So much to be thankful for

As we celebrate Thanksgiving this week, I am reminded of how lucky I have been – even with the last couple of months taken into consideration.  So to make it easy here are 33 things I am thankful for in 2015 – from the serious to the silly.  (in no particular order)

  1. The love, grace and mercy of God
  2. James – my love who has been so supportive
  3. Mom – a role model for compassion
  4. Grandma – she loves me fiercely
  5. Heather & Jeff – my sister and her husband who I don’t always understand but I always love
  6. Hayley – 13 years of smart, defiant, strong-willed girl love
  7. Jake – 10 years of smart, cute, cuddly boy love (he would hate me saying that)
  8. Penny – mentor and friend
  9. Sara – my other sister and Facebook partner in crime
  10. Matthew – we don’t talk often, but I know he loves me and I love him.  Friends as always.
  11. Work – for keeping my mind off things in my real life some days
  12. My boss – who has been overwhelmingly supportive in this last couple of months
  13. My co-workers – who remind me I am not alone in this
