Thanksgiving 2013

2013: The Year of Awesome

I have so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving day.  It's a charmed life I live.  I try to remember the line from that Ben Harper song - "If you have everything, you have everything to lose." - keeps things in perspective and reminds me to not take any of it for granted.  But of course I take things for granted - practically all of them.  I bitch about my job, my husband, my sweet baby's hatred of sleep - and then remind myself how lucky I am to have every single complaint, because my problems ain't that bad.  I strive constantly to remember not to bitch about my bounty of blessings. 

I'm thankful that I don't have to stretch to find things to be thankful for.  I can hit the big things without blinking - new baby, adoring husband, stable job, robust health, loving parents and extended family, warm home, food in the fridge, money in the bank.  I feel guilty sometimes for having so much - what makes me so special?  Why do I get to have everything, when so many people in the world have nothing? 

I was going to get so much deeper with that line of thought, but Geneva woke up from her nap.  I'm so thankful for that little girl. 

Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. ^ Hi there Beautiful, I remember you.
    Know what I remember most?
    How beautiful your personality, even when you were trying to be ugly.
    Date? More? or just memories?
