Spin Cycle...the week of thanks

So this year I am actually trying to teach Leo that Thanksgiving is here so we can show our thanks for each other and the things around us. I told him that I was thankful for him, for daddy, for all of our family, for our food, etc. etc. But when I asked him what he was thankful for I got an answer I never expected...but fully should have. He at first told me he didn't know but then screamed CANDY! It was so funny. Kids make you think more about what you are thankful for than you probably thought you could. But here are a few things I am thankful for. Some shallow and some from the heart.
  • I am thankful for my family. They are more help for my mental well-being than anyone else. My mom is my best friend so without her I would be a mess! My hubby keeps me sane by all his funny comments and just laughter is a constant. I am thankful for my monkey because he makes everything worthwhile!
  • I am thankful for our DVD players! The portable one of course because it makes trips to the doctor so much more bearable.
  • I am thankful for our roof over our head and the food inside. I know there are so many people out there now that are not able to afford such luxuries so even if I complain about wanting a bigger house or more bathrooms I am thankful I am able to provide for my family.
  • I am thankful for cheese dip and pumpkin pie. NOt together but they do sound delicious right about now!
  • I'm thankful for modern medicine because without it the monkey could be really sick, but instead we are able to keep a breathing machine in our house for his little flare-ups.

Those are just a few things I am thankful for. I hope everyone has a happy and safe Thanksgiving!
