>In the spirit of the Thanksgiving holiday, I thought I’d take a few minutes to remind myself of things for which I’m thankful:
–my husband….. he makes my life absolutely whole with his love, his respect, and his wonderful sense of humor
–my parents…. who gave me a great start in life and the courage to try anything. My dad’s in heaven now watching over me, and my mom is still taking care of me here.
–all my stitching buddies…. I find it amazing that because of my hobby I’ve met so many people around the country who share my interest and I’ve made some of the best friends I’ve ever had.
–my business partner Bob…. we pick at each other like we were brother and sister, which is kinda neat considering I have no siblings
–the fact that I have a warm, comfortable home and plenty of food to eat
–my country and the troops that defend my freedom to say what I want, do what I want, and worship how I want.
I hope that all of you have a great Thanksgiving with plenty of turkey and plenty of friends and family around you. And keep in mind that sometimes our family is not those related to us by blood, but is those people we’ve chosen to be special in our lives.
Be grateful for everything you have, and remember to be generous with what you have to help those less fortunate if you can.
