Thanksgiving a time to be thankful!

Well this Thanksgiving we have lots to be thankful for! I know that once this move is over I will be able to be a little more thankful, right now I am completely overwhelmed and really need tomorrow to not be Thanksgiving Day, so we can get packing done, but tomorrow I am going to let it all go! I am super thankful that I will be spending time with both my hubs, his family, and my family. I am thankful that we all live close enough together that we can spend the holidays together and there are no problems or fights about who is going where and when.

Tomorrow we will be going to eat Thanksgiving dinner at my grandparents' "home," my grandmother has Alzheimer's and lives at a facility that is very nice and takes good care of her. My grandfather just recently moved into the assisted living facility that adjoins (is that a word?). So, the hubs and I will swing in to Andaddy's new place and pick him up/ walk next door to Mimi's for their big Thanksgiving Dinner. I am super thankful to have these two people in my life! My mom's parents passed away about 5 and 10 years ago. So, at the holiday's I am truly blessed that I still have grandparents to spend them with. Luckily that is early in the day. Then we will head to pick up my mother in law and head about 45 minutes north to Robbie's sisters house to celebrate with his family. The best part we will all be able to be home in our own beds tomorrow night.

This year has been full of things to be thankful for. I have tried to do the daily thankful's on fb. I have skipped a few days as the moving is dominating my life. But, most of all, I am thankful that it looks like 2013 will be a great year, full of new beginnings. I am not by any means saying that we haven't had a great year this year, but for the past few years I have often thought, man if we could catch a break it would nice. We are going into the new year with so much hope for our future. I will be losing weight and getting healthy ( hopefully encouraging the hubs to do the same). We will be finding and buying our 1st home together in the town I grew up, where our parents live, and I work. And then, this time next year we will be starting again to try to grow a family. I really have so much to be thankful for its almost impossible to put it into words.

Thank you God for all our many blessings!
