Happy Thanksgiving!

I don't often convey my feelings for others but this Thanksgiving I feel compelled to do so. I am so thankful for my family.  Katie for being a great example to me and her brothers and sister and for Andy for loving and taking care of Katie.  Jake for being obedient and loving to learn.  Ben for always doing the right thing and being the best worker. Sam for being fun loving and for loving me. Nick for his endless affection and his willingness to do his best. Maggie for being  a girl after all those boys and loving to try new things. Jay for loving me regardless of the person that I am and for loving our kids and always trying to have fun with them. My Mom for her little quirky ways but who thinks all her kids and grandkids are the greatest. And for a Father in heaven who trusted me to raise this bunch of hoodlums and for always having my back. I feel very lucky and exceptionally blessed for the life I have. Happy Thanksgiving!

This is the best little Thanksgiving entry I've read. Thanks for sharing. What would you give me if I could write a "gratitude" type post and keep it concise like yours?

What a great time to sit back and reflect on how blessed we really are. You really do have a lot to be thankful for. Don't we all. Happy Thanksgiving!

Wonderful post. Love your expression of gratitude and you really do have a great family. It's nice to be able to look at each individual and appreciate each one for their particular goodness. Happy Thanksgiving! Hope the big "Grandma" day is soon! Please let us know!
