Aloha Friday #57

November 20, 2008

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

Today’s question is:

What are you thankful for?

I have lots to be thankful for. But I guess what I’m most thankful for is that in this terrible economy where my two brothers-in-law were layed off from work recently, my DH still has a job that supports us so well that I can stay home with DD.
DH was teasing me that his brothers might have to come & live with us…ACK! His oldest brother has 6 kids living at home.

As generic of a response it is, I am thankful for my family. I would be nothing without the support of my parents and siblings.

As well, I am thankful that even though times are hard, we as American’s in our hardest of economic times are still exponentially wealthy compared to the majority of the world’s population.
