~Giving Thanks on this Special Day~

Although every day should be "thanksgiving," today is the official Holiday.  The reason I say that. is because I don't think we give enough praise to the things we have & are thankful for.  I'm guilty of it, I definitely take the "small stuff" for granted. 

I want to give a BIG thanks to my wonderful family!! Without them, I wouldn't have anything.  I don't say it often enough, but I truly am grateful for both of my parents & my siblings, including my nephew!!  They have always been there for me, even when I was a snotty teenager, trying to do the opposite of everything I had been taught.  Sorry, Mom! :) 

I am thankful for my dearest friends, the ones who are *always* there for me, when others have not been. You know who you are & I am grateful for you. I am thankful for my job, I know a lot of people are being laid off & some just don't have work.  I am grateful to have a secure, steady job & I know that I am appreciated there (more than I know if that makes sense..haha! I don't give myself enough credit for my work, I've been told)  I am thankful for the house I live in (thanks Mom & Dad, one day I will move out...again!), the shoes on my feet, the hair on my head, the warm clothes I have, my car that gets me to where I'm going, without a fit.  There are SO many more things that I am grateful for, if I listed them all, you'd be reading all day! 

Since this is my "HCG" site....I also need to give thanks to Hcg, without it I would still be unhappy & miserable in my own skin.  I am truly grateful for my Auntie Connie, who shared this little secret with us & for helping us in every way possible.  I am also thankful for my Hcg friends, I've met some wonderful people on the online postings &  they have always been there to help & reassure ANYONE who need its!  Thank you girls!! ANd guys!!! Without you, I probably wouldn't have made it this far!!! And for once in my life, I'm kind of excited to start another round in January! I really feel the VLCD helps you think about what you're putting into your mouth & I feel better doing it!! This next time I will definitely try even harder than I did on the first round!! I WILL be skinny!!! :)

Thank you again for reading my posts, sometimes they may bore...but I try to keep them funny & non-boring!! :) Have a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving, filled with Family, Friends, good (healthy) Food & Fun!! Be safe if you're traveling!!!
