Are you guys all ready for Thanksgiving? I'm not. At all. Nor am I ready for my sweet boy's birthday, either....so, guess what I'll be doing today? Fighting the crowds for a big ol' sack of potatoes (my required dish to bring), and some canned chicken (buffalo chicken dip). Already stocked up on the "kid booze" (sparkling juice) so hopefully I'll grab a few gifts, get my groceries and be outta there.
This year is proving to be a bit hectic...Disney threw a wrench into all sorts of plans, but I wouldn't trade it for the world. I asked Belle, yesterday, what her favorite part was and you know what she said? "The quiet. And just having you all to myself."
Forget the rides, and the souvenirs, and the "dreams come true"...she just wanted me. I can't tell you how much that girl warms my heart.
Everyday I give thanks that God chose my husband as my lifelong soul mate. That He knew I needed a man strong in his faith to help me gain ground in my own faith. Thankful that He blessed me with 5 incredible, amazing, unique, and absolutely wonderful children to raise. They are my passion, my pride, my purpose in life. Thankful that He gave me my wild and crazy extended family. Thankful that He granted me the most amazing grandparents a girl could ever ask for. And thankful for a bounty of blessing beyond that, but that pale in comparison to my loved ones.
I am rich in love, that is for certain.
I wish you and your loved ones a wonderful Thanksgiving...and if you aren't celebrating, I still wish you a wonderful day of giving thanks for the blessings that surround you.
