In some twisted way, I am blessed

I am thankful for so many things. My gratitude spans 365 days, but this is the season to voice that which I am thankful for.

First and foremost I am thankful that I am able to clothe my children.

Build-a-Bear clothes

Even if they still choose to wedge themselves
into clothes meant for a Build-a-Bear!

I am thankful that I am able to provide toys for my children's amusement.

Even if it means that I have a mess to clean up afterwards.

Yes, he was long overdue for a buzz!

Lastly, I am thankful that I am able to put a good meal on all of our plates. Even if I fill the house with smoke, we still eat well.

Not only is it a holiday, but I am also one of those people. You know, those Black Friday shoppers? I'll try to visit and return comments when I can. In the meantime, I hope everyone out there will be surrounded by good food and good people.

What are you thankful for?

My daughter would love to wear a pilgrim's costume. Looks like a fun party.

Perfect post right before thanksgiving. Like you, I'm thankful for my family.

So true! We get so caught up in the daily grind, thinking we don't have enough of this or that, it's great to stop and remind ourselves.
