A Thankful Thanksgiving




With thanksgiving just a couple of days away, I thought it would be appropriate to share some of the things I am thankful for this year (and let me add that these are in no particular order):


1. Faith and Family —

Happy I have them, couldn’t survive without them. They are my life.


2. Teenagers…two of them —

The teen crowd makes life interesting. I have one teeny-bopette who’s finding her own style, and one teen-cool-dude that only cares about when he can get his driver’s license. But it’s not just them, it’s their friends too. And I am totally enjoying watching and listening to them be so excited about life, the highs and the lows…

oh, the drama of it all. drama-faint


3. Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Lattes —

What more needs to be said?! pumpkin-spice-latte


4. Gas prices —

If you had told me that someday I would be thrilled about $1.89 a gallon…I’d have thought you crazy. But, WooHoo! Yippee!! dog


5. Writing —

Oh, the insatiable drive to create, my passion, my therapy! And the wonderful friends I’ve made in the process, people with whom to commiserate and celebrate! hmmm


6. Orange Lutheran —

The caring teachers, the awesome education, the amazing coaches, and football! The SSS gang, “It’s the power of the ring, baby!” And O Lu plays Notre Dame of Sherman Oaks in the Game of the Week, this Friday at Santa Ana Bowl for the CIF Pac-5 Division quarterfinals. Halle-LU-jah! football


7. Holidays —

Love them! Everything about them…family, friends, decorating, cooking, celebrating.

8. Blogging —

I’m so happy I got up the courage to blog. I LOVE blogging. And I adore and appreciate my readers…I’m thankful for you. blogging


9. Children’s Hospital —

It’s been a tough couple of years with my daughter’s health, and I want to thank the doctors, nurses, child life specialists, and other staff for their wonderful, caring, and loving support. dr-love


10. My Country, the good ol’ U.S.A. —

The freedoms we have and usually take for granted, those who fight to protect our freedom, and this grand and glorious country.



What are you thankful for? Leave me a COMMENT!
