Friday Five: 5 things I am Thankful for this year.

Black Friday just isn't for me.  Its far to crazy out there, so here I am.  Its almost 9am and everyone is still fast asleep.  Except for Chico the Chihuahua who is old and always up at the crack of dawn to go outside.  Anyways I wanted to take a few minutes and share some things I am thankful for this year!

I'm so thankful to have fallen in love with an amazing man.  He lets me listen to my music in the car.  He double checks to make sure they put cheese on my burgers when we go out to eat.  And he does his own laundry! He is one of the hardest workers I know and will always do what he needs to do to provide for his family. And he loves me unconditionally!  There is so much more but I know y'all don't want to hear it!

I'm thankful for the good health of my family.  My boys are growing like weeds.  They are strong and happy.  My mom quit smoking!  My sister in law just had major surgery for her Crohns and she is home recovering. Even though chemo is tiring, my Aunts tumors are shrinking!  And I am feeling pretty good!  God is good.  

I'm thankful for all that we have.  It may not be a huge house, but its our house.  It may not have much in it, but it is filled with love and memories.  And sometimes it feels like its not big enough for all of us, but we are together and that is what matters most.  We have two cars, even though I don't drive. I'm also thankful for the friends and family who drive me everywhere I need to go.  The boys have books and toys.  I'm thankful for the dogs as they are a big part of our family too.  

I am thankful that no one in our family is alone.  We are all with family this week.  My oldest brother came down to be with us and my little sister got to be home for dinner.  Mom is with my brother and his family.  Little brother has his sweet family with him.  And that my oldest nephew was home with my sister and their family.  And since my in laws only live two blocks away they were able to be here with us too. Such a blessing.  One of these holidays we are going to have to all get together!  Its on my bucket list!

And last but not least I am thankful for this blog.  I don't put much into it, but have gotten so much in return.  The friendships that have come from this are solid gold.  And the best part is that I have gotten to meet so many other bloggers, in real life and virtually that I cant imagine my life without.  For someone who is mostly home bound, that is such a blessing.  

OK that is way more than just 5 things but you get the point.  What are you thankful for this holiday season?  Are you able to be with family and friends?
