November is a big birthday month. Katrina (my sister-in-law) celebrated another wonderful year of life last Saturday. Misti and Traci celebrated another fabulous year yesterday. Next week will rock another spectacular year for Anna and Jen followed by our friends Nikki and Madchen. That's a lot of cake and of course I am extremely thankful for all of it. You see, all of those women are very important to me. They are my champions, my cheerleaders, my heroes. I am so thankful that they are present in my life. There is something special about every single one of those gals. November is a month dedicated to being thankful. Taking that one day out of the year to be thankful is what inspired my Thankful Friday entries. Most weeks it's pretty easy to find something to be thankful for. There were times early in the the Thankful Friday venture where I struggled to find things to be thankful for. I've found that the harder you look for the blessings in your life, the easier they are to see.
So this week, I am thankful for birthdays and beautiful strong women that I can call my friends. I am thankful for the (literally new) roof over our heads. And I am thankful for Trader Joe's caramel dipping sauce.
Happy Friday to all.
