I Am Thankful

I love that Thanksgiving is Thursday. Thankful Thursday this year couldn’t have more meaning for us. No, we are not having a traditional Thanksgiving this year but we are creating memories that will last a lifetime.

I am thankful for my loving, thoughtful, crazy daughter. When she was asked what she was thankful for, she said her great grandpa. We haven’t seen him since the week before we moved to Texas. He recently moved to Oregon as well. It’s just amazing to me that she is thinking of him and realizes how important he is to our family. It brought tears to my eyes reading the paper she wrote about him at school and being able to share that with him. I am just elated that I helped create such a beautiful being.

I am also thankful for my amazing, handsome and so grown up boy! He is more thoughtful than he gives himself credit for. He cares when he doesn’t realize it and when it’s needed the most. He will sit and talk with me when I’m lonely and be there when I’m upset. He is the greatest combination of his dad and me with his quick temper and sarcasm. I could not imagine my life without my kids.

To be able to take this vacation right now, is a blessing. Going to Disney World is EXPENSIVE! Staying at a resort from Sunday-Sunday while spending everyday in between park hopping and spending money is something I only ever dreamed of as a kid. Now I am not only making that dream come true, we brought Mema with us too! I am so thankful that we are able to even do something like this.

Travis. Words could never express how much he means to me. He supports me in whatever choices I make. Like this vacation. He takes care of me when I am sick. No matter what, he is always there for me. We might bicker and get on each others nerves sometimes but at the end of the day we are always each others biggest fans. Besides my children, I have never loved anyone with all of me, like I love him. I am thankful that he is mine.

There is so much to be thankful for. I am most thankful for all of my family and friends, not just my immediate family. My aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents and relatives that we just proclaimed relatives. We may not see each other all that much but when we do, catching up and spending our time laughing, making new memories means the world to me.

Today we are spending the day in another of Walt Disney’s Parks here in Florida. We aren’t having a traditional meal or spending hours in the kitchen together. But we are going to be together. Laughing, riding rides, eating cotton candy and making memories that I know I will never forget!

Enjoy today. Be thankful for the little things and the big things in your life.

Happy Thanksgiving My Friends
