Happy Thanksgiving!

Here we are...well, here I am.  Another middle of the night post.  3 little hours separate me from my patients and my days off. The end of those 3 little hours also marks the end of my posting here on the unit. {tiny happy dance} It's a super tough unit to work on, but with super amazing staff, however...returning to casual status at the hospital will afford me a bit more of a "life" and I am looking forward to that!

Thanksgiving is upon us, one of my favourite holidays. Why? I'll admit, it's the food. Ok & family.  In our family, Thanksgiving is just me, the hubby & the kids.  No extended family.  Just us.  Pj's all day, food all day, movies all day, MNF & MLB {go phillies! go rays! show NY who's boss!}, & coffee all day ending with a perfect little holiday feast cooked by yours truly.

What am I thankful for this year? Always so much; my perfect children who give me SO MUCH joy everyday, my very wonderful & supportive husband who lets me be me and keeps me in line {OY!}. I am so thankful that he loves all three of us beyond measure. I am thankful, although it has been the most difficult part of my days as of late, that I have the privilege to be a nurse, I have a fantastic & rewarding job.  I am thankful for my family, and my amazing extended family, Roy & Rosy too.  I am thankful that we are in a position to educate, feed, clothe and provide not only basic necessities, but can afford little luxuries for our family when others have not so much.  I am lastly ever so thankful for my friends.  Words cannot express how grateful I am to have the friends that I do.  I love my new found buddies in Blogland , & The Trifecta is one of my greatest joys {even tho they have forced me on prior occasions into cardmaking ;) }. My list is so much longer than this, and truth be told, I am not just thankful for these people & things on this weekend only...I am thankful on a daily basis for all of the above.  What are you thankful for? 

I hope this weekend finds you all in good company, in good health & well fed!
