In The Spirit Of Thanksgiving

51 Things I Am Grateful For:

  1. My Son JCH. For he is truly the light of my life.
  2. My Mother & My Father. Their undying love and support amazes me.
  3. My whole entire family. Both sides. We may be crazy, and slightly dysfunctional, but I’d be nothing without each and every one of you.
  4. My Best Friend Jennifer. I can always count on her to backup all my bad decisions. (Just kidding.)
  5. My oldest and dearest friend Leslie. Without her guidance, I don’t know how I would have turned out. You rule. The End. Kisses.
  6. My male Best Friend BFD / Bdawg. The man who is forever talking me off of the ledge. I love you.
  7. All of my ‘Real Life’ friends: Olly, Patty, Tiffany, Pammie. Each one of you bring something special into my life. I would be incomplete without you.
  8. Chef BrookeStone. I would have starved to death without you.
  9. The Written Word. Or Spoken. Just WORDS.
  10. My Blog. And all of the wonderful people that have come into my life as a result of this blog. Ya’ll have: Made me laugh, made me cry, held my hand, inspired me, and taught me so very much.

  • I am thankful that I began reading your blog – it has given me so much. What an inspiring list. I laughed at the inclusion of baby wipes. I always have a pack in my bag. They come in very handy, don’t they?

  • Happy Thanksgiving!!

    I wish we celebrate Thanksgiving in Malaysia but we don’t. Ah well…

    I so envy #38…


    Dood, you’re just an all around great gal. I think I can speak for everyone in saying that your sincerety in making everyone feel like a close friend is special…and that racks up major points in the Karma Book. I’m glad we found each other, I’m happy you’re gonna have money in you pocket and new socks on your freakishly small feet (just kidding!).

    I LOVE YOU FOREVER AND EVER fro the B-day wishes…it meant a lot.

    PS: I’m SO SORRY I haven’t responded to your e-mails…I’m absurdly busy (with non-b-day stuff unfortunately …sorry, sorry, sorry.
