10 Days of Thanksgiving: Day 10

Today I am thankful for my family.

It seems only fitting to conclude this post series with what I am most thankful for - my family.  I feel incredibly blessed to be a member of a such a healthy, happy family.  There is so much to be thankful for when it comes to my family, and I can only attempt to sum it up with a short bullet-point list.

- I am thankful that my parents are still happily married after nearly 43 years!

- I am incredibly thankful that my dad beat cancer this year.

- I am thankful that my siblings all have strong marriages and that their spouses are people that I love as if they were my own flesh and blood.

- I am thankful that my 5 nephews and niece are healthy, thriving, happy kids!

- I am thankful that the holidays is a time of peace and excitement for us.

- I am thankful that I live driving distance away from most of my family - and that I will have an opportunity to visit my sister in Tucson this winter.

I am thankful for all these reasons, and so many more.

Happy Thanksgiving to my American readers, and have a wonderful weekend everyone!  I'll be at the lake until Saturday, and then I head to California on Sunday for my LAST work trip (hooray) which I will turn into a fun trip by spending the weekend with Kyria.  Due to my schedule, my posts will be spotty the next week and a half, but I am sure I'll be back in December with photos and stories from my time in California!

Wonderful! Sounds like an incredible family and I'm so glad to hear that your Dad's cancer is in remission--always a scary process. My dad's 9 years out from one, but just potentially starting another. Makes you relish each of the moments we have together. Happy happy thanksgiving! Have safe travels and a memorable, yet relaxing holiday full of love. Thankful for YOU as well this holiday season!

Family IS the best! You are lucky to mostly live close to them! I can't wait to see you and to show you around my neck of the woods. I hope that you are hungry and that you have good walking shoes!

From everything you've told me and written in this space, it seems like your family is very grounded and very loyal to one another. That's pretty special and definitely worthy of acknowledgment.
