Thankful Post

I guess since it's Thanksgiving I feel obligated to do a "thankful post" today.  I have a very blessed life and I know it.  I am lucky to have the things that I have and even though I don't seem like it all the time I am very grateful for it.  Today was a great day with family.  My parents, my brother and I went to my grandparents house for lunch.  We had a delicious fried turkey, ham, green bean casserole, hashbrown casserole, broccoli and rice, slaw, and pecan and sweet potato pies.  My grandmother and mother are excellent cooks.  After lunch we lounged around and talked. Then my mother and I went to Wal-Mart, with everyone in Trumann, to rack up on some Black Friday (even though it's really Thursday) deals.  It was a great day.

Luckily I went through old facebook photos and found one from last Thanksgiving before I ate a third piece of pie.  I will not post it here, because my mother said "Ew, don't post that on Facebook," (thanks mom).  Even thought it's already on Facebook, it was a picture she put up.  I always knew I was overweight, I just didn't realize how bad it was.  That picture, that picture shows just how bad it was.

To end this lovely Thanksgiving night I will leave a list of things I am thankful for (in no order).

A God that loves me and forgives me no matter how bad a screw up.
My mother and father who love and support me always.
My brother who torments that mess out of me but will take up for me in a heartbeat.
