Today is a day set aside for a LOT of
Delicious food, time with friends and family and an opportunity to think about how grateful we are for our blessings. This week has been a tough one… Losing Papa and working through those feelings has given me an opportunity to really examine my
Life and all the blessings I have. The lasagna is in the oven so I’m taking a break to reflect and give thanks for everything in my life. 😁
Of course, I am grateful for my insane parents, brother and extended family..
Even though we have fights and disagreements, there’s also a lot of love there. Deep, deep,
Deep down, beneath layers of resentment, hurt and anger, there IS love!! My family has helped make me the woman I am today. And as much as we all may argue, fuss and fight, I know they are there for me.
I’m thankful for the Big D. As a corporation, they respect the meaning of this holiday and have chosen to remain closed allowing us precious time to spend with friends and family.
I’m grateful for Mrs G. For all of her faults and foibles, she has helped me to open my eyes and understand, truly understand, that life is too short to complain, and bitch and moan.
I’m grateful for this blog, and you my dear readers. It’s SOO fun to write this and it’s even more fun to read your comments on my posts!!! ❤️ thank you all for taking the time out of your busy schedules to visit and enjoy my blog!
I’m grateful for my friends. I have the best group of friends who would drop everything at a moments notice to help me with ANYTHING.
I’m grateful for the children in my life. All 4 of them have taught me the joy of wonder and of learning. I adore them.
I’m grateful for the one person who brings so much laughter, love, light and faith into my life. The person who believes in me no matter what (even when I don’t believe in myself). The person who has my back no matter what and makes me laugh so hard I spit coffee everywhere. (And sometimes have to dance around doing the pee pee dance). The person who makes me feel loved. Every day. Even when I’m not very lovable. I FEEL the love. Every day. The person who encourages me, understands me and inspires me. For all this and more, I am forever grateful. I’m blessed beyond words.
And as I spend a quiet day relaxing and reflecting I realize I’m the luckiest girl in the world. I have Love, laughter and lasagna. What more could a girl want??
