The coming Holiday

I am looking forward to this Thanksgiving. I have alot to be thankful for. Yes, my husband is currently looking for work, but I have him with me, as loyal and loving as ever. I'm thankful for my Nicole, the only child I will ever have, and she is very precious and close to my heart. I also have my mother and my mother -in-law. Having both of them with me I feel twice blessed as I love both of them dearly. And for the most part we have our health, we have a roof over our heads, and most important of all that is that we have each other.

I'm also thankful for my best friend Nikki. I will be unable to spend this holiday with her as some stuff came up and she and her family are unable to make the drive here, but I spent a good hour or more on the phone with her the other night and thouroughly enjoyed our talk. She has been my best friend since the 7th grade. She has a very sweet husband and two adorable kids ( I will try and post a picture of them later today or tomorrow), but she lives about 8 hours away so we are so thankful for the telephone.

Well, probably tomorrow I will do a post tribute to my dad, who will be gone 3 yrs this November 26. I miss him every day , but am thankful that he is no longer suffering .

I hope everyone that reads this has a great Thanksgiving and that you stop and realize the true meaning of the holiday. Its not all about the turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie and all the trimmings ( although thats a good benefit), but about everything you have to be thankful for, even if you don't realize it at the moment.

Beautiful sentiment Marcy. You do have such a great family! That daughter of yours is a gem and I can see she is happy and full of life and she learned that from her parents. I will always think of Chris in his pink t-shirt, lol. I hope you have some extra comfort this week while missing your daddy.
