I Am Thankful...I Really Am!

I am thankful for my husband, because without him, I'm not sure I would have the strength to get out of bed some mornings. I've been in love with my best friend for eleven and a half years now. I am thankful that he gets me (and my shopping) and even puts up with my crazy hormone induced rages! I have found my love of a lifetime and I am thankful every day for it!

I am thankful for my parents, whose love and support have been invaluable! I am thankful for the way they raised me, which helped to make me the person I am today. My mom has become my best friend and my father isn't afraid to ever tell me how proud he is of me and that he loves me. My parents are my biggest cheerleaders but yet know when to step back and let me make my own mistakes and learn my own lessons, but always have an ear and shoulder to lend when those life lessons don't turn out in my favor.

I am thankful for my sister and my brother who I can always count on for a great laugh. You know those kinds of laughs that take your breath away. That's what having siblings is about! And I am so grateful that my sister gave me my beautiful nephew, who has taught me exactly what it means to love a child so much that your heart feels like its going to burst.

I am thankful for my grandparents and the relationship that I have with them. Although it hurts my heart that I don't get to see them as often anymore, I get such a feeling of happiness thinking of them.

I am thankful for my in laws, who have become another set of parents for me. They have made my husband the wonderful man he is today (and even made him that cute). They provide support and love and have accepted me in as their daughter. Hubby's mom and dad are such caring and wonderful people, and so are the people they married! I feel so blessed to have them in my life! I am also blessed and thankful for hubby's adorable grandma, who I feel the same connection with that I do my own grandparents.

I am so thankful for my friends....who have gotten me through this year. I am thankful to have reconnected with some old ones and for the relationships that have continued to strengthen over the years. My friends rock!

I am thankful for twitter (silly ...I know) but the ladies that I have met on there and the support that is provided as hubby and I try to have our baby is never-ending I have never felt that someone has understood the pain and emptiness that I feel, but I now know that I have all the support that I need at my fingers and it's awesome!

But most importantly (this is ME we are talking about), I am thankful for black Friday shopping! One day a year is dedicated to my favorite sport. I mean..... shopping is my cardio!

Today is all about being thankful, spending time with family, and eating til your insides feel like they are going to burst out! But tomorrow....tomorrow is all about the CHA-CHING!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
