A Day of Thanks

I hope you are all having a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with love, happiness and yummy food.  We are in Scottsbluff, NE with my mom today, but we won’t be having our meal until Saturday, so I have more to look forward to.

Today I’ll be watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, possibly some football, spending time with my little family and probably watching Charlie Brown Thanksgiving.  I haven’t quite let me child side go yet.


Since today is all about being thankful, I thought I would write a list of the  things I’m most thankful in my life.  Throughout the month of November, I participated in “The Thankful Project” so I got to think about lots of things I’m thankful for.

I’m Thankful For (in no particular order):

  • My faith
  • Our little miracle – Aiden – and how happy and healthy he is
  • My supportive husband
  • My loving and gracious family
  • Health
  • Our quaint comfortable house
  • Financial security
  • Nutritious food
  • My playful Otis
  • Living in the beautiful State of Colorado that also allows us to be closer to my mom
  • Breastfeeding that has lasted 9 months and is still going strong
  • Feeling all the love I need
  • Friends that feel like family
  • Endless opportunities
  • Feeling safe and secure
  • Our united nation

I could go on and on, but these are the most important parts of my life. Let’s spread extra love today!

What are you thankful for?

  1. Hi Ali. A beautiful list. I love hearing what people are thankful for as it makes me step back and catalog all the blessings in my own life. I’m especially thankful for my little girl. She’s 5 months old and truly the biggest miracle in my world!
