What are You Thankful For?

Thanksgiving is almost here and many of you are probably tired of hearing about it already. To some it's all about the food, other's about the family getting together and the feelings that only family and close friends can bring. To some it means nothing at all. 

I love all holidays that we celebrate here in the U.S. Each one has their own meaning and tradition to my family and I. Many have been commercialized and you know what, I go right along with that to. As long as I remember what the holiday is really for, I see no harm in it.

I am thankful for so many things this year. Little things like Spencer's laughter and John's smile. Big things like my new job (that I LOVE) and new friends who make my heart smile. Totally vain things like the Homemade Girl Scout cookies I just made that totally rock. I am also thankful for my followers and those of you who are so good to me through your comments and inspiration. Thank you all so very much.

What are you thankful for even if you don't celebrate Thanksgiving? Have you stopped and thought about it today?

I linked up with my3boybarians.

How wonderful you found a job you LOVE. And those homemade girl scout cookies sound delicious. I've always wanted to make homemade samoas. :) Today I'm so thankful--my parents are coming into town for a couple days. :)

Those are the ones I made! I will post the recipe soon and you can see if you want to try them. They are actually better than the GS cookies and I ate WAY too many. So glad you get to see your parents. Have a great time with them. :)

Yum - GS cookies. LOL
And I'm so happy for you about the job. I didn't ask when you start. You can tell me on twitter. LOL

What am I thankful for? Well you know one of my answers - the other is my family of course, and last but definitely not least - you. You won't understand that, and you'll think... whatever she's just saying that. No, I'm not. I am so grateful for you each and everyday. Yes, you mean that much. xoxox

I am so thankful for everything in my life right now:) I know there are so many people who are struggling just to put food on the table and I am lucky enough {most of the time}to just go to the store and buy whatever, makes me guilty.

No we don't have Thanksgiving in the Netherlands but every day you can be thankful for something. For little things. For all the birds in my garden, for the fog even which has given me so much inspiration lately. ;-) (3 poems already about fog in English on my blog) and which gives so much nice pictures.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Oh Nicole, I can't believe I didn't respond to this earlier! WTH! I am so thankful for you and your friendship too!

Don't feel guilty, Jessica. You are lucky but that makes me happy!

Kati, I just love how inspirational you and your blog are.

Mommy Bags, how awesome is that?! Yay!
