Thing I am giving Thanks for!

Veering slightly off the norm to post in honor of Thanksgiving, the things I am thankful for, just a few things.

The boy. I am so glad that he is still here and in my life and such a wonderful part of it. I am so lucky to have such a wonderful friend, partner and someone to share my love with. He brings joy to my life and smiles to my heart everyday, I am one lucky girl and thankful that he is here to share some turkey with (although he is so obsessed with turkey I will be lucky if he shares).

My health. I feel good, which is a good sign. Most of the time, a headache here or there and tired from time to time but for the most part I feel so much better than I did just a couple of months ago. I guess my heart isn't as heavy. I have been using that airborne stuff too so that I don't get sick because once I do it knocks me on my butt.

Family. Mine has grown in the last year considering the fact that the boys family has become such a big part of my own life. I have enjoyed getting to know them and spending time with them. I also of course just absolutely treasure every moment I get to spend with my niece and nephews. Their laughter just makes me melt and the silly things they do and say make for such special memories.

Friends. Oh this is a fun one. I have been so fortunate to have so many wonderful people come into my life in the past year. Each one brings their own unique styles, thoughts and messages which add to my own life in such a way that it is like a special gift everyday. I actually just said last night that I am so lucky to be able to learn something new every day and it is the people that have come into my life in the past year that help bring me those things.

Happiness. I think that all those things just kind of lead to this conclusion.

Hope you all have a very Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!!!

That photo of you and your niece and neephews (at the lake?) is just beautiful.

D. swears by Airborne. Sometimes I worry he may O.D. on it!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Jilly!
