An Illustrated List of Unconventional Thankfulness

I am not a person who can get sappy publicly. Trust me, I have nothing against sap, I just can't express it. It makes me squirm and fidget. Needless to say, I am extremely thankful for my family and our home and all the things I discuss with Heavenly Father. I love my family more than anything in the world and am beyond grateful for my life. I'll leave it at that. But there are other things I am thankful for, like:

Creative solutions.

Winning contests:
"Dear Lucky Reader, CONGRATULATIONS! Just in time for the Holidays, you have won a selection of Crabtree & Evelyn’s NEW Aromatherapy Distillations Relaxing body care collection... We hope you enjoy the Relaxing Floral Body Smoother, Relaxing Skin Softening Milk Bath, Relaxing Gentle Cram Body Wash , and Relaxing Soothing Body Lotion..."

Vacuums and mops.


Cats. Most of the time. This picture was not taken during one of those times.

Okay, I'll get as sappy as I can, if you insist:

I am thankful for pictures of my squishy, sweet baby by a great, talented friend.

Carpet picnics with these guys (heck, for that matter, I'm thankful for McDonalds):

And even this guy. He takes good care of me. Even if he did skin Elmo.
And I'm thankful for many more things, including all of you. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

I like the shelf there, too, but now my hallway is reeeeally empty.

Sarah Smiles said...

Oh I bet! Hmmmm...You need a bench or a skinny sofa table to put pictures on or something! But then again, you have a ginormous hallway now :) hehe.

Missy said...

I love this list. Not sappy at all! Happy Thanksgiving!
