Thankful Day 4

Today I am thankful for the familiar. Familiar people, familiar places and familiar routines. It's nice to know people and feel like you belong somewhere.

Thankful Day 3

Today I am thankful that we had a successful family baking experience. My three sisters and I were at my mom and dad's and we all baked Christmas cookies. We made 5 different kinds...not sure how many total, but we all came away with quite a few to enjoy now and some to save for our family Christmas on December 27th. We all seemed to enjoy ourselves and no one got mad at anyone. And even though we are all tired, I think that we all had a good time and are glad that Mom suggested the idea.

Thankful Day 2

I know, I know, I missed saying what I was thankful for yesterday. So, here is what I was thankful for yesterday...

I'm thankful to have seen the first snowflakes of the season! I LOVE SNOW!!!!

I know I haven't blogged in a while. I really have no excuse.

I meant to start this yesterday, but I was too busy. So, I'll do it today.

I have a friend or two who have been posting all month what they are thankful for. Kind of a way to get in the Thanksgiving spirit. I realized this week that I was not at all in the Thanksgiving spirit. In fact, I wasn't very thankful at all. So, I decided that I'd start on the 25th of November and post something every day that I'm thankful for until Christmas...or New Years. I'm hoping that that will also put me in the Christmas spirit.

Today...I am thankful that I can come home. I am thankful that I can still come home to the place where I was raised. I am thankful that I can be surrounded by family and friends. I am thankful that it is a place that lets me unwind and leave the stress behind. I am thankful that I can come home.
