I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
I have so much to be thankful for this year. It has a been an amazing year.
Of course, at the very top of my list is my family. My kids and my incredible Hubby are my world; they make me laugh, inspire me, and make each day an adventure! My heart swells with pride and gratefulness to be part of such an amazing, close-nit family.
I’m blessed with an amazing extended family with parents, siblings, in-laws, nieces and nephews that make the world a special place and touch our lives daily even when separated by the miles.
I am grateful to have friends near and far that bring meaning and depth to my life. Friends who know just what to say and how to say it! Friends who know just how to make my day brighter. Friends who know me probably even better than I know myself (and keep me in line!). Friends who are just plain FUN to be around! 😉
I am incredibly grateful for my health. After the horrible, awful year I had two years ago, I am grateful to be mostly healed and on the road again… literally! I’m finally able to run again (even just short distances) and my balance and vision issues are definitely getting better bit by bit! Hooray! (Of course, you can see my video blog entry about all my ear drama here.) I’m grateful for my vivofit for not letting me off the hook when I’m being a slacker! 🙂
I’m very thankful to be a citizen of this country. As I look out at the trouble in other places in the world, I’m grateful for the peace and stability of our nation. I’m grateful for the infrastructure and opportunities that we have living here. I’m grateful for the way all the citizens of our country contribute to make this a better country and community to live in.
It’s been a huge transition from Parents.com to our new location this past year. I’m truly grateful that much of that tough work is behind me!!! There were many, many nights I was up until 2 or 3am doing work on the blog (fixing bad links, uploading broken picture links, uploading pdf after pdf!). I’m so grateful for the support my family gave me through this transition period! It’s definitely a family labor of love! I feel very, very lucky to be able to work from home and to have my own business. What an incredible age we live in!
I love homeschooling the kids and feel thankful we have this opportunity! I love watching them blossom into their own academically and personally.
And finally, I have to tell all of you Dear Readers how grateful I am for your continued support and readership! I am truly amazed and humbled by the number of people who continue to visit our blog each day. Wow!! I love all of your email messages… and always read all of your comments here and on Facebook. It’s been an amazing journey. Thank you for visiting our part of the Internet and being a part of our Homeschooling Journey!
Warm holiday wishes,
~Liesl and the Kids
