This year I am especially grateful for a new little man that I didn't realize would be in my life this year. He has been a wonderful blessing to me in the short 8 weeks he's been here. I love him dearly. My life is better and more complete because of him.
I am also thankful for:
my friends (including my friends in blog-world),
my father's successful back surgery,
my house that provides shelter to my family,
my husband for working long hours to provide for our family of eight,
only having 12 pounds to lose of "baby fat,"
my sewing machine,
and many, many more things.
Have a wonderful holiday weekend. If you don't hear from me for a few days, don't worry. I'll be one of the crazy Black Friday shoppers and then shopping more on Saturday!
