Thanksgiving

It's that time of year again when you sit down with family to a day of feasting, football, and most of all thanks. It's not often that we take time out of our lives to really consider what we are thankful for, as most of the time life and the people in our lives get taken for granted.

So I want to say that I am thankful for my family - immediate and extended - that is always there for me and loves me for who I am. I do love you guys and I may sometimes have a funny way of showing it, but I think we all do... But I wanted to say thank you for being the best family I could have ever asked for. I also want to say thank you to friends both near and far that are like my family. This past year and a half probably would have been much more insane if I didn't have my friends to help me through and listen to me gab and talk and sob and whatever else. I was there for them and they were there for me and true friends become your family. There are some I wish were here that won't be but remember I am always thinking of you and sending prayers your way. And I am making new friends which always is exciting.

I'm thankful that every morning I wake up to the most wonderful daughter. I am truly blessed. She is my world and I love being a mother. I'm thankful my eyes work and my body doesn't hurt that bad and that I have a roof over my head and food to eat.

Thank you to everyone who just read this. :D I really hope that everyone has a great thanksgiving. I know that I am really looking forward to spending this day with 20 other family members at the biggest Thanksgiving that I think we have ever had together. It will be a day of lots of picture taking and laughs and I can't wait.

I thought that I would share with you one of my favorite songs by one of my favorite musicians. George Winston's - Thanksgiving. I wish I could play like him and though I know I never will I have high hopes for Grant (hehe). Because I know that he could probably play them right now... Maybe I'll bring the sheet music with me and beg for him to play.

Enjoy! and HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

Never had a biopsy, I wish your friend luck. I guess my aunt had her thyroid taken out... Which I didn't know was possible! Why does god give us all these things we do not need?

Wow, I love that song, he is definatly one of my favs, it looks pretty simple actually. Grant likes fast songs and probably wouldn't have the patience for this song... but I could play it... (hint, hint)
