Happy Belated Thanksgiving!
What a special year this is when it comes to things for which I am ever so thankful. I don't think I properly gave due thanks on Thanksgiving Day, and I'd like to take a moment to be thankful.
I am thankful for the simple things in life that make you stop and enjoy the moment, like the crackling of a fire in the fireplace, the smell of coffee, the sweetness of our playful pup galloping around the backyard, a little kick in the belly from my unborn baby girl reminding me she is there and a simple good night kiss every night from my best friend (well, both of them, my dog and my husband).
I am thankful for my family, their patience listening to me babble and their confidence in me. I am so lucky to have such a wonderfully supportive family and to have married into such loving in-laws as well. I am so thankful for my husband and our big sweet pup, and most thankful that we are expecting a new member to our immediate family this spring.
I am thankful for my friends, and the bonds that we have that only grow stronger over the years as we face challenges, set backs, loss and triumph together. I could not be more proud of them all.
I am thankful for laughter. It is my medicine. I am also thankful for tears. They heal.
I am thankful to be doing something I love as my "job" (if you can call it that). I love being creative and using my artistic right-brain. I love working with my friends and friends of friends, and helping them to express themselves and their businesses through visual communication.
Lastly, I am thankful for this outlet. My blog has allowed me to express myself and share my interests, and has forced me to reconnect with my creative self. I am really thankful (and amazed) that someone besides just me actually reads my blog. Thank you!
I could go on and on, but this about covers my general thanks. What are you most thankful for this year?
