Happy Thanksgiving Day

Oh Turkey Day.  I love Thanksgiving.  Its actually my most favorite holiday.  And while today was super low key, it was a good day. There is so much to be thankful for this year. 

I am so very thankful for my family.  My boys who are the reason I get up every morning.  My husband who has been to hell and back with me and still gives me butterflies. I'm thankful to have such great relationships with my parents and brothers and sisters.  I'm thankful to have good InLaws who let us stay with them :) And for Davids family who have always made me feel right at home! 

I'm thankful for my friends.  Some I have know since elementary school and some I have never met in person. Some I haven't talked to in ages and some I touch base with at least every other day.  A group of new friends Ive made have helped me get though the process of preparing for my transplant.  My transplant buddies.  I love you guys and am so thankful to have you in my life.

One last thing I am so very thankful for is the organ donor that will one day give me the gift of life.  And not just my donor, but all donors.  Be it blood, marrow or an organ, I am thankful that there are people so willing to help save and enrich the lives of others.  And someone is going to give me somethings that is going to let me be around longer to enjoy all theses things that I am thankful for. 

I cant believe the day is over already.  I'm in bed watching General Hospital and the crazy Quartermaine Thanksgiving dinner is making me miss my family like crazy. Tomorrow we will be out shopping and hopefully putting up the tree.   I'm really looking forward to Christmas and New Years and all the goodness the new year will bring.  Will it be the year I get my new liver?  Only time will tell :)

Happy Thanksgivings to you all!  I hope you were all surrounded by family, friends and lots of good food!  What are you thankful for this year?
