No, I don't mean "the help." I actually don't even have a housekeeper. To be honest, I cannot get my house clean enough to hire a housekeeper!
What I mean is help from family and friends. I am a very independent person, but even I need help. I am thankful for my parents who pick up my dogs when I have to work late. I am thankful for my family for helping whenever I need it. I have two brothers and two sister in laws. My aunt and uncle live next door to my parents. I am close with my cousins! I am lucky we all live within a few towns of each other. We are even close with second cousins who live a bit further away. Christmas Eve is a favorite tradition where we are all together at my parents' house. I feel very lucky to have a supportive, kind, helpful, family.
I am thankful for the help I get from friends. We all know friends are the family you choose. I am thankful for my blog friends and our support circle.
