Thankful

Wes's family has a nice tradition of going 'round the table on Thanksgiving and saying what they are thankful for. I love this idea. So this year, since we are doing Thanksgiving with just our little family, I thought I would post what I am most thankful for. I, of course, have much to be thankful for. But most of all, the thing that comes to mind repeatedly, is that I have a happy healthy Finn this Thanksgiving. Last year, and it's hard to even "go there," Finn was days away from having to be hospitalized and undergoing surgery. I didn't know that was going to happen. I just knew that he was starting to get very sick. (If you want to know the whole story, revisit November and December of last year in my archives. I won't be, however!) So this year we all may have a few sniffles, but Finn is a smiling, running, roaring, pretending, recovered little big boy. And I am most thankful that he is here to celebrate Thanksgiving with us this year. And for all the years to come. I love you, my little turkey!

At the end of each day, no matter the challenges, I always say a prayer of thanks for our healthy family. Glad this year the sniffles are the only thing to worry about!
