Ten Things I Am Thankful For

Thanksgiving is only a couple days away so I thought it would be great to share what we are thankful for. Here are my ten:

1) I am thankful for my family and that they are healthy.

2) I am thankful that my favorite holiday, Christmas, is almost here.

3) I am thankful for a group of wonderful, supportive mommy friends.

4) I am thankful for Starbucks{and chocolate, too!}

5) I am thankful that I have a warm house to live in.

6) I am thankful for the opportunity to work from home so I can be with my kids everyday

but still contribute to our family financially.

7) I am thankful that my boys are getting the services they need for their special needs.

8) I am thankful for modern inventions like my DVR, smartphone, and laptop.

9) I am thankful for blogging and the opportunities it’s brought my family and I

and for all the wonderful blogging friends I’ve made.

{Special thanks to my Collective Bias community and my fellow Chicago Social Media Moms!}

10) I am thankful for Christ being born

and that I can share the real reason for the season with my children.


What are YOU thankful for?
