Busy Busy Busy!

Life has been nuts the past few weeks. Getting into the swing of things with school and activities has been crazy. Kiana started voice lessons at the Alberta Conservatory of Music through Grant McEwan College last week. She has a natural ability and she LOVES to sing so I think we may have found her niche. But her ego has ALREADY become almost impossible to deal with - LOL!! She is convinced she will be the next Canadian Idol or something. She thinks she is DEFINITELY all that.

Fall has come and its only a little better than a week until Thanksgiving is here. So I have been thinking about all the wonderful things in my life.

I am thankful for a God who loves me no matter what stupid things I do.

I am thankful for a devoted and amazing husband.

I am thankful for autism - brought to me in the shape of my two beautiful angels

I am thankful for my friends - both at home and online - who have supported me, hugged me, cared for me and carried me especially in the last month.

I am thankful for the ability to be creative.

So, tell me, what are you thankful for?!

Things I am thankful for:

1. My family and the knowledge that we are healthy.

2. My scrapbooking hobby and online friends.

3. My job that allows me the money to survive and have 'leisure stuff too'.

4. That I am Canadian and have freedom.

5. My pets and the joy they bring to my life.

6. Good times and laughter!

Mine: I too am thankful for a Father in Heaven who knows me personally and loves me even on the days when I make people cry (oops...); I am thankful for where I am in life, and that I have come to know what I really want and desire and I am making a change now to make it all happen; and I am BEYOND thankful for my husband who is my best friend and who understands me and loves me and supports me and who gave me my two amazing kids!! Good things!!

Beautiful comments Mona! Congrats to Kiana to have found something to be passionate about!!!!

I have so much to be thankful for! For my busy life, for it means that I am alive and able. FOr my family and friends who support me, and help me to focus on what is important. FOr my faith, which though quiet is DEEP and it nurtures me.

Hugs to you!
