I'm thankful for my parents and my husband, all of whom are in good health. Thankfully Daddy Bird has recovered completely from his mini-stroke of a few months ago.
I'm thankful that I have, for the most part, really good kids this year.
I'm thankful I have a job I love, in a building I love, with a staff I love.
I'm thankful that Goth Girl came back to visit and although she took time off to have a baby (at 16), she is finishing up high school, plans to graduate, and is applying to college to study nursing.
I'm thankful that Stoopid Boy, who I have always adored, will be going to college to major in music and plans to be a youth minister. For those of you who followed Stoopid Boy's antics over his middle school years, you'll realize that he'll make one amazing youth minister because he's "been there, done that."
I'm thankful for great friends like Mrs. Eagle, Mrs. Bunny, and Mrs. Social Studies.
I'm thankful that I get lots of snuggles, headbutts, purrs, and loving from my feline children.
And I'm thankful for my readers. You guys rock.
And that's just a start....
