WWCS Topic of the Week

The Thursday upcoming is Thanksgiving in the U.S., so let's all - American and not alike! - just share a post with what it is we're thankful for. A wonderful thing to do any time of year, I thought it'd be a nice thing to share for this week with the group!

I'm so thankful for my life...my husband, my kids and my family! In a reflective moment today while watching the news about Queen Elizabeth & Prince Phillips Diamond Anniversary I realized I'm not going to have that. Hubby and I are still pretty much newly weds having just celebrated our 5th Anniversary (and not getting any younger), so we have to make every moment worth the life we have left together. I'm thankful for my kids and the promising lives they have ahead of them, I'm enjoying seeing them grow towards having families of their own. Remember middle son was engaged this summer...no pressure!
For those who know me well, know that my early years had been a struggle...being a basically a single mom making so many sacrifices for the sake of my kids.
When I met Hubby my life came full circle...
That's what I'm SO thankful for!!



Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!
