What I'm Thankful For This Year

Mommy Mylene of Online Mommy's Corner is hosting a Thanksgiving Contest where I offered to be a sponsor, and I thought I should join too, for the fun of it (and the prizes, which goes without saying. Hee hee). Anyways, a contest requirement is to blog about the things that I am thankful for this year. Now that 2009 is almost over, I think it's about time to do that. This year has been full of ups and downs, but it doesn't do me any good to dwell on the bad so I'll just count my blessings instead. I've met really great friends this year online and offline, and I think that's my biggest blessing this 2009. I know I've made more friends this year than the last, so that's something to be thankful for. My nephew Elijah Alezekiel was born September 1 this year, and he is such an adorable piglet my week is not complete without several visits to their house.

Sati, my inaanak, was also born this year, so there's another miracle to be thankful for. Svetlana's been rarely sick this year (there was only one time when she had a fever due to cough and cold), and I'm extremely grateful for that. Paulie has made a step towards being less of a war freak lately (traces of his fraternity days, something which I always complain about him and has been a source of bickering last year), and I'm thankful for that as well. I was also blessed with more writing and VA opportunities, which means more stability, financial-wise, for my family. This has been a good year for us, overall, and I hope that next year will be better, not only for my family but for everyone as well.

So that's me. How about you? What are you thankful for this year? I invite you to join Mommy Mylene's first ever blog contest to have a chance to grab these prizes from these sponsors:
