Giving Thanks Every Day


I'm thankful for so many things- most importantly I try not to take those things for granted. In fact, I give thanks for them every night before I go to sleep.

I am thankful for my family and my extended family of friends, and for how generous they have been with their time over the last few years. We have a renewed bond which has only grown stronger with time. I'm so thankful for my nieces and nephews and how they make me laugh and remember what it was like to be a kid!!

I am thankful for my home, I am thankful for a bunch of things I have, some make life easier and more comfortable and some are just for fun- and thankful that I realize that those things are only things.

I am thankful for my animals, who, down to the little bird Hedwig, show me unconditional love every day, and I am thankful for my partner who loves me the same way. I am thankful that my family loves her, and that our families have so much in common, both personally and professionally.

I am thankful that the gym is 10 steps away from my office door!

I am very thankful for artichokes, butter, the perfect steak, hash browns, stone crab claws, cabbage rolls and birthday cake.

I'm thankful that my little brother is in town for one day and I will see him at lunchtime!

I'm thankful that my sister, Muffin face, was the 10,000th visitor on my blog, and will receive an official ...and the eggs t-shirt with "10,000th Visitor" on the back. Congratulations and mazal tov, Muffin Face.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! Enjoy the holiday, and enjoy the food! Most importantly, appreciate what you have...and the eggs.
