So epic fall… my attempt to write daily blog of thankfulness has failed somewhere around the fifth day of the month. I certainly feel thankful each day but daily life has taken over and the exercise of daily blogging just can’t happen.
Rather than abandon the idea, I am going to play catch up so sit back and hold on to your seats:
I am thankful for music. Although I know that my choice in music has not always been the best and I am horrible about singing with my favorite song, I am thankful for music and how it makes me feel! Nothing is better than singing in your car or in the shower or dancing to tunes while vacuuming!
I am thankful for all law enforcement and fire department agencies in my area. I had the pleasure of getting to volunteer at a community event in which law and fire officers helped families with a Secret Santa adventure. With all the negative press in the world for what bad things law enforcement and fire agencies do, it was amazingly touching to see them volunteer their time and fully interaction with children, ages 5-12, to make their Christmas magical.

I am thankful for coffee. Coffee came into my life a few years ago and althought it is not something that I ‘have’ to have or even something that I engage in daily but nonetheless, coffee is a welcome addition to my life and something that keeps me warm, awake and happy.
I am thankful for my friend LaTanya. She is an amazing reminder to me that a good friendship is not one in which you have to see each other every day or talk every day. But rather you can still have a good, close friendship if you focus on the positive, good times that you do have together. Thank you for the laughs over beer and thank you for also reminding me that it is not all about me!
I am thankful for allergy meds. As a mother, I certainly don’t want to be in a situation where I knowing agree to something that my child will have to do or take for the rest of her life to make her healthy but in this case, I am certainly thankful for allergy meds and how they make it easier for my daughter to get through each day without being overwhelmed with sinus stuff.
I am thankful for the power of beer. Beer speaks – a delivered Christmas tree for a 12 pack of beer (that was a gift and left over from my birthday) – consider it done!
I am thankful for my good friend Michael. After a long day of work and a sick kiddo, Michael showed up with beautiful flowers and smiles to help kiddo feel better and to give me a break! Michael and his outstanding son came into our lives a few months ago in a very unexpected way but I am thankful for his ability to make me laugh, his many attempts to make my life less stressful and for his kindness!
Well now that we are caught up, let’s see if I can stick with this plan!
