What are you thankful for?

Whenever I find myself getting complacent my mom and dad are always there to remind me to “Count your blessings.” Although I have a very LONG list of things I am grateful for, here are a few reasons I have for waking up with a smile everyday!


My Family




From my mom and dad, to my brother with his wife and children, I am so lucky to have their support and their encouragement anytime I need it.  They are my #1 supporters and I don’t go a day without speaking to them.


Coco and Prince Charming






They are the perfect companions, filled with love and good spirit! And they are the best guard dogs…not a garbage truck, mailman, or walker-by goes unnoticed!


My good friends!




Where would I be without my frequent walks with Kerstin and Rachel!! You can catch us practicing “zoolander” faces in between running, doing push-ups and crunching!


My fellow hosts!






From Friday’s with Sandra, to weekend craft projects with Jane Treacy and her daughter Deirdre, the host community has become like family to me, and I am grateful for their company and fellowship. 


My Home




Every time I walk through my door, I can feel any stress from the day just melt away.  I am grateful for the home I have cultivated and the peace of mind it brings to me. 

Like I said, there is so much to be grateful for not just on this holiday, but every day. I hope that your list is lengthy and I wish you a day filled with love and laughter.
