I absolutely love this time of year when we (here in America, anyway) celebrate Thanksgiving. I like that it kind of forces me to sit back and think about the things I am most thankful for. The list is long and it would take hours for me to list everything here. Instead I've decided to pick the one thing I'm most thankful for to tell you about.
It might be cliché, but the thing I'm honestly most grateful for is my family. That's it's cliché doesn't make it any less true or important. I was raised by a mom who loved me, and who let me know I was loved. I was raised by a dad who always provided for his family, and made sure our every need was met as much as possible. I had siblings that I may not have gotten along with growing up all the time, but who I now love to death! Those same siblings have given me extended family that I love as well, including nieces and a nephew that I couldn't love more if they were my own. I'm married to a man who loves me, and who is not only a great provider, but loves our children.
Then there are my children. I wouldn't trade a single mess, temper tantrum, ruined couch, or heartbreak with them. Everything has led up to them becoming these amazing people that I can't believe I'm lucky enough to have in my life. In fact, my two sons have upped the ante by bringing me a couple of sweethearts for daughters-in-law.
I feel blessed beyond compare for having these people in my life. And with all of the other things that are so great in my life as well, this year I have more reason than ever to be thankful.
Because one of the things that I am so very grateful for is all of you, my dear reader, I want to give you an Amazon gift card that you can use to buy that book you've been thinking about but just haven't wanted to splurge on - or any other thing that your heart desires. And all you have to do is tell me, in the comments section, what one thing (or one of the things) that you're most thankful for yourself this year. Good luck, and may your heart be overflowing as you spend time with loved ones at this festive time of year, no matter where you are.
Open to anyone who can shop at Amazon.com.
