Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi everyone - I hope you all have a very happy Thanksgiving and get to spend time with family and friends! In addition to stuffing my face with tons of food, I'm going to reflect on the past year and give thanks for all of the positive things and people in my life. I really am grateful for everything I have and in the hustle and bustle of each day, I sometimes forget how lucky I am. :) I would love to hear what you are all thankful for in the comments below!

  1. I am thankful that I survived the last year of incredible stress. I have a Brother dying of multiple cancers and I also inherited care of a mentally disabled Brother when My Mom died. I have had to teach him life skills and its very challenging as my Mom did not teach him how to care for himself. From January to June I do not remember anything but working with him 7 days a week and incredible mind numbing stress of his issues. I did not experience a spring and did not get to celebrate my Birthday. Once June arrived he finally became less stressful and I came up for air for a summer I did not recognize. I barely survived the emotional and stress impact of the last year. I am thankful I am healthy and that my cat who is dying of kidney disease is doing well. I am grateful that the 3 women in oversize SUV's that were driving drunk this year just missed hitting me head on and I escaped with minor injuries from all 3 drivers. I am grateful to have a roof over my head as always and food to eat when so many do not,
