The Obligatory Thanksgiving post.



 This time of year when we are often running from one store to the next trying to get the latest deal for our little ones, I tend to reflect upon what I am thankful for. Instead of wishing I had a better phone or a bigger computer I am grateful for what I do have every single day of my life. Because it could be a lot worse. It just could.
  This year I am grateful for the simple things in life. I am thankful for running water and a toilet. I am thankful for the health of my children. I am thankful for God in my life. I am thankful that I still say "Merry Christmas" and not Happy Holidays. (I mean, C'mon Christ IS the reason for the season, not Santa Claus.) Sigh.
  I am thankful for Netflix.com, hulu.com and of course my blog. And of course ALL of you. (Even when I took a short hiatus from blogging I still got comments. Of which I thank you.) I need to get out and comment on blogs...I'm sorry for being slow to getting around to EVERYONE...but when you are a mother AND a wife, AND a full time working person on the weekends...it doesn't leave much room for anything else.
  I am also thankful for eye candy. (Ahem, Taylor Lautner. AKA Jacob Black in the Breaking Dawn.) Yes I am probably old enough to be his mother...but oh well. Those abs are to die for! Mmm...yummy.
  I am thankful I have food in my cupboards and milk in my fridge. I am thankful for good friends near and far that know how to listen. I am thankful for a hard working spouse that is willing to brave awfully cold temperatures to bring home a paycheck. I am thankful for the ability to go back to school. Yes, folks I will be a registered nurse someday. I WILL! You can count on that! :)

   So as this Christmas season approaches let us focus on what really matters, our health, our faith in God and a warm roof overhead. Friends, family and laughter don't hurt either. :) Have a very merry Thanksgiving my fellow blogger peeps, and a splendid Christ centered Christmas...:)

MUAH! Love you my friends!
(Even if you don't believe in Christ, just drop everything and serve others. It always makes you feel better when you do. And that's the spirit of giving.)

I did my thankful post today as well.. So many blessings we overlook in the day to day.. I make a plan to not do that anymore.. if we are not grateful in the small how can he bless us with the big

I think that Thanksgiving is placed at the perfect time of year. We remember all the wonderful things we have been given. Then we get to celebrate the most important thing Heavenly Father ever gave to us...Jesus Christ, our Savior. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Alexes, and an incredible Christmas season!
