Today did not start out how I would have liked-but-it doesn’t really matter. At the end of the day, when all is said and done, no matter what happens in between when we roll out of bed and when our head hits the pillow at night-if I have breath in my body-I can be thankful.

Today I am thankful for my family. My crazy, strange, quirky, unpredictable family. The life we have made is not like anything I could ever have imagined. Sometimes we yell at each other. Sometimes we are angry. Sometimes we say things we shouldn’t. Sometimes we cannot be in the same room together. But then other times we are kind and compassionate. We think about one another’s needs. We help one another. We have family time. But then still there are the times in between when we are all here-existing- in the every day. I am so thankful I get to be a part of that. Even though Kenny worked today-it’s ok-it comes with the lifestyle-we still got to see him-and even if we didn’t-that would have been ok too. I am thankful he doesn’t have to work every Thanksgiving.

I am thankful to God for giving me my family. They may drive me bananas sometimes-but boy are they a gift!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
