Thanksgiving is in 2 days. I stood in the kitchen today and thought of things that I'm thankful for right now. Things that I'm enjoying right now. Simple things. It's so easy for me to get caught up in wishing for things to be different. Every holiday season, I wish to be with my family but it just doesn't work that way. This week will be especially hard knowing that everyone is at home to say goodbye to Grandpa Z. I've settled in my heart to make the most of this week. Not to be wishful but to be thankful. There are so many things to be thankful for...this list is not inclusive. 

Happy, healthy kids.
A clean kitchen.
Folded laundry.
Cool weather.
Quiet evenings.
A husband who wants the best for us and works hard to give us the best.
Little Mr. constantly reminding me of his presence.
A place to go this Thanksgiving.
Our merciful heavenly Father. 
Countless happy memories of holidays past.
My friends.
My family.
Making new happy memories with our kids.
