So Thankful

Tomorrow is November 25. Thanksgiving. I am thankful for so much. I have a wonderful husband and son as well as a great extended family. We are all happy and healthy and I feel so lucky to be surrounded with so many loving people.

These days, a great job can be hard to come by. I am so thankful to have a job I absolutely love and that I work with such a great group of ladies. I am so lucky to be a part of new families every time I go to work. I am also thankful for Brian’s job. I know I talk about how much he is gone, but in the big picture, he has a job he also loves, is challenged by, and he makes a great living. And I know the long absences are almost done!!

Then there’s Adam. I can’t even put into words how thankful I am for that little boy. Sure, he has his days when I just can’t deal with him anymore, but overall he such a fantastic child. He makes me laugh every day and I am amazed at how smart he is. He is such a sweetheart. My favorite is when he gives me the biggest hug he can by wrapping his arms and legs around me and squeezing me so tight that he shakes. Then he tops it off with, “I sure love you!”

And speaking of Adam, Thanksgiving is also his 3rd birthday! I can’t believe how fast time has flown by. He’s doing really great with potty training now. He’s pretty much all trained during the day and just wears a pull up for nap and bedtime. He is so proud of himself!!

I am working all weekend. I work a day shift on Thanksgiving, then I’ll join the huge family gathering at Dora & Fred’s. They are cooking up a delicious feast!! We’re bringing over a dinosaur birthday cake and party hats to have a little birthday celebration as well. It’s shaping up to be a busy, but fun weekend!

Oh, and to top it off, Brian got home tonight and will be here until December 3rd! That’s 9 days for him at home! I am also thankful for that!!

From our family to yours: Have a happy Thanksgiving!! Travel safely and stay warm!!
