The Life

Give Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
I have spent a lot of time thinking and reflecting on all of the things that I am thankful for.  Also figured I would write it here, because the Thanksgiving scrooge, I mean, my sister Jessica, requested we don’t all announce our thanks around the table again.  Haha.  I’m going to make her do it anyways.

Here’s what I have decided after coming up with a list of thanks to give.

Life is all about the glass.  You know the one.  Is it half full?  Half empty?  I promise, if you view your glass half full, you will find you are grateful for so much more.  I am finding myself grateful of things that even drive me bananas just by changing my perspective and outlook on the situation.

First and foremost I am thankful for my husband.  Unfortunately my sweet munch is in Houston today for work and will not be able to celebrate Thanksgiving with us.  I could spend the day upset.  Whining.  Miserable.  But why?  To make a sucky situation worse?  Not worth it.  Instead I am feeling thankful for my husband.  Thankful that he is working hard to support his family.  My husband proves to me everyday that he would do anything for me and the minster.   He is my best friend, he loves me unconditionally, he is my biggest supporter and besides yelling at me for being messy, he truly believes that I am great.  He is everything I could have asked for in a husband and for him, I am so thankful.

Of course I am thankful for my #1 girl.  Miss Mini.  My hyperactive, energizer bunny, cookie loving, temper throwing, firecracker of a daughter.   She is funny, wild, moody, independent, and quite frankly just like her mama.  For that I am thankful.  She may look like daddy, but she has my stellar personality.  😉   I am thankful for my sweet girl even when she wakes me up at 2 am and finally falls back asleep with her feet in my face, because I know how lucky I am to have her.

I am thankful that little baby J is growing perfectly.  We are so excited for this addition to our family.  I am thankful that Mini will have a brother to grow up with.  Hopefully she will learn how to share quickly.  Thank you baby J for making this pregnancy go by super quick and pretty painlessly.  I cannot wait to meet you sweet boy.

Thankful for all of my family and friends.  There are far too many people to list.  You know who you are, and if you don’t know why I love you, just ask.  I may not always show it, but I am thankful for each and everyone of you.  Especially MY mama.  Who managed to get her fingers sliced by a blender this week and is still trooping to put out a Thanksgiving feast.  Don’t ask me to tell the story, I still don’t think I am ready to relive that.  Nor do I think my poor mom wants to read my sarcastic tale of how it happened.  Please note that she is fine and still has all 10 fingers.

So my Thanksgiving words of wisdom are to look at life differently this year.  Be grateful for what you have.  Even if you want more.  Be thankful for the people in your life.  Even if they drive you nuts.  Fill your glass up so that it’s half full.  You will be happier.  I promise.

Don’t forget to eat until your belly hurts!  Gobble Gobble!
