Happy Thanksgiving!

I'd like to wish all my readers and followers a Happy Thanksgiving!  May your day be blessed and may your plate overflow.  I'm thankful for several things in my life and here are just a few:

1.  God's blessings and grace -  Without Him, I wouldn't have hope or courage.  I believe all my blessings come from God.

2.  My family - With the exception of a small handful, I have a very supportive and loving family.  I like that I can be myself around them, without having to be pretentious.  They accept me whether I'm dressed to the nines or unkempt in lounge pants.

3.  My husband and kids - Yeah, they're family too but they see the most of me - both good and bad.  I have amazing kids who haven't caused me a world of grief and a husband who won't run and hide when I flip my switch at a moment's notice.

4.  Roller Derby - It's a crazy brutal sport and I'm just a newbie.  It's challenged me to whole new levels and motivated me to care more about my health.  The coach, my brother, has been super encouraging and so have most of the veterans on the team.

5.  Job Security - I have a job that's not very likely to go under or layoff (knock on lots of wood).  There's cattiness and gossip, but my shiftmates are pretty cool and help me get through the night. 

What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?
