I am thankful
The long Thanksgiving weekend has now come to an end. Royce has been off since Wednesday and we had a wonderful Holiday. We went to my Parents for Thanksgiving on Wednesday night and then went to Royce's Grandmother's house on Thanksgiving day where all of his extended family gather each year. Being around all of our family is such a beautiful reminder of how much we are loved and cared for and also how much family is out there that we love and care for. The girls enjoyed being around the other kids especially.
Since this was the girls first Thanksgiving we decided to start a couple simple traditions. The first is to verbalize all of the things we're thankful for in the past year (Thanks..). The second is to bless someone else each holiday (..giving).
We don't need Thanksgiving to come for us to look in our hearts and remind ourselves that we shouldn't take anything for granted.
My wish for my family is gratefulness for what we have, hope for what we don't and many blessings given this season.

I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers.
