As this is often a time to reflect, I decided to see my post from Thanksgiving Last Year.
And then I saw this one from exactly one year ago.
I am so thankful for what the past has done for me. For what the present brings in its joys both big and small.
In these times when everything is so fragile, so worrisome...it is good to look at those snapshots of the past and remember what is the most important to you.
Last night, Michael brought home a hand turkey he made at school. He had written that he was thankful for his sister Willow and his cat Gabby. That meant the most to me than anything else he could have done.
(And, I got a sneak--he had written a note/card to a girl he is smitten with--saying "I am thankful for you being alive"). Okay, he is sooo getting a squishy hug!!
I have pjs and an outfit for Willow that says "Baby's 1st Thanksgiving" and I will post pictures later...I realize that last time I had a Baby's 1st Thanksgiving, I think I took it for granted. Who knew it would take almost 10 more years before I would have another!?!
For those who have their little ones for their first Thanksgiving--Have a memorable one! For those who are pregnant--enjoy that food! And for those still in the trenches--I wish you the hope of Thanksgivings to come.
And now, for something completely different...
