Oh, to be grateful, really grateful. Grateful for what you have and the people in your lives. Grateful for the person you are and the people who have had a hand in making you that person. I am grateful, not only for the things I have but for the people in my life.
I am grateful for my parents, and my brother. They have set the base for my life and the building blocks of who I am. They are the ones that taught me to care about myself as well as others. They are the ones that taught me to fight for what I want and to not give up. I think my brother made me the fighter. The one that made me think about how I could change things around to get in my way.
I am grateful for my husband. The man that made me love. The one that stands by my side through the thick and thin. I am grateful for the fact that he can make me laugh, but also that he can make me feel safe and cared for. I am grateful for his ability to provide for our family.
I am grateful for my boys.
For O, who challenges me everyday. The one that makes me stop and think what really matters. The one that gives me a run for my money.
Happy Turkey Day!
