It makes me feel like I'm not missing that much even though I really am.

Day 21: I'm thankful for the unexpected perks at my work, leaving early today!! Ready to get this holiday weekend started!!
Oh so you realized I didn't complete Day 22 yet! Well for good reason, Day 22 is tomorrow silly! However I feel I can complete my 22 Days of Thanks this evening!
Day 22: I'm so incredibly thankful for my amazing husband, my loving family and the greatest friends a girl could ask for. I think my Day 14 sums up Eric, he never leaves my side even on my worst days and never loses hope for our future. My Day 1 sums up my family, it just keeps growing which means even more love that you never knew your heart was capable of until it happens. I'm so grateful to have the most amazing parents in the world. They would go to the ends of the earth and back for us kids and the word no isn't a part of their vocabulary. While we don't get together with our friends as much as I would like to, the time we do spend with them is always memorable. I'm the luckiest girl in the world to have them in my life and we've shared in so many life changing events this year, moments I will remember forever!
So while you're with your family and friends tomorrow for Thanksgiving, remember all the blessings you have in your life. It's very easy to forget all the little things that really make your life the adventure it's meant to be!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!
