A Few of My Favorite Things -

This Thanksgiving I feel extremely lucky and grateful.
Here's my Top 10 List of what I'm thankful for:

10. My job. It may not be the ideal job, but it pays the bills.
  9. My cozy little apartment - it's home.    
  8. My writing - it's therapeutic 
  7. The teachers at Norrin's school and all of his therapists.
  6. My friends - They make me laugh even when it's really hard to.

  5. My family - I have a great support system. 
  4. My Mom -  I would completely lost without her.  
  3. My husband - He is a phenomenal partner.  
  2. Norrin -- (my list within my list)
  • He's said "I love you" all on his own
  • he's pointing;
  • jumping;
  • clapping; 
  • singing;
  • reading;
  • dancing;
  • playing appropriately;
  • riding his bike;
  • he's almost fully potty trained!
  • he's asking questions
  • he says please and thank you
  • he's realizing that on Halloween you get candy, on Thanksgiving you eat turkey and for Christmas Santa comes and brings presents
  • he's building his imagination
  • He's cutting and coloring
  1. That I'm able to appreciate all the little things every single day.
