What a beautiful day we are having here in Iowa! The sun is shinning and the temperature is mild and there is no snow on the ground (yeah!!). I had thought I would reflect on what I am thankful for but I think I can sum it up in two words: Friends, Family.
Everything I am thankful for some how ties back to my friends and family. I have the best girlfriends I have ever had in my life. Loyal, intelligent, kind, wonderful, spiritual women. And their support & guidance & wisdom has helped me to become a better person.
And my family (you know who you are) who love and support me every day. The family that helps take care of my children. The family that does my laundry. The family that holds me when I'm sick. The family that dances with me in the dinning room. The family that lifts me up when I'm emotionally spent. The family that listens to me vent and helps me to see things in a new light. The family that rallies around me in my times of triumph. That is the family that I am so very thankful for.
