Around this time every year, until November, I get very sentimental and thankful. Nicholas receiving his shots and living the night afterwards brought this years period on early.
I thank my lucky stars that I have beautiful children who are smart, well behaved and I have the patience to be a good mother. That I have a husband that loves me for who I was, am and will be, who works hard to support his family that he loves dearly and isn't afraid to show it. That I live in the mountains of North Carolina, where it is quiet, clean and everyone knows everyone. That I have a living mother and father and that my eldest brothers and sisters live no where close *laugh* That I have a washing machine and dryer at home. That my car is paid for and in great running order. That our bills are paid, there is plenty of food in the cabinets and we still have $20 to spare. Thankful for second chances and the people that give them. Lord knows I used that last one to the brim.
There are more...
