Let step in a time machine, oh maybe ten Thanksgivings from now and see what I'm thankful for shall we?
Absolutely thankful I won the lottery...that could NOT have come at a better time. The $250 winnings paid for my kid's orthodontics appointment.
I'm thankful that my car is still going strong with 367,000 miles on it and I haven't had car problems in 9 years, except for the whole horn thing.
Thankful for my friend, Christina, who I live on a farm with, in hiding, because we've single-handedly pissed off the entire blogosphere and after the third witch hunt we knew we had to go underground. Seriously, pitchforks?
Thank GOD the cause of Autism was discovered, and it's eradicated; thousands of therapists lose jobs, and now have blogs.
I think the secret to me not having one wrinkle in these 10 years is directly proportionate to the wine and chocolate intake.
I'm still humbled by all the hub-bub about me finding a cure for cellulite; I stumbled upon it really as I was just puttering around the garage.
I'm thankful I'm not the black sheep of the family anymore, and the crown has been passed on to younger more naive siblings.
Thankful to all the hot men with-jobs-who-love-kids-don't-have-commitment-issues-or-wives-or-girlfriends, I've dated...wait, even a time machine is not a miracle worker; gonna have to refer to Jesus on this one.
Thankful for my kids, the two loves of my life that brings me peace, joy and absolute insanity.
Thankful for my friends, who are more like my family and support me unconditionally and without my need to ask for help.
Thankful for my family who puts up with me, and still reads my blog even though I have 5 readers.
Have a blessed Thanksgiving, my friends, hold those near and dear to you, close your eyes, take a breath and embrace how truly, truly, blessed we are.
