Thanksgiving Tablescape ~

I am thankful for my husband who is my best friend. I am thankful for all the humor he brings me each and every day. He is the most honest,wisest,and rational man I know. I never have to worry about decisions he makes because I know they are well-thought-out. I am thankful for all his loving ways the smallest things he'll do show how much he truly cares! I am thankful for my parents who are always there for us. I am thankful for their health and thankful that they taught us the value of hard work I am grateful that they instilled in me good morals and values that will be with me for a life time. I am thankful for my sister's who I speak to every morning I am grateful that they keep me grounded and set me straight when I need that extra love. I am thankful for my In laws who are always there for us. I am thankful for their many prayers, kindness and hospitality. I am thankful for the time I spent with all my nieces and nephews and even more grateful when they go back home :) I am thankful for all my aunts,uncles cousins, and extended family on both sides. I am grateful when I get a chance to spend some time with them. I am thankful for my close friends, I always feel instant happiness when I get to talk or be around them. whenever something happens there always there for me. I feel so very blessed to have close friends like them. I am thankful for my home and the opportunity I have to be here and take care of it. I am thankful I can spend Fall mornings working on my yard planting, pruning and watering. I am so very grateful when I see my flowers blooming especially my bird of paradise. I am thankful for the smallest things that we sometimes take for granted like smelling fresh air, taking long walks, snuggling with my favorite blanket, eating left over turkey, washing the car barefoot, taking long summer naps, warm winters where we don't have to shovel snow, and the sound of chicharras in the summer. Have a wonderful & blessed Thanksgiving!!
