It's also had me thinking a lot about how often we give thanks. In my daily life I find I am often too busy worrying about the little details to stop and focus on what is truly important - being thankful for all those little details. So today I am giving thanks.
I am thankful for the people in my life who support me: my husband who wakes up 1/2 hour before me to get my son so I can sleep a little longer in the morning and who does so much to make my life happier, my parents who taught me that I need to make my own decisions and have supported me in every choice I've ever made - good and bad, my sister who always tell me the truth and makes me laugh with hilarious pictures of her dog dressed up as santa claus or a police officer (his halloween costume last year). I am thankful for all the other families in our lives who have become a second family to ours. I am thankful for the wonderful neighbors in my life who we stop and talk with on a daily basis and who make living in our home a genuine pleasure. I am thankful for the people who have chosen to buy my artwork and mobiles thereby allowing me the freedom and time to stay home with my son full-time. I am thankful for the blessings in my life and for the opportunities that are given to me. I am also thankful for all the hardships in my life that allow me to understand that life is not always easy and which have helped me to develop empathy and understanding.
