Thankful Thoughts

I love Thanksgiving. It's my absolute favorite holiday. The vast amount of food is of course just a compliment to the wonderful people we surround ourselves with during this holiday feast. Sad thing is, I don't take too much time to think about what I'm grateful for on this day of thanks.

I'm grateful for almost too many things to list. Health, family, my beautiful baby boy, friends, my job, food on the table... The list goes on. The only time I usually dedicate to this list is when I'm thinking of something to say when we go around the table to give thanks.

I try to think beyond the most obvious. There are so many other things to be thankful for - that I'm able to afford to put gas in my car, that I have a wonderful in-home babysitter, that I have socks and shoes, I'm able to keep my house warm, the fact that it hasn't snowed yet and it's almost December (knock on wood), that my child is well behaved...

What are some of the less obvious things you're grateful for?

Morning coffee, my daughter's curls, and the fact I'm getting much closer to being out of debt! That was fun.

I am thankful that I can dunk my cat into a bathtub and he still curls up and purrs with me at night. :) That I'm keeping my apt warmer this winter and not worrying as much about the bill...that I can someday buy a house of my own. :)
