Not a day goes by when I don't thank the powers that be, for my amazing children:
Not a day goes by when I don't curse those same amazing children, but I'm also thankful for the ability to curse creatively so as to not teach them too many words that might cause me trips to the principal's office.
I am thankful for my amazing husband.
Of course, like every other (honest) couple, we've had our...um, differences, but we always work it out. When it comes right down to it, as much as I feel I've had to give up to stay at home with my children, he has sacrificed just as much, if not more, to make that possible for me. (I'm also thankful for those boots.)
I'm thankful for my parents:
Without whom I'd be seriously lost.
I'm so thankful for my brother:
Even if he did chase me around the house with a knife when we were little, I adore him. He is seriously one of my best friends.
I'm thankful for antidepressants. I'm also grateful that lobotomies are no longer considered a viable option for mental illness.
Even though money is so tight it is often invisible, I am thankful that we have a roof over our heads, food on the table, clothes on our bodies and shoes on our feet...I am thankful for my real world friends and I'm just as thankful for my friends in the blogosphere. I'm thankful for vanilla flavored coffee and orange juice, gravity, running water and electricity.
And books...oh, so grateful for books. Oh, and Nickelodeon.
To those who are celebrating tomorrow, I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!
