Happy Thanksgiving

There are so many things to be thankful for...

The amazing man I married who loves me even on days I'm not so lovable, and is super involved with our kiddos

My 4 year old who is crazy smart and full of personality. Lately, I am most amazed (and thankful) that she has taken her baby sister under her wing and comes running anytime she gets hurt so she can comfort her.

My 16 month old that is so super cuddly and also so independent. We could all learn a little something from the persistence of toddlers.

My extended family--we may not always agree or get along, but when the going gets rough, our little tribe sticks together like super glue.

The huge amount of physical security and wealth I have. Some days it's hard to remember that when you see so many people with so much more, but I have a (relatively large) roof over my head, clothes on my back, and a small piece of land that provides me with food. That's really so much more than so many have.

That even with the stresses and unknowns in any given day, I live in stable, safe location. Thankfully, no one I know was in Mumbai last night. And a much less severe, but still a little scary situation is going on in Thailand. My thoughts go to all of those in both places.
