Happiest Thanksgiving to you!

   I know it's a tad early, but I will be out of town for Thanksgiving. My mom and I are driving to Missouri to celebrate the feast with friends of our family. We get to spend time on the farm, eat, drink, and be merry.

  As I like to do every year, I wish to make a list of things that I am thankful for this year.
   *I am thankful for my family, they are always there to support me in anything I do. They are the best!

   * I am thankful for my friends- (Edgar)- they are always there for me when I am in need.

   * I am thankful to have a new sister-in-law. I have never had a sister before so this is a good change in life.

  * I am thankful for a wonderful boyfriend. He and I have been through a lot over the years and I couldn't be happier to be with him!

  * I am thankful for the job of my dreams. I am doing exactly what I dreamed I would be doing. I am fortunate to have my talent with kids. The kiddies make me want to go to work everyday.

  * I am thankful for my health. I do monitor it and try to make the right choices. So far, I am doing a good job.

 * I am thankful to be me. I love who I am and who I have become as a person. I certainly look forward to the person I will be in ten years. (Stay tuned!)

 Now, it's your turn, what are you thankful for? Think deeply this year.  Are you thankful for the person who serves you coffee in the morning? The person who you let you merge into traffic when you are running late? The person who puts a smile on your face? The book that you simply cannot put down? The movie you can watch over and over again and still laugh/cry?

 Remember one little piece of advice: Smiles are contagious. I encourage you as the holidays are upon us, to make eye contact with somebody and give them the most sincere smile you can. Watch their response.  9/10 times, that person will return the gesture. (Pay it forward???)

Have a good week. Enjoy the holiday feast. Happy Thanksgiving!
