giving thanks, and laughing

Thankful. As I write, I'm sitting in cozy pajamas, watching the Macy's parade, drinking coffee, eating cinnamon rolls, sausage biscuits, and enjoying the company of my family. It's nice to be home.

I've had a fun week with friends, too much shopping, and GREAT food! So my post today is mixed with fun and reasons to be thankful.

I give thanks for friends with whom I can laugh and act...well... "normal".



I'm thankful for home, even homes made of gingerbread and frosting.



I'm thankful for reasons to work together with all people in the world.



I'm thankful for Kermit the Frog (random I know...but he's singing on TV right now).




I'm thankful for creativity and how everyone works together to add color and beauty to this world.




I'm thankful for things that last, like love and memories and laughter.




And I'm thankful for chances to try again, and the fact that God is good even when I feel like I'm falling apart.

And I thankful that my life is held together by something stronger than frosting.
I'm thankful that beauty in life is found in our being and living and dreaming, rather than our decorated selfs.
And I'm thankful for...so much more!

Apes, I think those are all great things to be thankful for and one of the things I am thankful for is you. Happy Thanksgiving.
