Thankful Thursday

1. I am thankful for my health and the health of my family. Over the last couple of weeks, I've had three friends that have been affected by the health of a family member. You don't realize how lucky you are to have everyone healthy until something happens. My prayers are still with you all.

2. I am thankful for Halloween and how excited the kids get over the decorating, dressing up and pumpkin carving. As you get older, some of the excitement of birthdays (especially your own birthday), Halloween, and other holidays is lacking. It's good to have little ones around to get you in the "spirit" and share their excitement.

3. I am thankful to have a home and as crazy as it may sound, I'm sometimes even happy that it's a small home. No matter where we are in the house, we are always pretty close. I can hear the kids playing (or fighting) in the other room. I hear little giggles and know whenever anyone comes in or out, and of course it's a little less to clean than most people.

Hi Gail!

What a beautiful post! I think we all could be a little more grateful in our lives and complian less, this is such an excellent reminder!! Maybe there would be World Peace lol!?!

I second you on little ones making the holidays more festive. I think if it weren't for mine I possibly would not do a thing.

Have a wonderful weekend!
