Being Thankful

(I'm thankful I won't ever be the Thanksgiving turkey!)

During the holiday season many people take the chance to slow down and count their many blessings. I have MANY things to be thankful for that I don't want to EVER take for granted such as all three of "my boys", my family, my health, my friends, the list could go on...and on...and on! BUT today I wanted to think about the simple things that I am thankful for...the simple pleasure of life.

30 simple things I am thankful for, for my 30 years of life!:

1. the clean feeling after brushing my teeth
2. the silence in the house when everyone is asleep
3. the laughter that feels my house when everyone is awake
4. a good book
5. not having to share a dessert
5. sharing a dessert with friends
6. the smile on the boys face when I pick them up from school
7. watching out my kitchen window at my adorable husband and the boys playing outside

10. playing games with the K-Man
11. playing games with friends
12. burning wood in the fireplace and hearing the crackling sound

14. slowly drinking a cup of coffee
15. the thrill of walking into a craft or decorating store
16. buying things for those I love
17. good smelling lotions
18. the happy,excited,joyful feelings inside me the holidays bring
19. when the K-Man says, "your a good cooker!"or "your the best cooker in the world!"
20. reading to my boys at night after their baths when they smell so clean

This is such a beautiful post. Right now I'm really grateful for meeting new friends. I've made it a goal of mine and really put for the effort. I feel like I'm being blessed by their influence and positivity.

I guess I feel like I have so much to learn and there's so many to learn from. ;)

That was very fun. I love You've Got Mail, too. I just LOVE turning on a favorite chick-flick in the background while I work on something. Fun fun list!!

That was very fun to read. I may have to swipe this idea, if that's okay with you.

Isn't raising three boys fun! I'm loving it.
