bless you

no...i did not just hear you sneeze! it is the jewish new year and whether you are jewish or not, if you are reading this blog, i want to say thank you! i am such a blessed person! while it may seem that i bitch a lot about everyday things and crying kids, i do honestly know that i am truly blessed. so tonight, on rosh hashannah, i am thankful for the following...
* a fantastic husband who loves me and our children
* a husband who does the dishes (even after a long day at work!)
* a husband who does laundry
* a husband who i know (or at least i think i know) would do anything for me
* 2 amazing children
* andrew - our incredibly smart and talented almost 4 year old son
* andrew - who makes me laugh at least 10 times a day
* andrew -who makes me thankful for laughter and sweet innocence
* jacob -our smiley and giggly almost 4 month old
* my mom and dad who are such fantastic parents & grandparents
* my sister and her family who now live closer :)
* my husband's family for accepting me into the family almost 7 years ago now!!!
* my amazing "mommy friends"...you know who you are :) life just wouldn't be the same without you!
* the money i earn to help support our family
* a flexible job
* a beautiful home
* food on the table at every meal...and snacks in between
* kornfeld girls weekend...staci, lisa and judy - i love you!

ok...honestly...there are SO many more things, and this is just the beginning of what could be a very long list...but alas, i must go to bed! please, before you do anything else, think of at least one thing to be thankful for today...and if it's a person, let them know how much you appreciate and love them.
remember..."the happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the best of everything they have."
happy new year to all my jewish peeps and good night to all!

Bless you too Amy! What a great post!
I love you tons and I'm so blessed to have such an incredible family. I am reminded of this more often than I care to be, based on other's misfortunes and tough situations. It's truly amazing to be a part of such an incredible family. Thank you all!

Ha! I should be thanking YOU for putting up with my brother for nearly SEVEN YEARS!

In all seriousness though, I truly could not ask for a better sister-in-law! I know I don't tell you enough how fortunate I feel to have you in my life!

lots of love!
