Did you think I forgot to be thankful?

I really did not. I am so thankful for so many things. And what about this oh so snowy Thanksgiving? I am thankful for that, I loved having my family home with my last night in my cozy little house with a cozy fire in the fireplace.
This year brought so much to be thankful for. Some things unexpected. The things for which I am most thankful this year include:

My lovely family, all included but more than anything Curtis and Deacon who make up my days and fill my heart.
Seeing my sister in Scotland and seeing more of Gods beautiful earth, it gave me a great thanks for the world I live in.
Going back to where Curtis served his mission and feeling first hand how much the people loved him and what a good man he is.
Living in the neighborhood I live in, where on a really bad day I cried to three different girls in my ward (on accident really) but all three thought nothing of it and just gave me a hug. Where on Sunday someone knew I was sick and I looked out my window to see my walks getting shoveled.
The weekly email that comes from my Dad, it is always a bright spot in my week, if we could just edit out the weekly paragraph about golf we would be golden.
For food and health and for my body.
Friendships that I simply could not do without. Knowing that when I need someone I have so many people to ask for help.
Prayers being answered.
Being able to give of my time and talents has brought me so much joy.
Laughing each day, I am surrounded by people who make me laugh and smile.
Thankful to be who I am where I am even if it is challenging at times, I am thankful.

I am so thankful you got to come here too. I was looking at the pictures on your blog about all our adventures the other day. I couldn't believe how much we crammed in and how much I laughed. And lizzed. Love you so much. Have a great Thanksgiving!
