almost getting back to my "five pound window" for my weight
 helping hands in the kitchen
 my daughters conquering stage fright (one in particular)
 finally finishing my puzzle - and having my entire table back again!
 Christmas specials on TV
 maternal instincts that kick in when needed
 the number 2 and how perfect a fit it is for our family
*picture taken by my very talented friend Jackie*
 being stocked up on noodle soup, 7-Up and soda crackers (too late for this time around, but at least now I'm prepared for next time!)
 choosing to spread compliments & positivity to those around me rather than harbouring jealousy - a work in progress
 signs of hope, given to me by my Heavenly Father
"Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving."
