Thanksgiving Eve.....

A day off from school and therefore a day free from routines and schedules,
making turkey cookies with the kids and we all survived,
a husband who agreed to stop his busy black Friday preparations and pick out some new lights for our Christmas tree,
neighbor kids who my own kids love playing with and spent an hour today at the park with,
a car with 125,000 miles on it that is still running,
a new pair of very comfy pajamas,
crab dip, berry-glazed chocolate cake, and cream puff dessert for tomorrow,
a fall that has been filled with beautiful light and lots of color,
Sixty degree weather in November,
an extended family whom I love,
the anticipation of spending Thanksgiving with some of them,
my in-laws who are so good to me,
my parents and sister who put up with me,
the man who I get to share my life with,
the kids who I get to hug and kiss and love on,
and most of all the love and grace of my Heavenly Father.

For all these things I give thanks (and this is just today's list!).
