Much to be Thankful for

I am 99% certain that I will not have time to blog tomorrow. While we are hosting a rather small group this year (10 instead of the 14-16 we usually have), there is still plenty of cooking, visiting and enjoying to be done. I know my mother feels bad that I cook every year, but she shouldn't. I really enjoy doing it.

So, I thought, in the spirit of the holiday, I would list all the things I am thankful for, in no particular order...

An awesome 18 year old son
A wonderful new husband
Great parents, Ozzie and Harriet had nothing on my Mom and Dad (although I would bet money that my dad is louder than Ozzie ever thought of being).
Fabulous friends (you really find out who your friends are when the tent is late on your wedding day)
Super In-laws... at least the ones I have met.
A job I thoroughly enjoy.
A lot of great co-workers (not all, but then life can't be perfect)
A nice house
The fact that the elections are less than a year away.
Great blogs
Hope, that my son will continue to grow as a man, that my husband and I have many years to be together, that anyone reading this feels as blessed in life as I do right this minute, that the elected leaders of this country will start listening to the people, that peace will happen in my lifetime.

Happy Thanksgiving.
