To a T
Pumpkin Stuffed With Everything Good v.2

So Much


I am usually in awe of the bounty around me.  I have so much to be thankful for.  And while this is the case every day, I certainly think about it with more intention in November, the season of Thanksgiving.


This week, in celebration of Thanksgiving, here are Ten Things I'm Thankful For:

  1. A Firm Foundation -- My Mom and Dad raised my sister and I in a home filled with love, support, and encouragement.  This has served me well all my life, and I am so thankful.
  2. Finding the Love of My Life -- Tom and I have been married for thirty years.  Sharing the sentiment of Jerry Maguire, we "complete" each other.  I thank my lucky stars every day.
  3. Watching them Grow -- I loved my kids - fiercely - from the beginning, but I had no idea how wonderful it would be to watch them . . . unfold. . . into the adults they are becoming.  What a pleasure to see them become such warm, engaging, intelligent, and risk-taking (both of them!) adults. What gifts!
  4. Continuing the Story -- My sister and I were buddies as we grew up (well, most of the time; we did have our moments).  I love being able to stay close as we grow older - and from a distance, folding each other's husbands and children into our lives.  We have such fun, and I am so grateful for her continuing support and love.
  5. Wanna Play? -- I enjoy the company of my friends, and appreciate the extra dimension they add to my life.  I am grateful for my real-life friends and my virtual friends.  You are all wonderful.
  6. Tail-Wagging -- Oh, Jenny!  What would I do without her company?  I am so thankful for my trusty companion.  She makes every day a happy day.
  7. Living Well -- I am healthy.  I am fit.  I am cancer-free.  (I have hair.)  I will never take my health for granted, and I am grateful for every moment.
  8. Finding my Passions -- Through the years, I have nurtured activities that stimulate my creativity and fuel my soul.  Reading.  Knitting.  Gardening.  Travel.  Yoga.  Cooking.  These activities bring balance to my life and joy to my days, and I am so thankful.
  9. Four Seasons -- Although I do my share of complaining about the weather, I really am grateful to live in a place where the seasons parade past my window.  I enjoy elements of each season.  (I really do.)  And I'm happy to be planted right here. . . just where I am.
  10. Having Enough -- Basically, I'm thankful that I have enough. . . of what I need. . . to do the things I want to do.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!

Lovely list. Every day I think of the abundance in my life. Too many people have too little. Thank you for the many ways you have touched my life. Here you are miles away, but I see you in my life daily. My favorite blue teapot came from you and the crocheted bird you made greets me daily, too. Then there is the blog, and comments resulting in emails. An added dimension is the books we share. Friendship is a very lovely feeling indeed.


Great list - Happy ToT!


Wonderful list! Although, I am a little disappointed that Jenny was only #6. ;^)


What a wonderful list Kym!
