Blogger Hop

It's the HOP! Hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-For-Books! It's similar to the Friday Follow where we visit blogs we know and blogs we don't. I look forward to it every week!
This week's question:
In celebration of Thanksgiving, let's share what we're thankful for...

This is a great idea. Thanksgiving for me was in October (Canadian that I am) and we had most of the family over to our house for dinner. I'm lucky because the husband is a fabulous cook.
We usually have the entire family over, but my mom was unable to attend this year as she's in the middle of chemo treatments and she's really not up to doing very much. I missed her terribly at our dinner.
Things I'm Thankful for:
My husband, my incredible son and our beautiful home. My mom and our wonderful relationship. I'm thankful that her cancer is treatable and that she'll be at our thanksgiving dinner next year.
I'm thankful that I have a job that I love (most of the time), and friends to laugh, cry and share with. I'm thankful for books, and movies. For coffee and dark chocolate. I'm thankful that my 9 year old son still likes to hold my hand-even in public.I also thankful that I have so many things to be thankful for :)

  10. Thanksgiving is my holiday. My oldest son's birthday is right at this time so it was understood that this would be my holiday to cook and have everyone over. We usually have the traditional Thanksgiving meal. I cook the dressing that my Mom taught me how to make. I love this time of year. I'm off from work almost the whole week. Love it!!
