I have many many things to be thankful for, and not just because Thanksgiving is later this week. But hey, if people want the list now, then now they shall get it.
I am thankful for my family and friends. Duh. Of course I am thankful for them. But if I want people to read my words, I need to find a way to make my list different from the rest. So here goes.
I am thankful for my sense of humor that allows me to get through the darkest of days. I am also thankful that Miranda recently said I was the funniest person she knows. Even funnier than her uncles. That is a major win.
I am thankful for the Weight Watchers app which has taught me (AGAIN) how to eat properly and take care of myself with correct nutrition and has assisted me with becoming the person I want to be.
I am thankful for the people that listen to my stories and want to hear about both of my daughters.
I am thankful that Miranda is enjoying kindergarten and has such a passion for learning. I am also so glad that her teacher just invited me to come in during Hanukkah to teach her class about the holiday and hand out dreidels.
I am thankful that we joined a synagogue this year and that Miranda sees it as a safe place where she can learn and sing and be free.
I am thankful for the way my husband looks at me.
I am thankful that I found a job this year that is way more than a "job". WAY more.
I am thankful for each and every butterfly that I see that reminds me of Allie.
I am thankful for our two new kitty cats which have brought such joy and light into our home. (I am not as thankful for vet bills and kitty litter).
I am thankful for people sharing their stories and lives with me. What an honor.
I am thankful that I am so loved.
Take a few moments this week to think about what matters most to you. Then give thanks.
