Thanksgiving is the official kick-off to the holidays and a day for family and friends. Every year as we sit at the Thanksgiving table, we go around to ask everyone sitting at that table what exactly they are thankful for. Although a hungry bunch does not want to hear an excessively long list, here is my list of things I am thankful for. I am thankful for good health for myself and for my family and friends. Although we all suffer from the occasional aches and pains, everyone is just fine. I am thankful for my family, my two beautiful daughters who keep me laughing and I am very honored to say are also my friends. My parents who still at eighty something years old are up for pretty much all of our shenanigans. I am thankful for the love of my life who makes me laugh, smile and has enriched my life in too many ways to even count. I am thankful for all my Honeysuckle friends who help me at the drop of a hat to assist the Honeysuckle Foundation. I am thankful for Lauren’s boyfriend and all my long-lost friends who I have ‘found’ on Facebook who share their lives with me and give me something to chuckle about on a regular basis. Life is about laughter and we sure have plenty. I am thankful for everyone who has touched my life for the good or not so good, as only through these experiences has my life become so rich and full. I am thankful for my life. Although it has been tough at times, the good would not be so rewarding or sweet without any bad.
May God bless everyone this Thanksgiving and holiday season!
