Giving Thanks

One week from today is Thanksgiving.  One week!! I don’t know about you, but this year seems to have flown by much faster than years past.  And I don’t want to hear the time-worn phrase of ‘time flies by faster as you get older‘ – because I refuse to become old. At least not right now.  I’m having too much fun reliving my childhood through Princess Nagger to even think about getting old.

This is the time of year you start to think about all the things you’re thankful for – you know, so that when you gather ’round the dinner table next week you have your ‘list’ all ready to go (that is, if you do that sort of thing around the dinner table on Thanksgiving).  I, for one, have a lot to be thankful for, but here are my top three:

I’m thankful every day for my little Miracle Girl – just when I had pretty much resigned myself to never being able to have a baby, God surprised me (big time) with the arrival of Princess Nagger.

I’m thankful for all my awesome bloggy friends – you all have been there through thick and thin, and I appreciate your input and interaction greatly.

I’m thankful for hubby’s patience and willingness to be the main bread winner so I could stay home with Princess Nagger and start my own fun business, rather than return to the Corporate World.

What are you thankful for?

This Thankful was brought to you in part by Jen, who’s bloggy friendship is something I’m very thankful for, and who is also Sprite’s Keeper.  Stop by and check out the other Thankful Spinners – you’ll be glad you did…and you don’t have to thank me!

About Stacy (the Random Cool Chick)

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance and I chose to become a SAHM and WAHM - I love every minute of it. We added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension to our family. We have an eclectic mix of pets: dogs, cats, birds and fish. I love to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, I take on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. My favorite, of course, is making my own wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway. I blog about the joys of parenting, family, friends, life, love and anything else that strikes my fancy. I do enjoy doing reviews and giveaways for products I use, believe in and can stand behind.

  1. I am thankful for a lot of things. The thing I am most thankful for right now is that my business is going well. It doesn’t leave me much time for blogging but it still makes me happy.

  2. Oh, I’m grateful for so many things, but right now I’m grateful for Thanksgiving because it gives me an excuse to actually think about the good things in my life rather than dwelling on the not-so-good.

  3. I have so much to be thankful for too. One I didn’t mention on my blog was all the wonderful people I have met through blogging. Thank you for your comments and the smiles I get from them. I’m looking forward to lots more to come.

  5. That is beautiful. You have many blessing to be thankful for. I am thankful for my family, I love them so much. I don’t have to cook a huge meal this year, that is a blessing too!

  6. I enjoyed reading what you’re thankful for. Very similar to mine which will post in the morning.

    Every year seems to go faster to me.

  7. I am thankful for you too! I feel very blessed to be a part of this blogging community and you are one of the reasons for that! You’re linked and thanks for Spinning!
    (I still have to wait until I get home to read your site since my work computer can’t handle the awesomeness!)

  8. Hey Stacy, God has given you both a blessing with the birth of your child and I am so proud to see you getting a chance to stay home to raise her, my wife and I chose to do the same thing when our children were growing us, was it easy, nope not all the time but the experience was a blessing I am thankful for.

    I always enjoyed sharing things we are thankful for around the thanksgiving table also.
