I'm Thankful For...

I'm thankful for so much.  What's on your list?  

- My boys.  The one who surprises me with flowers every now and then and is willing to warm up my side of the bed before I get in.  The one who loves to give me lots of big running hugs and giggles like crazy.  And the one who still (almost) fits on my chest and smiles a silly seven-tooth grin.  
- Family.  I'm so lucky to have such amazing people in my life.  
- Friends.  Near and far.  This includes the ones I haven't even met.  
- Good food.  Cheese and olives and figs.  Leftover turkey sandwiches.  Oh, I could go on and on...
- Music.  All different kinds.  It feeds my soul.
- My fireplace.  It's little and gas, and I do long for the smell of a wood-burning fireplace, but this little fireplace makes our living room amazingly cozy.  I love it.  
- Hot showers.  
- Facebook. A little weird?  Perhaps.  But I am thankful that it allows me to connect with my friends and family just a little easier.  To see pictures of kids growing up throughout the year and not just on a holiday card.  
- Good books, and the people that write them.  
- The ocean.  I love that I get to see it every day.  The smell of the sea air makes me happy.
- Vacation plans.  Yes, it's true - Italy is close to becoming a reality.  Next August! There's nothing like having a fun trip to look forward to.
- Living in a place I love.  Boston may be cold, but that just means there's a decent chance of a white Christmas.  It's home.

Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. Hi - I saw this last week and thought I had commented - my memory is going! I love your list and so agree about the ocean. It means alot to me that I can see it if I need to...I am not quite close enough for that to be every day but it's only a few miles away should I get the urge. I hope you had a great day. Lou x
