With Thanksgiving Day just around the corner and both sets of grandparents coming into town, I feel the need to do some yoga breathing and compose a list of things I’m thankful for:

 

I’M THANKFUL…

  1. For my kind and generous husband
  2. That my kind and generous husband does all of our laundry
  3. For our healthy, thriving children
  4. For our neighborhood public school and its industrious teachers
  5. For the hours when that school is in session and my twins are out of my hair
  6. That when I was distracted by my 2-year-old in the supermarket yesterday, the woman I accidentally hit with my shopping cart was really nice about it
  7. To anyone who reads my blog
  8. For lyrics like Florida Georgia Line’s “…this brand new Chevy with a lift kit/Would look a helluva lot better with you up in it…”
  9. That the election is over
  10. That our Halloween candy is finally gone
  11. That although my 2-year-old woke me up at 4:30 this morning, more often than not she sleeps through the night
  12. That our children enjoy books
  13. That since our older daughter has started to read, I can tell her to read to her younger sister instead of doing it myself
  14. That I was not involved in the near-accident I witnessed this morning
  15. For free, online dictionaries (like the one I just used to look up “online”)
  16. That although we are going broke, the decline is slow and so far I can still afford my therapy
  17. That my friends forgive my foibles
  18. That there are people still working toward peace in the Middle East
  19. That although our house is a mess and needs a lot of work, we have a roof over our heads
  20. That no one is usually there but me to witness what I feed my kids for dinner
  21. For the support of our families
  22. That although our dog’s breath stinks and he barks too much, he sometimes still cuddles with me
  23. For the “Real Housewives” franchise
  24. That I discovered that no one had changed my 2-year-old’s diaper this morning before I dropped her at preschool
  25. That although our basement walls desperately need re-parging, I can close the door and not go down there
  26. For people who make me laugh
  27. For people who are secure enough to laugh at themselves
  28. For the kind woman who once gave me a jump in bumper-to-bumper traffic, waiting to go through the Lincoln Tunnel
  29. For Chris Rock tweets like this one – “When ever I go to an amusement park I like to play a little game called pregnant or fat” – even if he can’t spell
