let us give thanks

I wish it didn’t take an annual holiday to consider things that we should be thankful for each and every day, every hour and every minute, but once a year is better than never, I suppose. My friend, Anisa, recently posted her list and inspired me to do the same.

Things my serious self is thankful for:

God’s unending grace – I am a walking, talking, mistake-making mess.
My dear family – I know everyone thinks their family is the best, and that’s the way it should be. I just love mine.
The Twins – Even though they make us absolutely crazy sometimes, they can be so sweet. Plus, who would I buy clothes for if I didn’t have them?
My husband – I’m so fortunate to have Kell. Without him, I would always forget my cell phone or burn down the house because I left the curling iron on. Not to mention he’s really cute.
A warm home – Every time I feel cold at night, my thoughts immediately go to those less fortunate who aren’t spending these winter evenings in a house with four walls and a roof.
My friends – Good friends are truly special gifts. What more can you say?
A good job – In a time when so many are without one, I’m so thankful to have mine.

Things my silly self is thankful for:

Text Messaging
Curling Irons
Half-camis and half-shirts
Cute outfits
McDonald’s ice cream cones
Clorox wipes
InStyle magazine

Happy Thanksgiving to you all.
Gobble gobble!
