Happy Thanksgiving

The turkey is finished and the side dishes are all prepared for our holiday meal. I still have a couple hours before family arrives and I'm thinking about all the things I have to be thankful for on this Thanksgiving day.

I give thanks:

for being married to my best friend and making every day special

for the good or improved health of my family

for financial security for my mother and my father being able to live the retirement of his dreams

for having some really special girlfriends in my life to spend time with

for having a good job that is building my financial retirement goals

for emotional happiness and the material things I have worked hard for

and finally

for Twist and Ravelry for providing an outlet for creativity, sharing and the balance that knitting has brought to my life
