I'm Thankful For....

I have so many things to be thankful for this Thankgiving season. SO many things! I truly am incredibly blessed - but sometimes don't we all need a season like this to help us remember how blessed we truly are?
Here are a few things I am thankful for (these are in no particular order):

Even though I said that these are in to particular order, when I think of things I am thankful for, my amazing husband is always the first thing I think of. I am so lucky to have met him, to have fallen in love with him, to have him fall in love with me, and to be married to him for time and eternity. He is my very best friend. Thank you for being mine honey!

Well, the next thing that comes to my mind is my family. I have incredible parents who have always loved me and supported me no matter what. I have a fantastic brother and sister who make me laugh all the time (love you guys!). And I have wonderful in-laws! Not many people can say that they actually like their in-laws, but I am happy to say that I love mine - brothers, sisters and parents-in-law! Not to mention my sweet little nieces and nephews and cousins who I am in love with!

Of course my family overlaps into this section. I have so many great friends. Whether I have known you 10 years or whether we just met, thank you for being my friend. Please know that I love you!

**Work & School**
I love being back in school (even though I sometimes complain about math) and I wouldn't be able to be back in school if it weren't for Jon working so hard at his new job. While we sometimes struggle financially, we are able to keep a'float because Jon works his hiney off! We recognize how blessed we are to have a job, especially during the holiday season!

**The Church**
I can't imagine my life without without the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I came way to close to finding out during my dating days when I pretty seriously dated a guy who was not a member of the church. Now I look back and I am grateful every day that I chose not to continue that relationship - my life would have been so much different, and not different in a good way. This wraps back around to how grateful I am for Jon! He has such a strong testimony!

**White Fudge Oreos**
More popularly known as "Christmas Oreos" at my house. These Oreos only come out around the holiday season and they bring happiness wherever they go. Tis the season when the Christmas Oreos come out!

**Sweater Season**
It's finally chilly outside and I can start breaking out my sweaters! "It's the most wonderful time of the year"

I'm not just talking about the talents that I have - though I am grateful for the talents that I have - but I am also talking about the talents of people around me! I love being inspired by what everyone around me is able to do! Thank you for sharing your talents with me! I hope I am sharing mine with you!

**The Thanksgiving Parade**
I love Thanksgiving! I love the food, the family time, and I love, love the parade!!! It is without a doubt my favorite parade of the entire year (that includes the Rose Bowl, which I also love)! I hope to one day actually be in New York for the parade, but for now I am more then content to sit on a warm couch with the smell of a cooking turkey wafting through the house and hot chocolate in my hand......aaaaahhh......And then Santa comes down the parade route and brings with him the Christmas Season!!! Woo Hoo!!

I love blogs! I love being able to keep up with everything that my friends are up to through blogs. It's hard sometimes to keep in touch with friends you move away from, but through blogs I have been able to keep friendships that are very dear to me. What a brilliant invention!

Oh my goodness, I have a million more things I could add to this list, and maybe I will before Thanksgiving is over, but for now I need to make some pies for Thanksgiving - it's tomorrow ya know!

Happy, Happy, Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!!
