Things I'm Thankful For

For Thanksgiving, I thought I'd put into words all I'm grateful for this year. Ok, maybe not all, but as much as I can think of off the top of my head while the pumpkin pie is cooking and Picke's comforter is in the laundry.

1. That I have a nice, safe home in which to cook and do laundry.
2. That I have three beautiful, smart, mischievous and loving children.
3. That I have a husband who loves me and puts up with my mood swings.
4. That I haven't been the victim of a natural disaster (or any other kind of disaster).
5. That I live in America where I can bitch about things without fear of retribution for anyone other than judgmental moonbats or over the top wingnuts.
6. That I still have my parents.
7. That I am able to stay home with my children and work from home.
8. That I discovered Firefly and Serenity.
9. Dallas Cowboys every Thanksgiving.
10. For my college education provided by my parents (no student loans to repay, Thank God!)
11. For all of my good friends.
12. For a teacher who cares about my son and has made a difference in his life.
13. That even though my hair is going gray and has lost the luster it had in my youth, that I still have it (I saw a gal at Wal Mart Monday in a bandanna, obviously from chemo hair loss).
14. For my health.
15. Health of my children and family.

    Since my own blog is down and no one from support has replied to my e-mail, I will say that I am thankful for...

    1.) My son
    2.) My incredible friends who put up with my emotional roller coaster.
    3.) My mentor who has helped me through some tough times even though he would never admit it.
    4.) My Cowboys, Mavericks, Broncos, Stars and Rangers.
    5.) My son's teachers who may have to retire early after he's done with them.
    6.) My ex (who many of you know is AoM) and her husband who are always good to me and who both love my son and work to realize the potential he has.
    7.) My new car.
    8.) My cameras and lenses that I love so much!
    9.) My seemingly endless array of music.
    10.) My main man J.C. who died for my sins despite the fact that I am a fallen person.

    That's it off the top of my head!
