Everyone and their brother are giving thanks.
You see it every where. Facebook, twitter, your local cable guy. He probably is.

But what are people really doing to show thanks?
Well for one, blogging about it.
I guess I am joining the bandwagon.

I will tell you what I am thankful for: My Mom.

I am one of those people that has to talk to their moms even though we live 11.2 miles from each other.
I am a momma's girl.

My mom is literally the best. Sorry about your mom. She teaches college at SMU (a great university in Dallas), she has a master's degree, she raised 3 hellacious girls, and she can knit you a sweater. Just kidding. But if she wanted to she probably would figure it out. That's just the way she is.

She is my biggest fan. She pisses me off more than anyone, except for my husband. And she's always right. She will drop everything for you and not even think about asking for thanks.

The Summer of 2008, my mom and I were in London (she taught the study abroad program there and I was studying…kinda).

We were there for 2 weeks when we got a call: my sister had Leukemia. She was 14. She didn't panic. She just got it done.
For 2 and half year she was her caretaker. Through the chemo treatments, hair loss, month long stays in the hospital, and countless other incredibly scary things I thought my family would never go through, my mom was there.

So why am I writing about this today?
This is the 2 year anniversary of my sister beating cancer. And while I honor her and am so proud of all that she has been through, it is my mom who also went through it too.
She's the bravest person I know.
And I don't say it enough, but I am thankful for her each and every day.
