I do feel thankful this year - I think I always will.
For the important, the mundane, and the silly things in life.
I am thankful for my boys (exasperation included) and my family. I am thankful they are healthy, full of adventure, and happy. And I am thankful there isn't quite as much pee on the toilet seat as there used to be...
I am also thankful for when I get to sleep in. Or nap.
I am thankful for my friends. For laughs, company, and grown-up conversation.
I am thankful for good food; wine; lipstick; a nice new pair of slippers.
I am thankful for our healthcare system, my wonderful doctors and nurses, and my $30,000 worth of medication - all for free.
I am thankful for good books, good TV, and amusing, junky social media.
I am thankful for being able to focus on my kids and my health - without the added stress of work and commuting. I am lucky we can afford to do this.
All things considered, I'm a pretty fortunate gal.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
