Giving Thanks

Since losing baby Tadem I have become a bit more introspective than I already am. I decided to start this blog today on a complete whim to remind myself every evening of the simple pleasures and blessings in life!  It is my "high tech" way of journaling and also being able to share it with those I love!  We just celebrated our first Thanksgiving as a family of 4! It was a ton of fun with the family over and friends stopping by. We also managed with a wee bit of oven trouble to get a mouth watering turkey!  Today, I am giving thanks for a beautiful cool day that allowed the boys to play outside virtually all day together. It brings me such joy to see their beautiful smiles!  As sad as this past month has been, I realized sitting in the sunshine today and listening to the squeals, that we are so very, very blessed this holiday season!  What are you thankful for?

Just keep the faith kids and always appreciate the little things we so often take for granted. Glad you are doing a little better. Now if you could just get your father to quit trying to kill me. :-)
