I hope you all had a good time yesterday reminiscing with family, or spending time with them watching the game. Whatever you did I hope you enjoyed it and took a day off to think about the good things in your lives.
Yesterday, I got to sleep in. Til 9:00 a.m., and that’s late for me. Then I got some laundry in the wash and we went shopping for the ingredients to a casserole that everyone likes for us to make. We finished in the nick of time and were only ten minutes late arriving at the hubby’s parent’s house.
As we sat around the table gobbling up this year’s feast, I thought about the years I’ve spent with my wonderful man, and how I’ve gotten to know his family, and he mine. When you’re young you don’t think about this part of life a lot, you don’t look forward to the time where you’re growing your family ties, or at least I didn’t. I thought I would always be a loner, someone who spent a lot of time alone, and even thought I wanted that. Now that I’m getting older, I don’t want that and I realize that I like to have people in my life that care about me and that I care about as well.
Now I’m going to tell you the things I’m thankful for and I hope you’ll indulge me in the comments and tell me what you’re thankful for this year. I’m thankful for finding a man when I did that loves me for me and loves my son as his own. For that I am truly lucky and thankful. I’m thankful for my son who makes my life complete in every way. I am thankful for the time I spent getting to know him, and glad that I know him as well as I do, and can keep him in line pretty well because I know him well.
I am grateful for my sisters, and in laws. I am thankful that that the stroke my Dad had didn’t take his life, I feel lucky every day that he’s still here and realize now how important it is to tell people that you love them, so that there’s no question.
I am grateful that I have the knowledge to blog for you every day, that I have inspiration to write and even when I don’t you read it anyways. 😉
I am grateful that you read MouthyGirl, that you find what I have to say interesting is incredible to me and for that I thank you. Though it’s late, I got you something…
I know I didn’t have to, but I wanted to…you can find it here.
Have a happy weekend everyone and see you Monday!
