Happy Turkey Day

While I realize there aren't many bloggers lurking on the Internet today I just wanted to do a short post about my favorite holiday.

I -love- Thanksgiving.

And it's not about the food, really. Mostly it's about the fact that its a holiday to be thankful. This year I am blessed to have so much to be thankful for. So in true elementary school fall play fashion I am going to tell you what I'm thankful for.

I am thankful for my children. Pumpkin and Booger make me smile and light up my world. They are hilarious, and I am proud to call them mine.

I am thankful for Jeeves. He is the butter to my toast, the batman to my robin, the rum in my coke, I love him, a lot.

I am thankful for my Mom. She is the coolest mom ever and I want to grow up to be just like her.

I am thankful for my size 14 jeans. They are the big shiny gold "look what I've done" badge and they make me feel strong and successful.

I am thankful to have a home. After a somewhat stunted journey to adulthood, I own a home. It's a mobile home, but it's mine, it's where my heart is.

I am thankful for this blog, and all of you. Your comments and support have been instrumental on this journey. I feel connected to you though we've never met.

I am thankful for my faith. It was in crisis for awhile but now fills me with calm and peace. I'm not a thumper, but I know the awesome contentment of a solid belief in Jesus Christ and how he has saved me from myself.

I'm thankful for slim fast, no joke, the creamy breakfast substitute has been a lifesaver. I believe it will become a part of my diet forever, like some people do with McDonald's... ;0)

That is by no means the extent of the things I am thankful for, but it's a good list, and I don't want to be too verbose.
