In reviewing some of my past posts, I came to the horrible realization that I am a first class whiner. Seems like I complain about most everything. Soccer, other parents, high school in general, dress codes specifically, in-laws and outlaws, traveling…. blah, blah, blah.

I’m not a generally an unhappy person; I just like to rant… a lot. My husband is not a fighter, my daughter is away at college, and my son doesn’t fight fair… what’s a girl to do?

Thanksgiving is only a couple of days away and I have been thinking about this annoying habit of mine. I really am thankful for lots of people and things. In an effort to minimize some of the effects of my recent curmudgeonly grumbling, here is what I am most thankful for this holiday season.

My children – I do not have the words to express how blessed I am to have these two people in my life. I have loved (almost) every minute of being their mother. My husband- when my husband looks at me, and the 30 pounds I have socked on since we were married, the only thing he sees is “just more of me to love."
My parents and in-laws – thank you for helping me become the wife and mother that I am, and for my husband being the man and father he is.
My step-parents - Mom, Dad, you finally got it right. These people are wonderful and I am so glad you brought them into my life.
My taekwondo friends – you are my second family. Your support and generosity of spirit cannot be more appreciated. I love you all.
My job and the people I work with – these people are crazy, in an “I can’t stop laughing” sort of way. They make it fun to come into the office, and help make a job, not be a chore.
My pets – Maxx, Hershey and Pollo del Fuego, our three furry bundles of unconditional love and side-splitting hilarity. Our house would not be a home without you.
Books – a shout out to Mrs. Wiggington (my high school English teacher) for instilling in me a love of reading.
Modern medicine – and doctor’s that have made my various, and sundry ailments bearable.

Don’t let everyday life make you forget what is important. Take the time to tell the special people in your life how much they mean to you and how glad you are they are around. Be thankful for the little things and the big things won’t be so bad.

Happy Thanksgiving!
