I Am Giving Thanks!

I am joining Lynn over at the Vintage Nest today for her "Give Thanks" party.  Be sure to pop on over to see all of the participants!

While there are a number of things we can post about today, I am going to keep it simple, which is something I don't usually do, ha!  In my line of work, I am constantly telling people to look around and focus on what you have rather than what you think you don't have!  So, that's what I am doing today.  Here's what I am thankful for:

3 (triplets) wonderful children who are happy, healthy and bright!  They are all off attending college and living their life.  While I miss them a whole lot, I am glad too that they are spreading their wings!  When I first found out I was having triplets I was stunned!  "What" I thought, "I don't know how to take care of one child, let alone 3!"  But, as most things do, it all worked out.  Actually I wouldn't have it any other way.  I loved, absolutely loved, raising these children!

A husband who supports everything I do, without question!  I am, er, a bit head strong, and he is the most patient and caring man I could have ever met!  He is a great dad too and took on a lot of responsibility so I could finish grad school when the children were just toddlers.  He also supports my little business and I am truly grateful.

I am always truly thankful for our wonderful country and those soldiers who risk their lives to protect her!  Thank you!

Have a wonderful, thankful day!

I came to visit from the Vintage Nest. Triplets... I can't even imagine. But, on the other hand, triple the blessings. They are beautiful (then and now).
We all have so much to be grateful for.

Have a blessed Thanksgiving.
