Happy Thanksgiving!

Just wanted to get on and quickly tell you all HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Though it does seem a little silly since it's no longer Thanksgiving for some of you already, and the rest of you probably won't read this today. Oh well. But I am thankful for many things this year. Here a (very) short list:

Loving Husband
Energetic Children
Chubby Babies
Reynolds Turkey Bags
Plenty to eat
A warm, soft bed
Family all over the world (I'm not thankful that they are spread all over - they just happen to be:)
Friends that don't just leave a mark, but continually shape me for the better
Christmas trips made possible by generous parents
My creativity
That I can actually see the light at the end of my schooling tunnel (June 2010, baby!)

Really, I could go on forever, but I have kiddos being rowdy when they are supposed to be "trying" to sleep. Needless to say, I'm very grateful for the many blessings that I have in my life. And I'm sure there are things that I am blessed with that I'm not even aware of. I hope that you, too, are feeling grateful for the many good things in your life, whatever they may be.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.

Hi Lisa,

It's been a long time. I wrote you a letter via e-mail but I don't know how to send it. I also need an address so I can send a Christmas card. Your blogs are fun to read.

Keep in touch. Love, Colette
