Thankful Thursday

I am so excited to be linking up with two of my favorite bloggers, Jamie and Julia, for "Thankful Thursdays" for the first time today.



I am thankful for the opportunity to spend my 3 year anniversary with my husband in the Dominican Republic. We look forward to total relaxation and rejuvenation. This trip is just what we need! I am thankful for my beautiful parents, who are finally coming home this weekend after being away for three months. I'm an only child; so, this has been hard to have my parents and grandfather so far away. I am thankful for all of my beautiful, wonderful blog followers. You guys let me discuss my personal issues, you give feedback on things and you can always bring a smile to my face!

I truly feel that I have so many things to be thankful for. I lead a blessed life and although at times, it may seem hard, it's always blessed. I am thankful for this link up right now because it makes you stop and think about all of the little things that make a difference.

What are you thankful for? Link up and tell us!

Love it! You're right...it is so easy to get caught up in "life" that we forget to stop and think about all that we have been blessed with!

I am sure it will be so nice to have your parents and Grandpa back home!

Ugh that must have been so hard to have your parents gone for that long! I hate when mine go on vacation. I guess that's why they says us only children are spoiled!
