A Thankful Heart and a Special Note to My Readers

Couple Christmas PhotoHappy Thanksgiving, everyone!

I know these days can be a little hectic, depending on your holiday plans.  Some of you may be cooking a big family dinner, while others may be traveling to visit family. Some of you may even be working and unable to spend some or all of the day with your families and friends. But, wherever you are and whatever your plans, I hope that you have even just one moment to stop and reflect on the parts of your life for which you are most thankful.

I know that today, and every day, I am thankful for so many things. I am thankful for Arnie, to be able to come home every night to someone I love, who makes me laugh all the time, and who is so thoughtful and caring. I am thankful for my growing family, especially the little ones in all of their innocence. I am thankful to have a job that challenges me every day, and to be able to have a hobby that challenges me in completely different ways, both of which help me to grow and push me outside of my comfort zone. I am thankful for the home that we live in and the experiences that we share. Everyday, life surrounds me with so many blessings, and for all of them I am so thankful.

I am also thankful for you guys, my readers. You are such a big part of what makes this blog so much fun. I love that I’ve been able to connect with people within my city, across the country and across the world. You all mean the world to me, and I love getting to know you. Thank you, truly, for following along with me and sharing your stories and thoughts with me. I am so grateful for your support.

And now, it’s time for one of my favorite traditions: the Macys Thanksgiving Day parade.

Have a wonderful holiday everyone!
