10 Things I’m Thankful For Today

28 Nov

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays.  Besides all of the amazing food that I can stuff my belly with, I am surrounded by the people that I love most.  Each year our family joins together and spends the day and mealtime laughing, reminiscing and just loving each other’s company.

Happy Thanksgiving from Helicopter Mom and Just Plane Dad

We tell the same old stories that I’ve heard every year since growing up and listen to the new stories told by the children, from their viewpoint.  With the exception of my (just turned young adult) niece, the other kids are now young adults and are making memories of their own.

Since my daughter is now a young adult, this year has been particularly emotional and the holidays will have special meaning. We begin the juggle between houses. She spends time with her family and that of her boyfriend. While this breaks my heart, it also serves as a reminder of all of my blessings. Please remember to enjoy your family on this special holiday; yes even crazy Aunt Nutty!


A caring husband that never lets a day go by without telling me he loves me

Readers that visit my blog because they want to

The relationship between my only daughter and her Dad

My extended family that lives close by

The person that dropped off Tukker at the humane society

My blogger tribe

Just Plane Dad’s great job that provides for our family

Those soldiers that protect my family’s freedom every day

The blessings that God have given throughout my days!


What are you thankful for?  How have you been blessed this year?

    I am blessed to have a family of six who have our needs met by God. We also became debt free this year, following the sale of our house.

    I am thankful for the health of my family, and for the laughter and joy my children have brought to my life. I am thankful for my hardworking husband and the bountiful healthy food I can serve on our table. I am thankful that we will be able to put gifts under the tree for our children, and needy children in our community this year!

      Thank you so much for this thoughtful comment. I love the fact that you mentioned providing gifts for other needy children. I just saw the donation tree at our local Panera. I feel so blessed that I can also help out. Merry Christmas!
