First and foremost, I am thankful for my family. As much as they can drive me crazy, we have two beautiful boys who can be absolutely charming and cute. I have a wonderful husband who encourages me to pursue my passions. Neither of us is perfect, but I think we are pretty perfect together. We have great parents who are actually friends. No worrying here if someone will feel slighted. (How great is it that my mother-in-law invites my parents to Thanksgiving so we can all be together?)
I'm so grateful that we are all more or less healthy. Yes, Sam has officially been diagnosed with asthma as of yesterday, but that is something minor in the grand scheme of things. He has only had symptoms when his lungs have already been taxed by a cold.
I'm very thankful that Chris has a steady job and we haven't been overly effected by the recent financial problems. We can pay our bills each month, we have a roof over our heads, and we've only had to make minor adjustments in our budget.
I'm happy the tornado sirens at 5 o'clock this morning heralded a severe storm and any tornados missed us.
We have many, many wonderful friends, and we are all very thankful to have each and every one.
I'm thankful that the boys are growing up and gaining independence. Having one out of diapers and one working on potty training is amazing, especially after years of diapers. Being able to sleep a little longer in the morning because they can get up and play quietly is priceless.
