I'm always a bit sad when it is gone. It's such a long year until the next Thanksgiving and I love having a reason to reflect on those things for which I am thankful.
We had a quiet day of celebration with a grand total of 11 people (plus 1 in utero, so I could count that as 12) at our table. It was a wonderful day.
Here are some 'things' for which I am thankful.
Grandbaby number 5 and her/his mommy, Jamie Lee, the talented seamstress and teacher
Shoes by the door
My Donavyn, who can figure out how to open anything (I mean anything)
Donavyn and my baby playing cars
My Hayden (6 and in 1st grade)
My Miss Khloe (4 and in preschool)
My baby girl, Mommy and future college student
My baby's baby, My Gage
My baby boy, Mr. Mechanic, daddy of 1 and another that's getting ready to surprise us
Mr. Collin, daddy of 3, 4-wheelin' dude (trying not to be in the picture)
My honey (who recently, uhm, went dumpster diving when he accidently dropped in his glasses) - don't worry, he washed his hands a million times
Papa and his 'silly' hat
As you can see, I am thankful for quite a few things, er, people. I just have to remember to be thankful throughout the year, not just on the fourth Thursday of November.
Did you notice all of the 'my's? I claim relationship with these blessings in my life.
(Not pictured: So many people. Missed you! I claim you as 'my,' too.)
Happy Thanksgiving! I'd love to hear your thankful list.
