I am thankful.

Count Your Blessings Pictures, Images and Photos

Count your blessings instead of your crosses; Count your gains instead of your losses.
Count your joys instead of your woes; Count your friends instead of your foes.
Count your smiles instead of your tears; Count your courage instead of your fears.
Count your full years instead of your lean; Count your kind deeds instead of your mean.
Count your health instead of your wealth; Count on God instead of yourself.

It's that time of year. It is so hard for me to believe that Thanksgiving has rolled around once again. It is one of my favorite holidays because I love to EAT!!! I love to COOK!!! This is my kind of celebration! Whoo hoo!!!!! Bring on that turkey!

I also like to take time and reflect on things that I am thankful for as do most of us. I am especially thankful for my family, they have really been there for me this year and I have enjoyed them so much. I am also thankful for my friendships, new and old...I've truly been blessed in that department. I have a beautiful circle of friends and I wouldn't trade them for anything. I am thankful for my health. I am thankful for my home (which has recieved many face lifts this year). I am thankful for my job, I love it, and in this economy a person should be thankful to have one. I am so thankful to God for blessing me the way he has and the way he continues to everyday, I am thankful for the lessons he teaches me no matter how painful they may be. I am thankful that God blessed me with a healthy, beautiful baby boy almost 16 years ago, Ryan, who is no longer a baby but everyday turning into a fine, talented young man. Most of all I am thankful for my wonderful, loving, supporting husband who is my best friend in the world and whom I couldn't survive without.
