Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday for two very big reasons. First, it hasn’t been commercialized the way so many other holidays have. And second, it really does remind so many of us that gratitude is so important.
Today I’m thankful for a lot of things. My son. His health. His happiness. His demeanor. His tender spirit. His laugh. His trust. His ability to love others.
I’m also so thankful for my family and friends that love me unconditionally and no matter what comes. You all are an incredible gift in my life, and I don’t tell you I’m thankful enough.
I’m also so thankful for all of you who come here everyday.
But the big things are only a small part of the reason I’m thankful this year. As I did last year, I’ve decided to show you some of the things I’m thankful for with photos that I took.
Then, I’ll be taking the Thanksgiving weekend off to be with family and friends, to do some shopping, and to just enjoy a weekend full of love. I wish the same to all of you.
You know what they say. Kids say the darndest things. As a parent, I am reminded of it daily. Like when Noah said, "If there was ever a monster under my bed, I would just grab it and squeeze the poop out of him until he left."
