i am thankful...

I might complain sometimes, but I have so much to be thankful for. Today was a great day. We got up to my parents a little after noon... and just relaxed, helped cooked, etc until some family friends showed up at 4ish. We at so much good food (turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, cornbread muffins, chestnut stuffing, corn, cranberry sauce, brussel sprout cassarole, brownies, and pie)... and talked, drank wine, laughed, listened to music, etc. It was wonderful. Obviously our plans changed a little at the last minute (if you remember, we were originally going to my Uncles in DC), but things turned out wonderfully.

This Thanksgiving, I give thanks to God for all that he has provided:
1. My engagement to Travis... actually Travis (period). He is so much to me, and I am thankful everyday that we found each other, and that we will get to spend our lives together.
2. My incredible family, and the strength we pull from each other. My parents... Brother... Grandmum and Pop... wonderful Uncles (and Aunts!)... etc.
3. Better friends then I feel I could have ever hoped for... friends that are always there when I need them... including my best friend for 19 years now - Heather.
4. A house to call my own.
5. That we finally found a reception site!!!

I hope that you have your own list of things to be thankful for, and I hope at this time of year you take the time to think of them... and really be happy for them. There are a lot of people out there that don't have the things to be thankful for that we do... but you can bet that they are counting what blessings they do have.

Happy Thanksgiving all.
