Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity…Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.
I totally love that quote!
It's the time of the year to sit back and think about what you are thankful for...
I make it a point to pause everyday to thank the Goddess for my fantastic life.
I have so much to be thankful for it would take me all day on Thanksgiving day
...so I do a little everyday...
But, for the record, here are a few....
My fabulous friends and family.
Ryan - who has a bigger heart then anyone I know. I am truely lucky to have such a wonderful friend. I have found a soul mate in that man!
Shane - who loves me unconditionally. For the most part he "gets" me and understands me - which is truely remarkable since I rarely understand myself!
Mommie Dearest - I couldn't have asked for better! She taught me to be myself - no matter what, to be the creative, whacky individual that I am today - LUBBA MOM!

Marybeth - my lil'sister, my twin 8 years removed who is basically a mini me, sarcasm, wharped mind and all. Love you sis!
Anna Banana - the mailman's kid, or so Marybeth and I teased growing up. I am glad you have come come to the wharped side with us - soon you will be fully wharped. Love you sis!
My kickin' job and my employees (ok, most of them *laughs*) - which even on the worst day is pretty freakin' awesome!
My health & appearance - I may not be able to run marathons, there may be a little more of me to love then on some, I may have more then a "few" grey hairs now, I may have to worry about receding gums, my ahsma, menapause crap, Cyd the cyst (yes, I named my ovarian cyst - remember how wharped I am...) and whatever tomorrow brings... even if I am not Demi Moore...I am pretty damn gorgeous for 46!
Those are some of the things I am grateful for...
What about you?
But now I better get my tushy to the liquer store -
I am in charge of the cocktails for tomorrow's faux family feast
and I have to get Sheldon in his Turkey sweater from Auntie Joyce...
Oh - I almost forgot...
I am also thankful for all of you!
*WARM THANKFUL HUGS*
Brightest Blessings for a Terrific Thanksgiving!
