Many of my friends are posting daily thankful posts on Facebook to celebrate November and the American holiday of Thanksgiving, so I thought I would provide a list to share what I am thankful for this year.

1) I am thankful for my two daughters who challenge me to be a better Mom, friend, and teacher – every day.

2) I am thankful that my Mom and Dad have opened up their home to let my family move in until we are able to get established again.

3) I am thankful my parents are still around

4) I am thankful that I have a husband who puts up with my lack of self-confidence, crazy mood swings, hair-brained ideas, bigger-than-life dreams and goals, and keeps me grounded, even when I don’t want to be.

5) I am grateful for friends who I know will always be there, no matter how far away or how infrequently we see and speak to each other.

6) I am grateful for social media that allows far-away friends to feel closer than they are.

7) I am grateful that I am able to wake up every morning and take my kids to school, complete mundane errands, and, if I choose, do household chores like laundry and making dinner, without assistance.

8) I am grateful for four dogs who love me unconditionally.

9) I am grateful for one cat who loves me when she feels like it.

10) I am grateful that I have experienced love and loss, and have a better appreciation for the ‘good times’.

What are you grateful for?
