30 Days of Thanks





Along with many others, I decided to post something that I am thankful for each day in November.  Most people call it 30 Days of Thanks.  I decided to compile all of my posts in a list and then blog it here.

Thankful Day 23 : I am thankful for Facebook. It has enabled me to reconnect with so many old friends, many of whom I am now VERY close with.

e my home. I am thankful that his wonderful parents have so openly welcomed me and my children and family into their lives with open arms.
