Reflections

There are so many things I am thankful for, there isnt enough space to write it all out.

First and foremost I am thankful for my husband.  I could not have married a better man.  His love for me is sometimes overwhelming.  He is a great friend, and lover. Sometimes I wonder what I did to deserve such a wonderful man (you all can stop gagging now)

I am thankful for my semi-normal up brining, for my parents unconditional love, for my education.

I am am thankful for my siblings, I couldn't imagine growing up as an only child.  Not only do you miss out on having brothers, and sisters.  You miss out on having nieces and nephews as well.  I consider my sisters my best friends.  My brother and I have grown closer over the last two years.  I thank them all for allowing me to be apart of their children's life.

I am thankful for good health,  wealth, plenty of food, and a lovely house that keeps us warm.

I am thankful that I have been entrusted  to care for someone else's child.  Foster care has opened my eyes to a whole new world.  Who knew a four year old could have so much emotional/behavioral baggage

I am thankful that we have been give the right tools to help Lil' Man grow. To watch him smile, to see him experience something for the first time.

I am thankful for good friends, both those in real life, and those online.  Who knew you could learn so much from people you have never even met.  It's good to "talk" to people who have been there done that.

What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?
