Happy Thanksgiving!

Today we will spend time with family and friends.  We will eat, and we will laugh and swap stories. We will create memories.

I am thankful for these hidden gems of time.  In our busy lives we seem to rush from one job to another, from one task to another.  I strive in my daily life to take advantage of the small  moments of time, the 20 minutes here and there when I am driving each of my daughters to work or school, this is where we have our chance to talk one on one, whether about funny things or about deeper topics.  The few moments on the street when I run into a friend as I am running errands on my coffee break (did you sign up for mystery?) or at the grocery store.

I am thankful to see my daughters growing up to be beautiful, caring young women.  They strive to make a difference in their own ways.  They are good friends to those around them and genuinely care of about the world at large.

I am thankful for my family who are far away.  While we don't see each other very often, they are always in my thoughts and I speak of them daily.

And I am thankful for Mr. Grumpypants.  He bought me a new laptop!!!!  LOL.

Seriously though, he tries every day. And he cares.  What more can you ask for?

Have a wonderful thanksgiving everyone.  Tonight we eat turkey!
