Giving Thanks

So with Thanksgiving coming up next week, I am feeling a little sentimental at all the things I have to be thankful for. In the past, Thanksgiving was just a day to eat all day (preferably at moms so I'm not too busy to eat..), however holidays take a whole new meaning when you have a child. It becomes important to get the message across that its a special day.

Last year, Thanksgiving was just another gathering of family at mom's house to show off Baby K. After all, she was only just shy of 3 months...

For me, it was a chance to get to eat a hot meal while someone else looked after the baby! ( you know how impossible that is when you have a new baby)

This year, I feel.... THANKFUL   

 I'm thankful that God gave us a beautiful gift of a precious little girl who has brightened my world.

I'm thankful to have a job in this crazy world where our unemployment rate is a whopping 9.1%. ( I may have lots of days that I complain about my job, but still thankful to have one...)

I'm thankful to have food in the fridge. ( which reminds me, that fridge needs a good cleaning)

I'm thankful for being in good health. ( I need to stay that way, I've got my daughters wedding to plan in ooh.. lets say 25 years?)

I'm thankful for my hubby and his quiting smoking regular cigarettes and now using an electronic cigarette.

I'm Very thankful for having a Happy, Healthy baby. ( happy is just as important as healthy)

I'm thankful to have a partner, a best friend, and a supportive husband who stands behind me no matter what.

I'm thankful to have my mom close to me. ( close in distance and close to my heart)

I'm thankful to have my in-laws back in our lives and to share Baby K with them.

I'm thankful for all of the wonderful changes that have happened  in my life and so many more to come :)
