Thanks to Marie Ynami at mommycommunity.com I found some inspiration to share a Thanksgiving blog post.
Marie is sponsoring a meme this week on the things we are thankful for. Here are a few of mine, along with a great free e-book offered via Marie and some other useful links.
I am also thankful to my new twitter friend HomemakerBarbie who got me thinking about Thanksgiving earlier in the week when she tweeted about her request for Thanksgiving posts.
I am grateful for my loving husband who has been out of work about four months. Although I hope and pray he finds a good job again soon, I am thankful for all his help and support with the kids while he has been home. He has helped me keep my sanity these past few months by taking turns with diaper changes, bedtime routines, cleaning and more! Even when he does work 40+ hours a week he is just as supportive when he is home. I will miss all his help when he does return to work and I'm sure my sons will miss him being around as well. If only he could work from home.
I am also grateful for my sons health, my family's health, my own health during this difficult economic time, since we are without health insurance. I hope that we continue to remain overall healthy throughout the holidays and the coming new year.
I am also grateful for all the new friends and contacts I have made online via twitter. I have learned a lot and have gained friends I hope to meet some day, especially my new twitter friend Simone.
Here are other great links to help you through Thanksgiving and to show your thanks:
