Black Friday

Before Thanksgiving, I had only bought 4 Christmas gifts. I wasn’t one of those crazy people (like my mom & sisters) who got up at 2, 3, or 4 am to get so awesome deals… I slept in but got up at a decent time to get a few good deals. I started my shopping around 9am, which was plenty early for me. And, I’m happy to say I was actually very successful. I am finished with my mom, dad, stepdad, sisters, niece, nephews, brothers, and one friend. I still have to buy for the hubby’s side of the family…but I’m not too worried about it. I’m so proud of myself…I made a lot of progress in a very short amount of time.

So Thankful!

I love this time of the year…it really makes me stop and focus on all the blessings I have in my life. This year has been a year to remember…some good memories and some not so good… However, whatever I’m going through…no matter what…God has been there for me the whole time. I am so thankful for all the blessings in my life. I’m especially thankful for my wonderful hubby, great family, and sweet friends. I enjoy good health, have a good job, nice home, nice stuff, etc… This Thanksgiving has been about focusing on the blessings I have in my life rather than focusing on the few things that I don’t have in my life. I am so blessed!
