It's that time of year -- a time to mention what we are thankful for.

Michelle Kemper Brownlow: Some people keep a gratitude journal and some people make lists or send notes. I'm a mom of three; I don't even have time to find a pen ... so I tell anyone who will listen. Of course, while out and about, I run the risk of being dubbed, "that woman who talks to herself in Wal-Mart" but if I don't put it out there, it will be forgotten by the next diaper change.

Once you are a mom, your "Thankful List" changes drastically. Health and happiness falls by the wayside ... we focus on the little things.

The following is THIS mom's 2009 Thankful List.

I'm thankful...
• the bus was on time and no one was home sick
• no one has to know I crawled back into bed before the bus left the curb
• no child called 10 minutes later asking me to bring an instrument/lunch/homework to school
• that my socks only hit three sticky spots on the kitchen floor as I slugged to the coffee pot
• that the dog likes to lick the sticky spots
• for that one reserve pair of underwear at the bottom of the drawer on laundry day
• I went six whole hours with no bodily fluids on my person
• I actually had a shower when the UPS guy rang the doorbell
• the greeter at Wal-Mart told me my shirt was on backwards BEFORE I ran into the PTA president
• when I changed my shirt around, the restroom didn't smell like (insert gross smell)
• when I sneezed in the shampoo aisle and peed a little, I was wearing a pad
• I have all of this and more to look forward to tomorrow ... sigh ...
