Giving Thanks

"Thanksgiving Day comes, by statute, once a year; to the honest man it comes as frequently as the heart of gratitude will allow." ~Edward Sandford Martin

Earlier this month on Facebook, I started writing about the things that I was thankful for each day.  In honor of Thanksgiving, I would like to share them with you.

I am thankful for my husband.  He is my best friend.  A loving husband and a wonderful father and provider.  His playful sense of humor brightens each day.

I am thankful for my children.  I love them so much.  Life with 4 kids is often chaotic, but I couldn't imagine living any other way.  My childrens' smiles, hugs and kisses are all the pay this stay-at-home mom needs.

I am thankful for my in-laws, Hubby's parents and siblings.  Not only did I marry an amazing man, I married into an incredible family.

I am thankful for my friends and family.  My life is richer for knowing them.

I am thankful for the internet.  It has allowed me to stay in touch with the family and friends that I left in the States. 

I am thankful for Facebook, because I have been able to find "lost" family members and re-connect with old friends.   

I am thankful for my health and the health of my family. (Especially this year!)  I have yet to experience any serious problems with  my allergies and asthma. 

I am thankful that we have a roof over our head, clothes on our backs and food on the table.

And I am thankful for my blogs.  I have made many new friends and hope to make many more.

I hope you all had a Happy Thankgiving!

With Love,
Leslie Limon


  1. May your healthy attitude be your companion for you and your family for a long time!

    God Bless you and and your family!

  2. Thank you for writing this. Yesterday, Thanksgiving came and went and all I could think about were the thing in my life that stressed me out. After two days home with my daughter, I felt like I needed a break, and it is inspiring to hear a stay-at-home mom of 4 to continue to cherish her time with them. I really need to step back sometimes and be grateful for what I have. Thank you for making me realize that :)

  3. Tancho: Thank you! Many blessing to you and your family.

    Jen: Your welcome.

  4. I really enjoyed your website! Your blog is wonderful reading. Have you heard of Danny the Dragon? One of my favorites, and worth a visit as it is the nominee for Best Children’s Picture Book of 2009!
