With Thanksgiving being this week my children reflected on what things they are thankful for.
While I am not as crafty, I most certainly have a very long list of what makes me thankful.
Please allow me to indulge and share just a few of the things I would like to say Thank You for.
I am thankful to my husband – who loves the grumpy Ev, the tired Ev, the spends too much money on shoes Ev… and every other Ev that makes an appearance. Thank you.
I am thankful for my gorgeous children – who bring me the kind of joy that even the prettiest Christian Louboutin shoes can’t compete with. Thank you.
I am thankful for my parents – who picked up their lives when I was young and moved to give me the best life possible. Thank you.
I am thankful for my extended family – while the miles across countries do separate us, they do not diminish the bond we share. Thank you.
I am thankful for the friends in my life – who have helped me in hard times, laughed in the good times, helped me adjust in the new times, and shared some fairly wild times. Thank you.
I am thankful for the freedom to make choices – that I have always lived in countries where a woman has the right to voice an opinion and make her own choices. Thank you.
I am thankful for the opportunity to live my dream and move to NY – and to everyone who helped and supported my efforts towards the big move. Thank you.
I am thankful for my first NY Thanksgiving – for my NY friends who cooked the amazing feast I just ate, thank you.
Happy Thanksgiving, and let the eating continue with leftovers tomorrow!!
