It’s Thanksgiving so I thought I’d write a little about being thankful….

As you all might be aware we decided to do something different this year for Thanksgiving.  Something fresh and new.  Something we’ve never done before.  We ended up going out for Chinese food.  A great idea in theory…. and if you talk about the company alone it was most certainly a great idea, but the food… not so great.  We cannot recommend House of Louie.  However… I am thankful we got to spend the meal with great friends who we love very much.  Afterward we headed to Maggie’s place to meet her dad and step mom and say hello to her dinner guests.  We enjoyed a cup of hot chocolate while we were there.  I’m thankful for the graciousness and love Maggie always shows us when we go to her place and for the sincere love we both felt from the other people present.  It touches my heart to know how many people have been thinking of me/us these past months.  I’m deeply humbled by their genuine outpouring of emotion.

I talked to Mom this morning, she called to say a big happy Thanksgiving to us.  I’m grateful and thankful I have the amazing mother I do.  Mom, you are the best… hands down.  I’ve been lucky to realize, all along, what a gift I have in you, and that feeling of love, gratitude and thankfulness for having you in my life just gets stronger with each passing year.  I love you.

I’m also thankful for the family and friends near and far I didn’t get to see today, but felt none the less.  You all mean so much to me.  I can’t express how blessed I feel to have you all in my life.  We might not see each other that often or as much as we would like, but I value having you in my life… so very much.

I’m so thankful and grateful I ended up with a great step daughter and son in law who I love very very much. They have given us the most wonderful gift this year… a new grandson.  I can’t wait to meet him.

And most importantly… my honey.  How can I not talk about her, but what do I say?  Every day I wonder in awe at the amazing luck I had in finding you.  I don’t know what I did to get you in my life, but I am thankful for it every day.  I know I can be moody and difficult sometimes… can’t we all…. but I look at you and get that feeling inside, the complete sense of joy when you are doing something so cute, and I forget I’m moody.  I stop being difficult.  I’ve never felt joy like this, like the kind you’ve brought to my life, my heart.  I am more than thankful for you honey.  I am blessed to have you.  I am awed by you… and I am grateful, to the bones, for you.  You make me so happy.  Our life makes me so happy.  So thankful.

I feel so lucky, so thankful, so happy.  It’s amazing.  This is, as I’ve said… such a beautiful life.  Happy Thanksgiving everyone…
