Today is Thanksgiving. I am spending it in the woods, with my children and my family. We will be having ham and mashed potatoes, green bean casserole (ew), corn, homemade rolls, and Oreo salad (the best dessert ever).
Today, I am grateful for my kids. I am grateful that they are healthy, smart and funny, and that I get to spend so much time with them.
Today, I am grateful for my family. They spoil my kids and help us out when we need it.
Today, I am grateful for my cat, even though she is super grumpy and hates to cuddle. Every now and then, she will come and sit with me.
Today, I am grateful for the opportunity to go back to school and finally get the degree I wanted twelve years ago. It’s definitely difficult to go to school, work and be a single mom, but it’s worth it.
Today, I am grateful to be single. I love being alone (with my kids and my cat). I’ve learned so much about myself over the past two years. I love the freedom I have, and I don’t have to rely on someone for my happiness. I will be happily single for the rest of my life.
Today, there are so many things to be grateful for.
