Thankful

I have been a little down lately. I can't put my finger on the reason, but I just feel sad and blah at times. Maybe it's the fact that I still miss my Spanky and still feel the guilt of him not being here, because of me. It is also the start of the holiday season, and I am sad because they won't include Spanky for the first time in 14 years. Also, the fact that I am way over weight, and KEEP EATING!!! I have SO MANY things to be thankful for in life. So today, being Thanksgiving, I will list them.
I am thankful for God's love, and His word, that reassures me of His presence in EVERYTHING in my life!
I am so thankful for my family, I have been blessed beyond measure in this department my whole life.
I am thankful for the health of my children.
I am thankful for my home.
I am thankful for Mike's job and mine.
I am thankful for friends. Those who are near and those whom I haven't seen in years, they have filled my life with joy.

I am thankful for the hope of someday soon, we will adopt a new dog that needs a loving home.

Of course, there are so many more things I am thankful for today, but these are just a few. I hope you all have a blessed day with your friends and family.

Sorry that you are feeling in the dumps. I know it is hard to have the holidays with out a family member here but he is in doggy heaven watching down on you, Mike and the kids. Instead of feeling guilty feel proud of what a great life you gave him and all the love that he received.

There are two on my site - try again later and see if you can see both of them. If you want to make one of your own just click the ElfYourself button at the bottom of the link and get started! It's a complete waste of time but oh so fun!
