"Things that matter most must never be at the mercy of things that matter least." ~Goethe~

There is always so much going on around here day after day.  Some days are just a blur when it comes time to crawl into bed at night and rest for a bit.  I do from time to time actually stop and look around me to see all the blessings that have been given to me.  Then again there are days when I'm sure I don't pause to give any of it a thought.  Life, it happens. 

That is why I am so very glad that there is a day set aside every year that makes us really and truly stop to put deep thought into what really makes our lives wonderful.  We make the kids sit and list all the things they are and should be thankful for in their lives.  It's pretty awesome to see some of the things they put on their list.  Hugs, a wonderful Mommy and Daddy, nice home, etc.  Makes your heart melt to read over their list.

I myself am truly thankful for my most wonderful family because I wouldn't be who I am without them.  Life would be pretty boring without them adding all their 'stuff' to every day.  I am thankful that we have food on the table, a comfy home to live in.  I even have wonderful friends that add happiness to each and every one of my days.  That includes my dearest bloggy friends.  What else do I need or even need to ask for?


For the next 5 days it's going to be all about this little family and our small little slice of the world.  Some one was able to get time off from work for the first time in many years during this holiday week and we are going to make the most of it. Eating, laughing, reflecting, decorating and just enjoying each others company.  That's all that will be happening here.  Perfect if you ask me.  I couldn't think of anything else better to do other than snuggling on the couch, enjoying what we each like to do and just being together.

I wish everyone who visits this little blog a very Happy and Wonderful Thanksgiving.  Be thankful for all the blessings that have been given to you.  Don't lose sight of them.
