As Thanksgiving approaches - my heart is full

As Thanksgiving approaches, I'm trying to consciously slow down. It seems as if life has switched into fast forward - does anyone else feel that way? It has turned COLD here this past week. Each morning I find myself muttering, "what is it doing so cold already?" then realizing somehow we're on the second half of November - yikes! Wishing you a relaxing, peaceful Thanksgiving week full of family and laughter. Here are a few things from this past week for which I'm grateful:

*visits from old friends*

*daughters of friends themselves becoming friends*

*cold weather bringing stunning sunrises and sunsets*

*the golden hue of the sunlight steaming through clouds on my drive home each evening*

*happy smiles, big hugs, and laughter as I walk in the door*

*sweet words from loving husband*

*cuddling up under warm covers on a cold night*

*watching daughter learn new things and begin to really talk*

*the promise of evenings with family this coming week*

What are you grateful for this week?

I'm grateful for a husband who is working -- he is a teacher. I am grateful that I have been able to saty hom with my kids for the last couple of years. I need to find the strength to make the transition back to the work world since we need to save money for college and retirement.

Come check me out.

oh gosh. so many things.

MY HUSBAND, for one, because my family falls together and stays in line because of his love for us.

I have so much to be thankful for as well - my husband, my children, my warm home, having a decent job, and starting Wednesday - 5 glorious days off! :-)
