Thanksgiving was a nice, peaceful and relaxing day for me and my family. It was just me, my mom and dad. The food was good, we talked, watched TV and went to see August Rush. It was a day that made me reflect on all of the things that I am thankful for. So, here goes...
I am thankful for

  • My faith in God
  • My family, especially my parents
  • My grandparents
  • Knowing that I will be a parent someday soon
  • My dog Hope
  • My friends, especially D and Shannon and Matt
  • My fantastic job
  • My house
  • My car
  • My ability to laugh at myself
  • My tenacity
  • laughter
  • Hope (you know seeing things in a positive light)
  • Loving and being loved
  • Being able to get up and motivate and move around
  • Good health
  • Books
  • Chocolate
  • Italian food
  • Bread
  • Pumpkin pie
  • Whoppers
  • Muppets
  • Disneyworld and Disneyland
  • Beautiful art and buildings
  • the Beach
  • Beautiful weather
  • Jeans that make you look good
  • Beautiful and comfy shoes
  • Purses
  • Funky jewelry

Okay...I could go on and on, but I do have a lot to be thankful for this year. It helps when I can write it down and read it. I don't feel so bummed.

I actually dragged my butt out of bed this morning around 4ish to go to JCPenney's for the annual Black Friday sales. I am hoping this will be my last one for a while, not that I don't enjoy the hunt. I got some good deals. I only spent about an hour there and went back home and crashed. My family came over for leftovers, including my sister and my niece and nephews. We played Amazing Race game, WII and then went and saw Enchanted. Another great day to be thankful for. I'm praying for all of us still...we're thankful that we will have that chance to have a child from China and I'm praying it will come sooner than we all expect.
