As we prepare to give thanks, I wanted to share what I am thankful for this year. In light of my personal health issues, I have so much to be thankful for.

I am thankful for my wonderful husband! Who knew when I met you almost 15 years ago that I would still be with you now! That doesn't happen often and I am so very thankful that it did for us! You are truly my very best friend, and the best husband anyone could ask for!

I am thankful for my beautiful, fun, spunky daughter! Madison is truly a joy! While I may get tired of the non-stop chatter, and the never ending question asking, you are a pure joy! I am thankful as I watch her turn into this wonderful, caring little person! She loves with fierce loyalty, she cares about others, she loves to play, she loves to "help" with things, she takes great care in being a big sister! She is an amazing little girl!

I am thankful for my wild, rambunctious, loving son! Austin is wonderful little boy! It has been amazing raising both a daughter and a son, watching them grow and change is a wonderful gift! Austin is 100% BOY! But at the same time, he gives the best hugs and kisses! He knows when to be sweet and when to be his rough little self! I love to watch the pure joy on his face when he discovers something new, or spots his daddy when we get home from school, or goes to get Maddie from her class!

I am thankful for my very large, and wonderful family! There are too many of you to go into each individually, that would be one LARGE blog! But I love all of you! Without your support and love I most certainly would not be where I am today!

I am thankful for my new wonderful house! Jeremy and I talk a lot about how now we cannot wait to get home! Those of you that know us well, know we are true home-bodies, even more so now!

With that I say HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!! May all of you have a wonderful day! (And if you want to go Black Friday shopping...Niki & I are planning our TRIP!!)
