Thankful Thursday 7.17.08

~~I am thankful for a teenaged son who still gives me hugs, snuggles on the sofa with me, and tells me that he loves me all the time.
~~I am thankful for a preteen daughter with a great smile and loving spirit.
~~I am thankful for a seven year old princess with a love for life and an amazing mind.
~~I am thankful for a husband who totally gets it when I have a really horrific visit from Aunt Flo, and tells me to take a hot bath and go to bed, while he takes care of everything.
~~I am thankful for my friend's healthy, brand new baby. 7 pounds, 7 ounces of beautiful baby girl!
~~I am thankful for a wonderful co-worker and friend, who has assisted me in resolving some work issues.
~~I am thankful for Weight Loss Surgery. I could not have lost 84 pounds without it. I am so glad I made this decision, and have made such a healthy change in my life.
~~I am thankful for a loving family.
~~I am thankful for being involved with a wonderful Rescue Group.
~~I am thankful for all of the things that led me to where I am right now in life.

That's a great list of things to be thankful for. When things aren't going like they should in my life, I need to make a list like this and read it over and over. Thanks for the reminder.

Thanks for visiting my blog. It sounds as if we have a lot in common. I have blogged about animal rescue before too. If we had a place in the country, I would rescue them all!

So nice to meet you!
