Five Things I'm Thankful For

Hope all you Americans out there had a great Thanksgiving with yummy turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, and pumpkin pie! :)

 
I got a nasty stomach flu virus the day before Thanksgiving, which almost derailed our plans. I haven't been laid out by an illness so thoroughly in years. It wasn't pretty. Fortunately, it was a 24 hour thing and I was able to go visit my grandparents and other immediate family for the weekend. It was so good to see them that it inspired me to make a list of the top five things I'm thankful for:

 
  1. My husband. For too many reasons to list. :)
  2. My kids. They're great, and they took care of me when I was sick, and even made a point not to get overly energetic and refrained from arguing with each other. Which is good, because I couldn't even get out of bed. :)
  3. My family. They're the greatest.
  4. My friends. They're fun, supportive, and interesting. I'm lucky to have met them.
  5. My agent. There's none better.


Even though I don't have everything I want, I have a lot. And I'm grateful for it all.
 
What are you thankful for?

I'm glad your stomach bug didn't ruin Thanksgiving for you. I'm thankful for a lot too. I can echo your list. :)

Friends and family always top my list of things for which I'm thankful! After those, I'm thankful we arrived home safely from our trip to visit family this past weekend.

I hate traveling, but at least my husband didn't make me fly!

Happy Holidays!

I'm thankful for friends and family and that we could spend the day together. So glad your stomach bug didn't spoil everything.

Good list. It's good to take stock *at least* once a year.

Great list...except for the being sick part. That sucks. Hope you're fully recovered!
