so many reasons

I am so very excited that this week is finally here. Thanksgiving is only a few days away and after that, I will allow myself to get in the christmas spirit. Kingston is already so excited with all the christmas trees at the mall. It's beautiful, watching your kids get filled with excitement as they understand it all for the first time.

I've spent the majority of this month in an attitude of thanks and I really can't think of too many things that have gotten me down. It's been so good for me. Even healing in a way. After this weekend, Christmasy things will be consuming a lot of my thoughts and time, so I wanted to take one more opportunity to list all the things I am thankful for...alphabetically :)

A - Appreciate i'm thankful that i'm in a place i can appreciate all the wonderful things around me 
B - Ben my wonderful husband
C - Coffee it makes me happy and warm
D - Dad i have a good one
E - Excitement in the eyes of my 3 year old
F - Fireplace i'm so happy to have one this year
G - Gardens  botanical gardens lit up with christmas lights
H - Health i thank God for this every night
I - Ice cream although i don't like it, my boys do and it makes them happy and is sometimes a good motivation tactic
