Thank You Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin

A little Sly Stone memory there.
For those who have followed my blog from the beginning, you know that one of my favorite holidays is approaching.  Ah yes, turkey sandwich day is around the corner. Thanksgiving is a time to ponder all those good things we have in life. It is a time to give thanks for the big things, the little things and all the incidental things in between.  And so, I bring you my list of things in my life for which I am most thankful.
I am most thankful for my two beautiful, intelligent, awesome daughters. They are more precious to me than they will ever know.

I am thankful I was able to experience two forms of birth when I had my daughters – with epidural and without epidural. I am more thankful I didn’t have to make a decision between those two methods after my two girls were born.
I am thankful that at my age, I still have a full head of decent hair.  I am more thankful to John Frieda for inventing his foam color product so no one, including me, knows just how much gray is in that head of hair.

I am thankful to my two ex-husbands, each of whom will always hold a special place in my heart. I am more thankful to their wonderful wives who have always welcomed my daughters, and even me, into their lives.
I am thankful to have known love for another person that is so deep, so strong and so unconditional that it takes my breath away.

I am thankful that even though I am not right now where I want to be in my life, I do have a roof over my head and food on the table.
I am thankful for an abundant network of amazing friends who are always there for me. I am more thankful that even though my political views do not always match theirs, they still love and accept me (even though Mikey called me an old lady, LOL).

I am thankful for a little boy who has crawled so deeply into my heart that he can never escape.
I challenge you all to think about those things for which you are thankful, and I double-dog challenge you to find a way to show your appreciation of those things. We all need to know we are loved, needed and desired, so pay it forward.
