Thanksgiving Thursday

"No matter how difficult life may be at times,
there is always something to be thankful for."
~Mama Hen

It is Thanksgiving Thursday and I am so blessed to be able to share this day with you each week! As I wrote in past posts, I am trying very hard to capture my moments with my beautiful family and to hold on to them as much as I can. I think by giving thanks it is a great way of recognizing just how much we all have. I think too often we can get so wrapped up in daily tasks that we unintentionally can take things for granted. So my goal has been to become more "aware" of all my gifts no matter how small they may be and say thank you! Here are this weeks five things I am grateful for:
1.) Little Chick and my family.
2.) having been loved as a child by two amazing parents and grandparents!
3.) being able to buy plenty of books for Little Chick. She loves to read!
4.) for having health insurance.
5.) having energy to keep up with Little Chick and be able to do many fun things!

I received the Blogger Buddy Award and the Beautiful Blogger Award a few days ago from the super blogger Personalized Sketches and Sentiments. Thank you so much for these splendid awards! I really appreciate it!

Thank you everyone for all of your kind comments! You always put a smile on my face!

  5. You are definitely one mom who seems to have a grasp on the fact that these years when Little Chick are young - are fleeting, and you pay attention and cherish them! God bless you!
