This year in particular, I'm thankful that my Dad and his wife invited me to share their Christmas vacation - we're going to Disney World!! And then I'm going to get to relax and visit with them and other friends and family up North - I'm trying to avoid thinking about how cold it's going to be.
I'm thankful that my Mom's dream has finally become a reality and that it has worked out the way she wanted (mostly). She's incredibly happy, for which I am incredibly thankful.
I'm thankful that I do not live in a country where:
"women are subject to numerous restrictions, including a strict dress code, a prohibition against driving and a requirement that they get a man's permission to travel or have surgery. Women are also not allowed to testify in court unless it is about a private matter that was not observed by a man, and they are not allowed to vote." CNN.com
I hope you have good things in your life to be thankful for and that you will have a great holiday weekend.
