful for family. For a husband who loves me unconditionally, for a mother who worries about me constantly, for a step dad who is smarter than me, for sisters who inspire me, for a dad who knows me, for grandparents and extended family who support me.

I am thankful for a Heavenly Father who loves me.

I am thankful for friends, who are cooler than me, and smarter than me and funnier than me.

I am thankful for my talents and abilities. The ones that come easily to me and the ones I continue to perfect.

I am thankful for my job and for my education. Two things that contribute to making me a better me.

I am thankful for cookies.

I am thankful for technology including but not limited to: my cell phone, the internet, cameras, electricity, netfix.

I am thankful for my home and everything that inside of it, including but not limited to: my bed (ha) I'm glad I have a warm place to sleep at night.

I am thankful for the opportunities and experiences I have had/will have. Even the difficult ones, or as I like to call them "learning experiences".

I am thankful for really good food.

I am thankful for beautiful things. For the arts. For music and interesting buildings, and clothing. For nature and theater and all things enriching.

For the rest of this holiday weekend I hope to keep this spirit with me. What are you thankful for?
