Happy Thanksgiving to Everyone

I was reading what I wrote last year on Thanksgiving and realized that (with a few minor changes) everything still applies. So here is last year's list of the things I am thankful for, slightly updated.

An awesome 19 year old son
A wonderful 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 over!
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 newly elected President of this country will do as great a job as we all expect, that peace will happen in my lifetime.

Happy Thanksgiving. Let's all remember that not everyone is as lucky as we are.

Thanks, It's not the greatest day as I am with my in-laws. But I am trying to make the best of it and it is a sacrifice I am willing to make so I can be with my family for Christmas. :-)
Happy Thanksgiving!

You are quite fortunate and it is always important to stop and realize it. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

You enjoy your in-laws? Wow. I believe you and about five other people in this country were giving thanks to their in-laws and were honest about it.

What a great list--thanks for sharing.

Hope your Thanksgiving was as nice as mine was!
