I know all of us are feeling the hit of this economy. Gas is high, food is rising. Our government sucks. Their idea of balancing a budget is is ludicrous.
However this is the time of year we celebrate Thanksgiving. A time to give thanks for the bounty in our lives. I truly believe that if we look past this depressing drudge we all have bounty to be thankful for. Traditionally it was the harvest we celebrated and the coming together of two peoples. It has since evolved into a time to remember all we are thankful for. I am so incredibly thankful for our readers and the amazing men and women I call friends because of this blog. You guys are so great at giving feed back and answering questions. You all entertain me and inform me with your amazing blogs. I have learned so much from you. I have included a lot of that knowledge in the new book that I think (or at least hope) you will enjoy.
I am also so thankful this season for my husband and children and the life we share. We have a clean and well kept roof over our head and good food in our belly. We are all healthy. My FMS sucks sure but in the big picture there are far worse things to have. We are clothed. We have the ability to help those we love. We are blessed that I can be home with our babies. My husband has a steady job. Life is pretty good right now and I try to be thankful for that every day.
Please remember that even though it may feel grim and bleak there is still much to be thankful for and overjoyed over. If you need a visual just pull out your favorite gun! ;)
