Thankful Thursday

Last week I had a brutal migraine, and couldn't post on Thursday. This week, I'm glad to be back on track. This is my favourite post of the week, because it really gets me to think about the great things in my life.

Today I'm thankful for my family, and the fact that we're so close. Yesterday my parents left for a South American cruise, and the house is very, very quiet without them. If I feel lonely without them today, how will I handle the next 3 weeks? It's not necessarily loneliness . . . just noticing how quiet and still the house is without other people moving around. Thankfully the dogs make up for some of that silence . . .

I have heard of so many people that don't have close relationships with their parents, and I always feel sorry for them. My mom and I are especially close, but even my dad and I have a good relationship. I know that I can talk to them about almost anything, and they'll provide a good perspective for me. I know that they love me and care about me, and will support me through anything. And I know how lucky that makes me.

Take some time to think about what you're thankful for today . . .

I love reading this post each week! I love that my Mom is so close as well. I couldn't be one of those people who moves 3000 miles away from any family at all. Hopefully you aren't to lonely while they are gone.
