I had a request this morning asking what I am thankful for this Thanksgiving. I think it is good to think about this as we tend to just go on with our lives and not stop and appreciate the things that really matter to us. So I am going to tell you now the things that I am grateful for.

First of all, I am grateful that my DH is feeling better after so many problems this summer with his heart. The problems have not gone away, but with the amazing heart medications available nowadays, he is doing so much better and is stabilized. We have been married for 48 1/2 years so what happens to one affects the other.

I am grateful for my two sons who make me so proud as they have grown into amazing human beings. They are very caring people and wonderful husbands. What more can we ask for in our children.

I am grateful for my lovely granddaughter who seems to have found her path in university and is studying so hard and doing so well. It has taken her awhile but I guess it does sometimes. She is a loving, caring part of our family and treasures all the people who are a part of her life. Family time is very important to her and even with her busy schedule she makes time for her family.

Finally, I am grateful for my health and my energy at this point in my life. I am grateful that I am able to go to the gym and do the things that I do. I am grateful for all the wonderful people that I have met this way and that I now consider as my friends. And last, but not least, I am grateful for my Spark friends. If someone would have told me a few years ago that I would have on-line friends I would have laughed. But I do now, and I am so grateful for all of you and the difference you have made in my life. Thank you!

    Such a nice blog Donna -- and I am so thankful I've gotten to know YOU and all my other SP friends as well. It certainly has helped the journey! We used to do that at the table on Thanksgiving and go around and have each person tell what they were thankful for but we've gotten away from that. May have to reintroduce that for next year!!
