Turkey Day..YIPPEE

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and enjoy being with friends and family.

I love Thanksgiving, it's a great time to really reflect on all that we have been given. No pressure about presents. Just getting together with family and friends. Having a nice meal.

I am so thankful for all the Lord has blessed me with. I have a great husband (who deserves a medal sometimes for putting up with me), a great little boy that loves his mommy and is such a joy to be around (well, 99% of the time), a wonderful family of in-laws that has taken me in and counted me as one of their own, 2 of the best friends that a girl could ask for (more like sisters than friends), my church and my testimony and the fact that my husband now has his own testimony, Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ for loving me and always being there (they really do know each of us individually and our circumstances and want to help), all the friends that I have out here in cyberspace, I have met some amazing people that lift, inspire and make me laugh. I'm thankful for our home, our health, our abundance of all that we need.

I have to be honest that when I sat down to post, I was feeling a bit grumpy but listing out all that I have been given has turned my attitude around 360 degrees. What are you all thankful for? I really should start adding something that I'm thankful for to each post. Maybe I'll try to list 3 to 5 things each time. Yep, I'm going to do that. Keep me honest if you see that I forget.

Happy Thanksgiving!!! Gobble Gobble.

I know a blogger who has a notebook where she records everything she's grateful for as she thinks of it, then reads it when she's having a bad day. I keep meaning to do the same. =) Happy Thanksgiving!

This was happy and uplifting, and I really enjoyed it!

My daughter and I cooked our family's Thanksgiving meal yesterday so that we could have my parents over. It was a wonderful time, even if I was exhausted afterward, haha! Today I'm being a lazy bum, reading blogs...we're going to my SIL's house for a huge gathering, and all I have to make is the mashed potatoes! So right now I'm very thankful for a relaxing day! :)

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving.

Isn't it wonderful to stop and count our blessings!!!
I like the idea of adding the one thing we're grateful to each post--sometimes we have those grumpy days where we don't want to find anything, but forcing us to would definitely help.

Happy Tday...
May the Lord bless you all.
Congrats on getting all your shopping done! Jealousy here for sure.
I haven't gone ONE yet.
