What I am thankful for

I must confess that I didn't get all of my Christmas shopping done and I promised myself I would do it before Thanksgiving. My shopping area-which I also consider my downtown, gets extremely congested with everyone and their mom coming to shop at "The Market Place", "The Town Center" and the mall. I have to say that in the early evening traffic gets really crazy making a quick stop to the grocery store an adventure in Bumper-to-Bumper Land. I can't even begin to count all of the cars that run red lights and the ones that block the intersection. That being said, every thing I do this time of year in town is done before 3:00pm (and hopefully before December 24).

What I am thankful for:
  • My 4 awesome kids- that make me laugh, cry, pray, dress up and be goofy and challenge me to be the best mother in their world.
  • My wonderful babysitter- who is one of the sweetest, patient, loving and joyful young ladies I know... She's one of the few that I trust with my babies. She's one of the few my kids wish they could live with-forever.
  • My 1st grade teacher Mrs. Morse... who taught me how to read.
  • My mother, who cultivated my love of reading by taking us to the library every week.
  • My 2 Modern gadgets I use the most- my cell phone & Ipod
  • The beach-off season
  • My New Life Church peeps who have prayed with me & for me and stood with me until those prayers were answered.
  • Butterflies
  • Best friends-who live far away but have always been close to my heart
  • My hammock
  • Icecream
  • My extended family
  • "tommorows" because they also mean you have a second chance.
