There are so many things I am thankful for this year.  Some are big things, some are small.  No matter the size, they are all significant. 

In no particular order, here’s what’s topping my Thankful List this year.

I am thankful for my husband and my marriage.

my guys


I am thankful for my children.

My Girls


I am thankful for our loving and healthy dog, Shadow.



I am thankful for my health and my home.

I am thankful for all of my friends far and near.

I am thankful for my parents, brothers, sister and nieces.  Doug’s parents, brother and his wife are included in this one. (Too many people to name!)  

I am thankful for all the teachers and therapists (of past and present) who have worked so hard with Taylor. 

There really is so much more.  More than I could ever express in just one post.  

Now I offer you this question:

What are you thankful for?


On another note, I will mention that is is my 500th post.  I never in a million years thought I would make it to 500 posts.  I admit I’ve slacked lately and have been posting mainly photos, but that is something I am working on. 

I am glad I’ve been able to stick with this blog for so long.  I also am excited  to see where it goes in the next 100 posts.

Want to read my very first post?  


Wishing you all a safe and happy Thanksgiving,

  1. So refreshing to hear grateful from anyone in today’s world. The whole attitude of gratitude has disintegrated into a bumper slogan, but like you the attitude surfaces–not quite enough or as often as I would like–and keeps me grounded. We can’t control what happen in Iran, Iraq, the Middle East and little to help those in Haiti or assume control for the lack of action in New Orleans but we can manage to control ourselves and perception of the world. Your attitude has bolstered mine. You are paying it forward.
    On another note, this is my third blog entry and first reply. I look forward to hearing more from you and those around the world.
    Thanks, Chantelle. You started my day on a higher note.
