It is once again that time of year.  Time to stuff yourself with turkey, and stuffing and mashed potatoes.  Then stuff yourself again with pumpkin pie, and goodies and treats.  Somewhere in the middle of all this gluttony you will most likely bow your head and say "thanks" to the One who has given us everything.  

There are so many things in this life to be thankful for, the obvious, my kids who are the greatest in the world, my husband who puts up with me, my family and good friends, and a house over your head.  What about all the little things though?  All the things daily we take for granted that make life so much richer?  The other day I was eating peanut butter (yes straight from the jar) and realized how AWESOME peanut butter is, and so many other things in life, so I started to make a list of things I'm thankful for.

I am thankful for...

a warm shower
Diet Vanilla Dr. Pepper from Sonic
my pillow-top mattress
peanut butter
a warm fire and apple cider on a snowy day
laughter (especially my kids)
flowers in the spring
trees in the fall
the Twilight books
my comfy sweat pants even though my husband hates them
watermelon in the summer
Guitar Hero
chap stick
contact lenses (though I'd be more thankful for Lasik...)
my mixer, my blender, my food processor and all my kitchen gadgets
The Office
good food
good wine
good movies
my fuzzy boots
pumpkin spice candles
chicken soup
my camera
my iPhone
my van
leftover Thanksgiving food
pumpkin pie
and so much more....
