I was recently contacted by a fellow blogger and asked to help spread awareness about a health battle that she has faced.  Each November, the anniversary of her diagnosis, she works on 30 days of gratefulness and this year, has taken it to blogland asking bloggers to share something they are thankful for and then to help spread the word about Mesothelioma, something the was diagnosed with just three months after the birth of her daughter.  Heather was given a short time frame to live but she has outlived that date by years.  You can read her complete store HERE.

So, what am I thankful for?  I was going to try to be really creative and come up some unique idea but in the end there really is only one thing that I am 100% truly thankful for and that is my family.  I'm thankful for my husband and his great sense of humor, is caring heart, and his ability to keep me grounded (in other words, to talk me off the ledge since I am just a bit high strung sometimes HA).  I'm thankful for Joshua who is quirky and fun; is creative but loves to be in charge and can make me laugh like none other which is pretty amazing considering he is five.  I'm thankful for Nathan who has an imagination the size of New York, who tells me I'm his best buddy and is so tender!  

Thank you Heather for asking me to Share your Story and to take just a moment and remember what is truly important!
