Our Thankful Post

Click to play this Smilebox photobook: Thankful



This Thanksgiving, we have so much for which to be thankful.  Saunders and I were talking about all the things we have to be grateful for earlier this week, and it is both overwhelming and humbling to list so many things that we have to appreciate.  We work very hard every day to earn what we have achieved, but we are also very lucky to have the life we have been given.

We are so fortunate to have a healthy, happy family ... to have such a precious and precocious daughter ... to still be happily married after six years ... to be so close to our caring, supportive parents  ... to be good friends with our brothers and sisters-in-laws ... to have all our family living close to us this year ... to have a loyal group of close-knit friends ... to have our sweet pets ... to have a beautiful, safe home ... to have two stable and successful jobs in this job market ... to have two reliable cars ... to have weathered the economic crisis with a little money left in the bank ... to be able to travel ... to be able to enjoy each other and live our life with relatively few worries.  We have so much to be thankful for this year!  We hope that everyone who reads this blog knows how thankful we are for you and how much we value your friendship and love.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
