Thankful Thursday: Thanksgiving Day

I have a bit of insomnia AND my buddy has no concept of time. When Dukie has to go out, he has to go out!!! So, this morning, I crawled out of bed and danced outside in my PJs begging Dukie to hurry up so we could get back into the warmth.

We got inside and then it occurred to me; it is Thanksgiving morning!!! YIPPEE!!! Turkey and Brussel Sprouts and Stuffing, OH MY!!!!!!! I get way more excited on Thanksgiving than I do on any other holiday.
You see, this is my favorite holiday, and here is why...

It isn't about gifts and galore, but instead about sharing a ridiculously large and DELIGHTFULLY DELICIOUS meal with your family and friends.

So, what am I thankful for you may ask? I think I have been pretty clear on my blog over the past several months, but here is a quick run down:

My Family - Always appropriately entertaining and overly involved at all the right times.

My Friends - This year hasn't been easy but man do I have some solid people in my life. Special shout out to those who have put up with both my endless tears and my bad jokes.

My Dog - Yeah, OK so he woke me up at like 4:00 on Thanksgiving morning to go out, but he also puts joy into every day.

My House - I love the endless project that is my house. It makes me comfortable and warm.

Couches - The only place I have found solid sleep over the last month and a half. Friend's couches, mom's couch, my couch... LOVE THEM!!!!!

My Job - If you can believe it, there is a person on this planet who loves their job... This girl. Sure, I complain about stuff, rightfully so, but to make a difference in another person's life on a daily basis (even if indirect) is a gift.

My Athleticism - So I may have struggled this year, but it has been through those struggles that I have learned a ton about myself, oh and I built some relationships with some pretty awesome people too.

This list could continue, and maybe it will tomorrow, but the fact of the matter is that my life is blessed. It doesn't matter how tough things get, approaching each day with a smile and gratitude opens my eyes to the beauty of all things life has to offer.
