I am feeling especially thankful this holiday season. I am most thankful for my family. my mom. my wonderful, successful, well-educated, loving, beautiful children who also my friends. my siblings and their spouses/mates. my mother-in-law and family. nieces and nephews. my jobs (finally). the sweet babies in my life. my puppy and kitties. my warm bed. my soon-to-be marriage of 25 years. my android phone. friends that are 'near and far'. online shopping. my home. my van. my travels. my 'little free library'. my faith. my health. and so much more.
