let us give thanks

It's November, and Thanksgiving is on its way. I'm still in Canada, and it's alone time like this that conjures up warm and fuzzy feelings about home. God has been so good to my family and me, and I could go on for days about all the gifts He's given us. With all the hype, uber-commercialism and all-around craziness of Christmas, my favorite holiday is often overlooked. It's easy to get consumed with purchasing gifts for family and friends and forget about things that we already have that we're thankful for. But, here are just a few things (in absolutely no particular order), both intangible and material, that I'm grateful I’ve been given:

God’s unconditional love
a loving husband
bad/sweet puppies
being an American
DVR, the poor man's TiVo
Hand sanitizer
Mississippi State
good friends, old and new
hair on my head
Old Navy
XM Radio
supportive parents
a fun sister
great work friends
Clorox wipes
digital cameras
wise and wonderful grandparents
the CHI
Weight Watchers
great in-laws
blue jeans
Emily Post's Etiquette
laughter (courtesy of
The Office among other things)

What are YOU thankful for?
