Sandie Simply Says

I’m thankful for…

Filed under: Spin — by Sandie @ 8:05 pm

This weeks Spin Cycle (brought to you by is all about what we’re thankful for. I must admit, I wasn’t surprised. I mean this IS the week of my birthday and we’re always thankful for that! What? That’s not the most important holiday this week? What do you mean you didn’t even know it was my birthday? What is this Thanksgiving you speak of? I thought everyone was celebrating MY birthday all these years! Hmpf!

OK, OK, so I know all about Thanksgiving. And posts like this always make me think of the TV sitcoms where they sit around and discuss what they’re thankful for. Everyone has something sappy to say with the gratuitous joke thrown in for good measure. Which actually gives me a topic for another day.

So, what AM I thankful for? Let’s see…

I’m thankful for my children.
I’m thankful that we’re all healthy.
I’m thankful that I’m employed with a fairly recession-proof job.
I’m thankful that I have a roof over my head with no immediate danger of losing it.
I’m thankful I don’t have to wonder where my next meal is coming from, that my cupboards and refrigerator are full.
I’m thankful my parents were able to make the trip down to see us AND that they are in good health.

And most of all this year, I’m thankful my husband will be home in time for Thanksgiving. I’m grateful that we’ve been lucky enough to spend every major holiday together since we’ve been married. So many military families can’t say the same.

And along those lines, I’m thankful for those who are away from home right now, protecting our freedoms all over the world. God bless them and bring them home safe.



  1. Wonderful Spin, Sandie! Happy birthday, by the way! I’m certain your husband will come home to you safely in time for the turkey, but I’m throwing a couple of extra prayers in this week for you.
