For my Tuesday Ten this week, I decided to ask my kids to share what they are thankful for. At first, I thought getting them to list ten each would be a stretch. I was pleasantly surprised when they came up with ten (and then some) quite easily. I was also impressed by the things they included. I knew already that they are not particularly materialistic kids. However, it was so wonderful to hear them affirm that they know what is really important in life! :-)

Happy Thanksgiving dear readers!! I am so thankful for you and all the support you have shown me and this blog over the past several months! I am taking a couple days this week to "unplug" and spend precious time with my family. I will have a new post for you on Friday to tell you about a very special Mother of All Meltdowns holiday promotion!!
