What are you Thankful for?

Well, ladies, it is Thanksgiving time and I did this post last year and received some amazing answers.
I will begin by telling you all what I am thankful for.

I am thankful for my family. I am thankful that we are all healthy, that we all have wonderful things happening in our lives and that we love the Lord and each other.

I am thankful that I am 40 years old and still have all of my Grandparents living except for my Grandpa Jim who passed away 16 years ago.

I am grateful for my Aunt who I love to the core of my being. She has been so strong during my Grandmother's bout with lung cancer and I thank her for taking on the responsibilities she has. I am coming home soon to help you.

I am thankful for my friends and for their love and loyalty. Some of them old and some of them new.

I am thankful for this blog and for the people it has brought into my life. I have learned so much about courage and faith through all of you. I know that some of you ladies will be my friends for all my life. You know who you are :)

there are so many things that I am thankful for. At night when I go to bed I always jot down 5-things that I have to be thankful for. The constant in my life of course is my children and their good health.

I just wanted to tell you that I am thankful that our paths have crossed. And, I am honoured to know someone who reaches out like you do.

I am thankful that Josie's open-heart surgery was a complete success and have confidence in Josie's hand surgeon and his skills with her next surgery.

I am thankful that I have employment that supports and encourages me to take care of my family.

I am thankful for family that continues to amaze and bless me each day.

I am thankful for all the support and friendships I have made over this past year as we completed our adoption journey.

I am Thankful for a full day with my hubby today. We both have the day off, and the kids have school. That rarely happens.
I am also thankful for my job and the endless laughs and smiles those kiddos bring me.
And of course, I am thankful for my boys, and that they haven't given up hope on Arianna coming home.
Happy Thanksgiving, my friend.

I am thankful that my FIL is not suffering anymore and is instead having a Thanksgiving Feast at the foot of the King.

I am thankful that my grandmother just turned 80 years old.

I am thankful we choose to live a life of simplicity, with very little stress and chaos typically.

I am thankful for the Tongginator - her effervescent personality, joy, good health and inner beauty.

I am thankful for wonderful friends..and my bloggy friends like YOU who make this journey so much more meaningful

I am thankful for our church family who have been such a huge support

I am thankful that since we thought we'd be in VN now and I didn't make plans for Thanksgiving that when I jokingly asked if anyone would feed us I got a ton of response from those who genuinely meant we could come..most were way too far away... but we are going to a friend's house tomorrow (thanks Tracy)

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!

I am thankful for my beautiful family and that I get to spend Thanksgiving with both of my parents. A lot of my friends have lost parents this year, so it really makes me appreciate mine being here. I am thankful for the life I have been blessed with and for the people who God has placed in my path.

Happy Thanksgiving!
