Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. When I was a little girl, it was all about Christmas and Easter because of the gifts and fun activities, but as I've grown older and the focus on gifts has faded, it's the warmth and love surrounding Thanksgiving that draws me in. So, in celebration of my favorite holiday, I've decided to expand it from one day to an entire week - woo hoo! Each day this week I'm going to tell you something I'm grateful for and why. And then, at the end of the week, it's right into the downward slide to Christmas, New Year's Eve, and Hello 2011. (Maybe that's another reason Christmas isn't my favorite holiday anymore...it goes by WAY too quickly.)
Today I am grateful for my friends. I have been blessed with friendships that sustain and nurture me, without judgment. Friends at work. Friends in the Junior League. A friend from my work as a CASA. A friend from college. All of them listen to me and let me know that they're here for me no matter what. It is such a wonderful thing to know that you've got that kind of support in your corner.
