Belated Gratitude

November and Thanksgiving is the time to give thanks and to express your gratitude. This is my belated gratitude post. I am thankful for my three sons. I spent Thanksgiving and weekend with them and had such a wonderful time. I was thankful my oldest was able to be home for a couple of days.

I am also grateful for a wonderfully healthy little grandson. I even got to “babysit” him for a couple of hours Saturday evening. (Basically, I just held him until he fell asleep.) He has such wonderful little expressions.

I am thankful for my mom and dad. Mom called me both on Wednesday worrying about me driving late into the night and on Sunday as I was coming home worried about the weather. It’s nice to have somebody worrying about me every now and then. And thankful for Dad who flew to Kansas to spend the Thanksgiving with me and my boys. I am not sure he knows how grateful I am for him doing this every year. It’s hard to spend Thanksgiving at my ex-husband’s but with my dad there it makes it easier.

I am grateful for my wonderful Denver friends.  Need I say more?!  We are an eclectic bunch and that makes it so great.

While in Kansas, I got to see a lifelong friend for dinner and a best friend from high school for breakfast.  I am grateful to rekindle old friendships.  I have missed them over the years.

I am grateful I have a job to get up and go to every morning.  This time last year I lost the part-time job I was working at due to downsizing.  A lot has happened in a year.

There is a lot I am grateful for and it is hard to put it all in this post.  I am very thankful for all the little things as well as the big things that happen in my life.
