I know it's been awhile...falling off the blog wagon. For those still reading - thank you. Don't forget to tell me you are - keeps me motivated and yes, I just like to know someone is reading this. I just spent a while on girlygirl.pnn.com blogging about Thanksgiving and why I am thankful. Go read it too - too late and my wine glass is empty so I won't repeat all of it. Just know that I am thankful for all of you and this little world that let's me write about whatever is important to me each day. Or at least right now. It's funny but I never kept a diary even though I tried. I just liked the whole locked book idea. I always loved to read. Even those speed reading timed books in the second grade. Read at your own pace, answer the questions and go on to the next level....OMG. I was in heaven and I didn't even know why. Not how I taught my first and second grade students to read when I was a teacher. I wonder where and how they are all doing now??? Funny, I haven't tried to find any of them on facebook...just old friends my age. That might be something I try tomorrow. I am thankful for those ideas that keep me going each day. What am I going to do tomorrow? This amazing world we live in gives us so much to do each day. No wonder we are sometimes just worn out and too tired to enjoy it. Really.
I am blessed to be able to stay at home each day and just try my best to make my little family of four happy. Okay, six counting the four leggeds. For the most part, they are easy. Lots of bones. Food & water and just bones/treats. They are good.
Clean house and clean clothes and something to eat and the two leggeds are okay. One has flown away and as long as I keep in touch thru texting and bank account she is fine. And as long as I am availabe to ride shotgun with the other one for just a tiny while longer he will be happy. I am thankful that I get to make them the focus of my day - everyday. That has always been such a privilege to me. How lucky am I - that I can stay home and just make this the best place for them to be. Never once have I been uncomfortable saying, " I am a stay at home - Mom." And never was I uncomfortable saying,"I am a teacher." Working in the home and/or out we are all working FOR our family. How lucky are we? I am so thankful to be working here and I'm so thankful that my husband is working there. Times are tough and our country is trying so hard to make it right for everyone everywhere. I am thankful for here. And all we have.
Thanksgiving is such an amazing time of year. For our family it was always spent at my sister in law's house in South Carolina. It was wonderful and each year we all looked forward to it. We haved missed the last couple of years and are sad not to be able to go again this year. I am thankful for all those memories of Thanksgiving past and I am thankful for the memories we will make of Thanksgiving future. To friends and family everywhere I am thankful for you. You make each and everyday the best place I could ever be.
Take a minute and think about all you are thankful for...now go tell someone that loves you and needs to hear it. They will be thankful you did. And so will you. That is what November is all about. The most amazing time of the year.
