It's been a rough week over here. Wesley hasn't been feeling well which means no one in the house is getting any sleep. Now I've picked up whatever Wesley had and I am miserable. But it is Thanksgiving tomorrow and it's nothing that four helpings of stuffing and pie can't fix.
I love Thanksgiving! It has always been one of my favorite holidays. It isn't just because of all the food and sleep I usually get on the day. Growing up Thanksgiving was a household favorite. My sister and I would wake up early to get into position on the couch to watch the Macy's Day Parade while the fire kept us warm and we could hear my mom working on pies and the turkey in the kitchen. It's just such a comforting holiday. I can remember some not so pleasant Christmas' in my day but every memory I have of Thanksgiving is so full of love, family and comfort. I hope to always bring that kind of spirit to our holidays as we raise Wesley.
So we are going to do our best to get better over here so that Thanksgiving can live up to all it's awesomeness.
I was going to end this post with a list of things I am grateful for but decided not to because one, I'm sure everyone is bored to death with those kinds of lists already. And two, because honestly there is too much to be grateful for. I know recenlty I've sounded whinny and pathetic. There are always plenty of things to complain about no matter how awesome life is, but more then that there are things to be grateful for. There are days when I am overwhelmed with just how blessed I feel to be where I am today and with whom. So I'll leave it at that and wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving!
