Thursday Thirteen - Thanksgiving Edition #3

So another Thanksgiving rolls around. The yearly question of "what are you thankful for?" comes to mind again.... Thirteen things that I am Thankful for this Thanksgiving....

1. The love of my life, Tony. He came along, tore down the brick wall that I had built around my heart. He is truly amazing. Not a day goes by that he doesn't treat me like a queen. He has all the qualities that a girl could ask for... a christian man, truthful, compassionate, romantic, loving.... I could go on but you get what I'm trying to say.

2. My kids. Yup, yup, yup.. I go through a "kid killing" routine every night... but I am truly thankful for my 2 healthy kids who are full of life. I am thankful that Matt has a good head on his shoulders and knows what he wants to do with his life. I am thankful that Kaitlin is a normal child you loves being who she is.

3. My Mother. The true matriach of this family. This remarkable lady has been through many difficulities in her life. She was the only daughter so she took care of her mother and daddy until they passed away. She took care of my brother Kim who passed away at the age of 43 from diabetes. Then there was my dad.... I just pray that I can be as remarkable and strong as my mother.

4. My Dad. The man who was a christian man. The man who was kind, loving and very, very wise. The man with the most wonderful set of moral values. Yes Daddy is now my angel, but I am still so very thankful for having him as my Dad.

5. Kim, my older brother. He NEVER complained one bit. He was always concerned with how you were doing than himself. He was very appreciative of everything. He was my best friend. I could go to him with ANYTHING and he was always there for me.

6. Chris, my younger brother. Even though he and I fought growing up, we are now friends. He was there for me when I went through the terrible divorce. I could always call him and just vent. I remember one statement he made to me "Lee, we may have our differences, but there ain't no SOB going to treat my sister this way." Of course, there were many more, but just goes to show you can do or say what you want to about me, but don't mistreat my family or else!

7. My SP Friends. WOW, what can I say here. I could have never imagined that through one wonderful soul man that one could make so many, many friends. Friends who are there through thick and thin. Friends who laugh with you, cry with you, make jokes with you... friends who are always there.

8. For the roof over my head and the food on my table. Sometimes we take for granted what we have and complain for what we don't have. There are so many out there that will not have a roof over their head or food to eat this Thanksgiving. But not only on this Thanksgiving, but every day of the year.

9. For my health. I am healthy. Yup, have a few minor aches and pains, but it could be a lot worse.

10. For my small town. I am thankful for the small town that I live in. Everybody knows everybody and watch out for each other. There is very little crime, if any and I feel safe. My kids feel safe. We don't have to worry about walking out of our house at night. The only thing that may "get" us are the critters who wander up in our back yard.

11. I’m thankful to live in a free country. Nothing more to be said.

12. For my job. I may complain alot but there are so many people who do not have a job.

13. I'm thankful for everything. Good and bad it doesnt' matter. Because everything we experience helps us grow to be stronger people.

Ok... this was easy... HAPPY THANKSGIVING ALL
