Happy Thanksgiving & Thankful Thursday

Wishing everyone a very Happy & healthy Thanksgiving filled with the love or family & friends!!  On Thanksgiving & leading up to the day we talk about what we are Thankful for as a family, I think it is a great family tradition!  Have you tried this?!  If you have young children like I do, their list can be heartfelt & funny at the same time…depending on what they have to say!

Sophie’s List:  Sophie is almost 22 months & not talking a lot so…  Sophie is Thankful for her family, her friends, play time with her big sister, bagels, milk, IPads, DVDs in the car & everything else that makes her such a happy 22 month old!

Ava’s List:  Ava is Thankful for “Thanksgiving, family, friends, people & that is it!”  Word for word from Ava…

Pete’s List:  Pete is Thankful for family, friends & good health!

Here is what I’m Thankful for on this Thanksgiving Thankful Thursday…

  • I’m Thankful for my husband, his love, his support, his humor & his comfort!
  • I’m Thankful for Ava, my 1st born & the baby that made me a Mother!  Her unconditional love, her love for her little sister, her smile, her excitement in every day & her cheering me on at crossfit while Mommy sets a healthy example!
  • I’m Thankful for Sophie, my baby!  Her unconditional love, cuddles, hugs & kisses!!  Her wonder at new things, her look of pride when mastering a new skill, the love she has for her big sister!
  • I’m Thankful for the health of my family!  May we all continue to be healthy!
  • I’m Thankful for our extended family , their love & support!
  • I’m Thankful for my friends!  Always there with love, support, a shoulder to cry on, a glass of wine & a laugh!
  • I’m Thankful that after a long year that really started in January when we tried for the IVF round, cancer & surgery in April, recovery through June…I’m FINALLY feeling like ME again!  Except I’m feeling like a better version of myself because of a commitment to my health with healthy eating & crossfit!
  • I’m Thankful for easy access to fresh, quality, healthy & clean food/ingredients to nourish myself & my family!
  • I’m Thankful for No Risk Crossfit , the coaches, friends I’ve made, nutrition classes & workouts!  This has been the biggest contributor to my improved mental, physical & even emotional well being!

Apparently I am a little more detailed than the rest of my family or maybe I’m just wordy…either way…
