These days where we're almost forced to step back and count our blessings are the best. I am thankful for so many things this year!
+ My husband. I won't get in to everything now, but suffice to say, he has been wonderfully patient and understanding lately. He's let me go to bed at 8 if I need to, without even bothering to clean the house. He cooks fabulous dinners every night and never so much as complains about doing the dishes. He's an amazing Dad, and I love listening to him play with Luke.
+ Luke is great. Even though he was up all night last night coughing, I'm blessed that he's a pretty healthy little guy. He's growing in leaps and bounds and every day learning new words. I am so lucky to call him mine.
+ Friends. New, old, and yet to be made, friends are amazing. I have some of the best.
+ Although I might complain about my job, I know I'm blessed to have one to go to, one that allows me to pay the bills, buy clothes, and every now and then, splurge on a little something for myself.
+ This blog. Really! I've met so many great people here, and I've found such a happy, healthy way to vent and share. Thank you to all of you who keep me going.
+ Last, but certainly not least, BACON. Unfortunately, today's meal does not include bacon, but I am thrilled to tell you that one of my students gave a $40 gift certificate to Heavenly Ham (first time ever that I've gotten a THANKSGIVING present!). Now, Shane won't get a ham there because they are precooked, so HELLO $40 worth of bacon! I have thoughts of making myself a bacon dress and eating my way out of it. Is that weird?
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! I hope you have a wonderful day, and I hope you have much to be thankful for as well!
This photo was taken Thanksgiving last year. It's hard to believe how he's grown from a baby to a boy.
