SOOOOOOOO....it's almost Thanksgiving! At 6am tomorrow morning my airplane leaves Colorado Springs to head to Indiana to see my dad for about 5 days. I can't wait! Although, I am not looking forward to the 3:30am wake up. But it will be worth it! I haven't been to Indiana in a while. It will be good to see Dad and aunts and uncles and grandparents. I am hoping I don't stuff my face too much this year however, as I cannot afford to gain any turkey pounds. I am already getting a lot 'fluffier' then I would like to be. :)
I think it would be nice for me to list the things I am thankful for since that is what Thanksgiving is all about....and I don't know that I will blog again until after I get back. Where to start? I am thankful for so many thing! First and foremost I am thankful for my large and wonderful family. I am thankful for the closess we all share and that everyone for the most part is happy and healthy. I am very greatful for the wonderful friendships I have made since moving to Colorado. I have some amazing people in my life that I just couldn't live without! I am thankful for a roof over my head and food in my mouth and a car that gets me to work every day. I'm thankful for a wonderful job that helps kids all over the world. I'm thankful for life's small lessons, even the hard ones. I'm thankful that God always loves me even when I don't always understand what He's doing with me. There is just so much to be thankful for! I know that for me, it is so easy to get caught up in the stressful things in life and what I don't have. It is good to step back and just see how good God has been and how much He has truly blessed me. :) I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving! Have fun with family and friends and eat lots of wonderful food!
