Being Thankful

Different to other years, this year’s celebration of Thanksgiving Day seems to be more meaningful. As I reflect on the year that has gone by, the emotions are running higher than normal, and I realize that I have so much to be thankful for.

For my amazing husband for his love, support and being a part of my life for over 14 years. This year marks our first Thanksgiving as a married couple, and the fact that so much has changed in the USA to be able to say that is something to be very thankful for.

For the ongoing health of my family – both local and distant. While the year has had some experience health issues, everyone seems to be healthy and keeping their spirits high. Happy that my mother and sister (and aunt) will be returning to visit in 2014.

For our furry family members. Colby is slowing down a little, but he continues to bring us joy every day. Max has become a part of the family, and adds some humor to the household (yes, we laugh at him [he can’t read]). It is our first Thanksgiving without Bosley. I still miss him every day, and am thankful that he shared so many Thanksgivings with us. Our lives changed because of him.

For our friends – both old and new. We have been very fortunate to meet some amazing new people this year, and build on our friendships from years gone by.

For everyone that has touched our lives this past year, thank you and Happy Thanksgiving!
