I love being able to reflect on what I'm thankful for and I see a lot of people sharing a thankful thought every day this month or every day this week. Have you taken the time to think about what you're thankful for yet? It's always been a tradition in our family to tell each other what we're thankful for at Thanksgiving dinner.

We'd love to hear your thoughts!

Right now I'm rather thankful for the smallish child upstairs laughing hysterically with some friends.

I'm thankful for a flexible job that allows me to be there for the kids as they need me in school, on field trips, when they're sick, etc.

I'm thankful for a supportive family.

I'm thankful for good health (especially after having the flu last week!)

I'm thankful for a simple lifestyle where I don't have to be too stressed over money.

I'm thankful for my family and friends that have so blessed my life.
I'm thankful for the continued health and well-being of my family and friends.
I'm thankful for the opportunities that each of us have to make a difference in this world, whether it's simply offering a kind word or a helping hand.
I'm thankful for each day that I wake up and have the chance to be thankful all over again.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
