Counting My Blessings

This holiday season, remember the things that matter most. Here are 20 things to inspire gratitude.

I'm thankful for...

  • Sticky kisses.
  • Our nation of abundance.
  • Chocolate.
  • Reruns of my favorite shows.
  • Loveys.
  • Your child's many talents.
  • Naps.
  • The babysitter who is willing to come over a second time.
  • The prepared food counter at the supermarket.
  • Baby wipes. What would we do without them?
  • The Internet. When it's 3 AM and the baby is coughing, you can quietly look up croup, and have a chat with another mom who's hovering over a sick baby.
  • Videotapes or DVDs. Sometimes that 30 minutes of respite is all that stands between you and total insanity.
  • Photo albums.
  • Antibiotics. Imagine having to worry that every disease might turn into something life-threatening.
  • Vacuum cleaners. It's nice to know you can clean the cookie crumbs and pet hair if you really wanted to.
  • A king-size bed and snuggling.
  • Smile, especially when your child knows he did something wrong.
  • Friends who understand everything without a single word said.
  • Family.
  • The sublime disorder of a home full of children and laughter and love.

Remember to count your blessing and be thankful for what you do have.

Happy Thanksgiving!
