Katie Holmes Feels Blessed With Her Life

"With everything that's happened, I still feel the same. I'm really happy being a mom, being a wife, Holmes told PARADE. "I understand the curiosity. It's a reality for me, another dimension of awareness. I appreciate the man that I'm with and my family and my work. I feel very lucky to be able to say that."

Holmes and Tom Cruise were married in November 2006, seven months after the birth of their daughter, Suri.

PARADE Magazine recently interviewed Holmes and her "Mad Money" co-stars for an issue that will hit newsstands on Dec. 23.

"It was a blast. We got our morning female talk in the trailer every day," Holmes dished to PARADE.

The 26-year old revealed that Cruise understands and appreciates the importance of the female connection.

"My husband has three sisters. He was raised by a single mother and has two daughters and he's a great father and husband. His first two children are incredible, really smart and kind. They call me 'Mom,'" Holmes said. "So, Tom understands the female bond, 부여출장안마 and he loves it. He was so excited for me to do this movie. He loved hearing all the stories."

Besides having a soft side, Cruise has brought out a bit of the daredevil in Holmes by showing her a variety of new things.

"Oh, we have so much fun. Tom has introduced me to so many new experiences," Holmes gushed. "I have done things I never thought I would do, like climbing mountains and flying in the P-51 [a World War II fighter]. That's what is so inspiring about being with him - constant thrills and joy."

While working, jet setting and learning new things from Cruise, Suri is along for the ride.

"We don't like to be away from her. She's very aware," Holmes said. "We take her to the park in each city and walk around. This summer, when Tom was working in Germany, she'd wake up and say, 'Hello, Berlin.'"

Holmes and Cruise were thrilled to experience Suri's first Christmas with her last year. Holmes especially loves to celebrate the holidays, considering her birthday falls on Dec. 18 in the midst of the Christmas season.

The Holmes and the Cruise families plan to go to Telluride, Colo. for the holidays, where they ski, have big dinners, make cookies and laugh.

The now adventurous Holmes said that she is up for the challenges of leading a public life.

"We do a lot of things that I couldn't imagine doing when I was younger. And yet, at the same time, I always wanted to see the world. It is a big life, and it's exciting," Holmes said. "I learn from my husband, and I learn things about myself. I learn about things from my daughter. She teaches me a lot. Every day I do count my blessings."
