Monday's Musings

We are fast approaching Thanksgiving. So I decided to show you a few of the people I'm most thankful. 

Here's my family. That's my wonderful husband of 25 years in the back. And my kids.

You know what I love about my family?

They love each other.

After dinner one night, I had my camera handy and was getting a shot of "the last supper" before my daughter headed off to college. Do you see how much fun they were having? They were joking and laughing. This picture just makes me smile.

And here are my boys wrestling with each other. Yes, the youngest two have to gang up on their big brother. They were having fun.

And I'm thankful for that.

I'm also thankful for music. My daughter just loves to go sit and play. She composes her own songs. I love listening to her. And so does one of our cats! A couple of my kids will just start singing. I love that, too.

I have five kids. My life is busy. But truthfully, I wouldn't trade it for anything.

I have much to be thankful for. And a wonderful family is at the top of my list!

Take a few minutes to think about what's important in life and what you have to be thankful for.

And I'd love to hear what YOU are thankful for!
