Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

This year, I have so much to be thankful for. It would be silly of me to try and even list it all out, but most importantly, this year, I am so thankful for meeting my son! Truly, it is weird to think I was ever without him!

One thing that did strike a chord with me only just a few weeks ago...
One of my sisters and I were at business lunch with a figure in our community. We were chit-chatting in general about things in life and the lady we were lunching with said "So it sounds like you two are part of a very close-knit family" and we both responded with a 'yes'. My sister then added that we are very close, but all so very different. And she couldn't be more right. But that is what makes it so great. We can be our own person, and still be accepted. And for that, I am ever grateful.

I love the post and especially the part where you spoke how close you and your sister are. My oldest sister and I have that relationship and so did my girls. I'm a little teary eyed that I'm so far away from her and my daughter on today, but thankful I can still feel the love in my heart.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, XOXO
