Yeah, I know it’s almost noon and everybody’s already snuck in their bloghopping for the day, but I’m a little emotional today and kept shying away from the computer lest I sob all over y’all.
The list of things I have to be thankful for would surpass even the most hardy bandwidth, but I am give the most profound thanks for the fact my husband will be sitting down to dinner with us. There were so many small and random moments during those eight insane and scary September days when that could have changed. My children and I could so easily be facing our first holiday without the center of our world. Instead, thanks to modern medicine, determination and—I have NO doubt—to the many prayers and good thoughts you all sent our way, our Thanksgiving is a joyous occasion.
And in some weird way, I’m thankful we faced that crisis together, because when everything in our lives—business, children, everything—had been placed in the hands of others we trust and it was just my husband and I, alone in a hospital room with beeping machines, I found out that I do still want to spend every day of the rest of my life with him. A fifteen year emotional gut check, if you will. And even though we’ve slid easily back into the routine of the first fifteen years, I hold that moment of realization very close to my heart every single day.
Oh! It’s almost time for Santa in the parade! brb…
It’s officially CHRISTMASTIME!!! :boogie:
Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!
