As we spent the day today prepping for our Thanksgiving meal, to night I'm reflecting on all the things I'm thankful for.

I am thankful for Rock and the great relationship we have. There are ups and downs but we work through them together. I'm also thankful we celebrated 10 years of wedded bliss last month.

I am thankful for my family. It is a great family and just right. I love each and everyone of them so much.  I got so blessed to have them in my life.

Thankful for my children, they are my blessings my  life. Thankful for my dad and all the help he provides us.

Thankful for my mom and all the love and support she provides. Seriously my parents are a huge blessing to us and are greatly appreciated.  My kids are so blessed to have grandparents around (I never had any growing up) and who play such an active role in their life.

I am thankful that this woman was in my life, she provided me with much love and guidance (and not to mention she use to spoil me rotten). She will be greatly missed this holiday, there has been some breakdowns today missing her.

I am thankful for my art and my crafts,  and I love to create and am so glad I can steal opportunities to do it.

Crafting and creating with my kids. It's such a blessing to pass on my passion to them.

I am thankful for the yummy food we will eat tomorrow and that we eat everyday. I am thankful that both Rock and I are great cooks and come up with yummy meals to eat.

I am thankful for my clothes and my sense of style (it works for me). I am thankful that I have lots of clothes, even if a lot of it is old and even if I seem to wear the same favorite items over and over again.

I am thankful for my friends and my kids' friends.  We have all been blessed with some amazing people in our lives.

I am thankful for this awesome house and the awesome yard. It gives  all of us the space we need and then some. The kids are loving it.  And I:m thankful I have a little corner for my art and craft supplies.

I am thankful for for the beauty and inspiration all around us.  Just outside your window you can find it.

I'm sure I missed tons of things I should be thankful for but I'm getting tired.  I'm looking forward to tomorrow and spending time with family and friends and feasting. And feast we will, Rock is making his famous turkey and gravy, I'm making MIL's famous ham, we're also having mashed potatoes, green beans mozzarella, glazed carrots, sweet potatoes, salad, cheapie buns and my mom's famous cheesecake pumpkin pie.  Oh tomorrow can't get here fast enough.

For my Canadian readers wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving this weekend, I hope you can celebrate with your family and friends all you have to be thankful for.

For my American readers I hope you all have a wonderful weekend as well.
