I know today is the day after Thanksgiving, but that's okay. I hadn't decided to write a blog post yesterday, and I even if I had I wouldn't have had time to write it up anyhow. So therefore, it is coming today.
I have a lot to be thankful for this year. I have a wonderful, wonderful boyfriend who is there for me through thick and thin and does so much for me. It's hard to believe that it will be two and a half years together in January already. How the time flies!

I have a great family - a bunch of great siblings that get a long pretty well (for the most part ;-) ) and awesome parents who are supportive of everything I do.
I have been blessed with many friends, both ones that I have grown up with, and ones that I have met along the way.
I am a member of a parish that I feel a part of, and not one that I just attend for Mass. There is a great community there, and some pretty incredible people... the first of whom is Jesus ;-)
And last, but not least, I am very thankful for the gift I have been given of my extended family. I am lucky to have some pretty awesome cousins, aunts, uncles and the blessing of being given the gift of spending 21 years with all four of my grandparents. It's a gift that I know not everyone has, and the fact that I had that long and that we all live so close is something I am very grateful for.
This wasn't meant to be a comprehensive list (I could turn that into a book!) so I'll close by saying that there are so many people and things in my life that I am thankful for, and I am truly blessed for each and every one of them. Happy Thanksgiving!
