November is a month to reflect on all my blessings.  Today is my birthday, don't ask which one, please!  And I'm grateful for another year of life to enjoy my wonderful family--husband, children, grandchildren ( yes I now have 2 beautiful grandsons!), my parents (both are still alive, how blessed am I), sisters, neices and nephews and incredible friends.  It is also the month of Veterans day when we remember so much that has been sacrificed by our progenitors to provide us with this wonderful land of liberty and opportunity--how grateful I am for their courage and willingness to serve their fellow countrymen, and even die if necessary to preserve our precious freedoms.  My mother in law and husband, and a neice also have birthdays this month--I love and am grateful for each one of them.  At the top of the list goes my husband--a more trustworthy, honorable and loving man you won't find anywhere.  He also happens to be alot of fun to be around--just ask his children and grandchildren if you don't believe me!  Last but not least, this is the month we Americans celebrate Thanksgiving and reflect on those hardy, first European immigrants who came here for religious freedom and opportunity, and to reflect on the blessings in our lives.  It would take pages to count my blessings, so i've just hit a few highlights that especially come to mind today.  Make your own list--it will make you feel better, more hopeful, and realign your perspective if it needs a little adjusting.
