Give Me 5 for Friday: I Am So Very Thankful

It's November, the month to give thanks.  So on this cold, crisp, sunny Friday...I am going to share 5 things for which I am eternally grateful...every single day.

Here is Give Me 5 for Friday!

I am thankful for:

1.  Health
This will always be number one!  I am so thankful that my girls, my husband, our families and friends, and myself are all healthy.  Without this...there is nothing.

2.  My Girls
I am so thankful for my 3 funny, crazy, caring, beautiful, precious girls!  Words can't adequately express how grateful I am to have them and how blessed I feel.  So I'll just leave it at that.

3.  My husband
Last night I went for a run.  I had put a roast in the crock pot earlier in the afternoon and when I returned from the run, my husband had started making the rest of dinner.  Then I cleaned up after dinner and he emptied the dishwasher for me...which I hate doing.  He also helped with baths and read with the two oldest in bed so I could shower.  I am so thankful to have him and on most days, I truly feel like we are a team :)

4.  Living close to family
I live in Delaware...was born and raised here.  During Hurricane Sandy, it was comforting to know that we were so close to family.  Our power didn't go out and we didn't have any major damage.  But I knew that if it did, we always had somewhere to go.  And we were also able to have my brother in law and sister in law come over with their kids when their power did, in fact, go out.  It's so nice to have family around and for that I am thankful! 

5.  My friends
Last week, two of my very close friends celebrated their birthdays.  I have known these girls for about 27 years.  27 years.
They are two of my oldest and dearest friends and I honestly do not know what I would do without them.  We can vent and complain and be annoying and there is no judgement.  We can laugh and laugh.  We can cry.  Everyone needs friends like that.
It is my hope that my daughters grow up to have a few or even many good, true friends.  I have a handful of friends like that...that I have had since childhood.  We have been through so much times, sad times, graduations, jobs, deaths, and births.  And here we are.

I LOVE this song and it reminds me of my friends...

By the way, I am SO grateful for all of you that read my blog!  I really am and I still can't believe that you take time out of your day to read what I write.  SO thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
