Happy Thanksgiving!

I am thankful for...

My husband.

My family.

My second family.

My friends...You know who you are!! You don't all fit into one picture!

My front yard.

A roof over my head.

Food on the table.

A warm bed to sleep in.

An internet connection/laptop allowing me to stay connected to the world!

The wonderful education I received over the years.

And I will NEVER EVER again take for granted the following:

Washing machine/dryer


Sanitary water out of the tap

Hot water heater

Air conditioning/Heat

Public safety

Smoothly paved roads

Screened windows

Quality health care

US wages/salaries

Clean streets, sidewalks, rivers, etc

What are YOU thankful for?


  1. I am thankful for this blog post :) I miss my big sister. I am thankful for you! I love you.

  2. ohhhh, Kelli....I am so grateful and blessed to have you in my life. You have always been my "sweet Kelli".....Always have been, always will be. I am so proud of you and can't wait to wrap my arms around you and Tiago. I love you both and by next Thanksgiving we will be at the same table having a feast of turkey and all the fixings! :)
    Love, Mom

  3. I am thankful for Barb's comments because I can totally hear her voice saying exactly what she writes: "My sweet Kelli...." "...a feast of turkey and allll the fixings". What a nice mommy you have. I am also thankful for my family's health. It is easy to take good health for granted, but I have learned to appreciate it after a year of working at a nursing home.
    I can't wait until the next time we can spend Thanksgiving together. Love you Kelli!
