My Gratitude List

Rosie is thankful for mom, me, cats, food, dad, toys, dog, and … sister?
(No, that’s not an announcement. She says she meant the turkey’s sister)

This Thanksgiving is the first one that I’ve ever spent away from extended family. Taylor, Rosie and I are chilling in a chilly house in Georgia without any cousins, aunts, uncles, friends, siblings, or grandparents. Today we celebrated by watching ‘The Four Christmases’ and having our Thanksgiving feast at Golden Corral. It’s been pretty understated and relaxed, but I can’t help thinking about all my family I’m away from. And in “Me Too!” blogger style, here’s my gratitude list:

My amazingly loving husband

My creative, sweet and beautiful daughter

Supportive and loving extended family

Many friends around the world, including my bloggin’ friends

Employment, in a time of financial crisis

Shelter, in a time of foreclosure

Faith in the Gospel that keeps me on the straight and narrow

Culture and fun to keep me interesting and sane

Technology to keep me connected

Delicious food and drink to keep my clothes tight

Reliable transportation, by way of car and airplane

Blogging to let me get things off my chest and make new friends
