Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It’s a time of reflection and gratitude. A day centered around family. (And food. Definitely food.)
On this day I give thought to all I am thankful for- too much to be included here today. But at the top of my list, I’m thankful for my family, for their health and happiness. I’m thankful for the support of family, friends, and all of you.
One of the biggest things I am thankful for is being able to stay home and raise my sons. I’m thankful for my husband, who works so hard so that I can be home with them, and values what I do.
As I watch my little guys turn from babies into little boys (“big” boys if you ask them!) I remind myself that, even on the days I struggle most to maintain my sanity(!!!), these days are numbered. My five year old’s little hands are filling mine. My two year old is becoming more self-sufficient. I cherish the moments we have. I remind myself to breathe, to watch and listen. To soak it up. Seeing that baby face fall asleep on my chest every day at nap time, watching them play make-believe… these moments won’t last. I’m so thankful I’m here for all of it.
