Small Thankfuls

With Thanksgiving fast approaching, and my life in chaos right now, I'm not sure if I will be able to post again before the big day, so I'm posting this now and you have a week to think about it ;-) Long ago in a blog far, far away I posted small thankfuls. We all know that at Thanksgiving, we are thankful for all the good things in life. But what about the little day to day things that you rarely think about. For instance, toothpaste. We couldn't get through a day without toothpaste, or maybe it's the smell of rain hitting dirt (my personal favorite) that really makes your day and brings back good memories for you. So just think of three small things that you are thankful for! And if you'd like to share yours with me, I would be ever so thankful.....

Here are my Three Small Thankful's....some of them are not so small I guess, but they are out of the ordinary. Here goes:

1. Mousse and a blow dryer. No, those are not two items. In my world they are one. I can't use one without the other. I have the world's finest, thinnest, limpest hair. I would never leave my house if it weren't for mousse and a blow dryer.

2. The Industrial Revolution. Ok, I know this one is a stretch, but hear me out. I am a person of convenience, and while I love the Revolutionary War period, and sometimes wish I were part of that exciting time.... I know, deep in my heart, I'd never make it without my car, air conditioning, electric appliances, frozen food, and on and on....all made possible by the wonder that was The Industrial Revolution.

3. Any food I don't have to cook. I hate to cook (I guess I should say I hate to cook everyday....I really like making the big holiday that crazy?). So, any food that is not cooked by me, is heaven.

So, there you have my three small thankfuls. I would like to take this opportunity to mention some of the "big" things I am thankful for. There are so many but here are the ones that really stand out.
1. My Faith
2. A wonderful husband to share my life with
3. Three great kids I would die for
4. Being raised by parents who really cared what kind of person I would turn out to be
5. A Large, extended and loving family
6. A life that has not been filled by monetary riches or possessions but has overflowed with wealth of a different kind. A life that is filled to the brim with all the things that are most important in life: Faith, Family and Friends.

Those are the things I am most thankful for.... and all of you, of course... I am thankful for all my new blogging friends.

Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving and many blessings to you all......

My love
