Thanks for Thanksgiving

This is probably one of the easiest posts I've ever written. Today and every day, I'm grateful for:

  • God for giving life.
  • My parents for creating a warm family home and giving my sisters and me the gift of empathy.
  • My sisters - we have our ups and downs but we'll always be each other's life partners - and their families who keep life full and interesting.
  • Jeremy's family for welcoming me as their daughter and sister.
  • My closest group of girlfriends who give the best hugs, share the tastiest recipes and provide the strongest support.
  • Jeremy's and my network of friends and family spread throughout the country.
  • Maria, a stay-at-home mom gone pro, who has cared for Jack as if he were her own and has helped me to find some balance as a working mom.
  • A workplace that helps the greater good and coworkers who are friends.
  • Good smells from the kitchen, all things Food Network and the celebration of the home cook.
  • Quiet moments in the early hours in the morning with a steaming cup of coffee and a sunrise as my only companions.
  • Roscoe the cat who waits by the door for our return and keeps my feet warm at night.
  • My unborn daughter, whom I pray for good health. 
  • My son, my Jack, who is smart, handsome and funny. Whose first word is "Mommy" when he's tired, hungry or sad. Who says "But I'll miss you" when I told him this morning I was going to stay home while he, Papa and Daddy headed to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
  • My college sweetheart-turned-husband, who has enough patience for the both of us and whom I love more each day.
Happy Thanksgiving!
