Since Thanksgiving is a week from tomorrow, I thought I would reflect on my life and "count my blessings." I sometimes get caught up in everyday negativity, and I think it's important to pause and think about all of the good things I have in my life. This may turn into a Gratitude Journal of sorts, and it may not. But I think it's important for me to do this, no matter what I decide to do.
Today I am thankful for my family. Not one of us is perfect, but we make it work. We love each other, and we support each other. I have a husband who has been my source of strength and encouragement for not only the 24+ years that we have been married, but also during the years before our marriage. I have a son who has overcome many challenges and difficulties with humor and love. I have a daughter who is not only a "Mini Me," but who is also talented, smart, and beautiful both inside and out. Yeah, we're pretty O.K.
