Mom Dot Blog Party: Day 12

And, here it is... the very last day of the Blog party :-( I'm going to be sad to see it end. I've gotten to see so many fun, cool blogs over the course of the party, and I've even made some new friends which is even cooler. But, without further ado, here is the Day 12 question.........

I'm Thankful this Year because....
There is SO much I'm thankful for this year, even though this has probably been the worst year I've had in a very long time. I've had personal health issues that have almost landed me in the hospital several times, but because of the support of my friends (and serious medication!) , I've managed to pull myself out of the funk I was in and start to feel better day by day. So I'm thankful for them.
I have THE most wonderful family on the face of the earth. Sure, they can be a bit abrasive sometimes, but through thick and thin, no matter what, they've always been there for me. They've seen me through a divorce, financial troubles, and the relationship troubles of my current marriage. Their love and support of me has never wavered, and I am beyond thankful for them.
Words cannot express how thankful I am for my children. They are my lifeline and have saved me more than they can ever know. No matter how low I feel on any given day, they can smile or laugh, or just talk to me, and I instantly feel lifted. Every day I am thankful that I have 4 wonderful, healthy, adorable, loving children. Yes, I might have problems with my oldest two, but I wouldn't trade them for anything.
And I'm thankful for all the little things in life. Of waking up every day and knowing that I have a job to go to and a family to come home to. Of knowing I have a great place to hang out online and network with other cool moms. Of knowing that I have wonderful friends, whom I've never met in real life, but still check on me when they haven't heard from me in a few days......
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone... I hope you all have a lot to be Thankful for as well!
