Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on the things we are grateful for. I have so much – I am grateful for my two beautiful kids and my steadfast husband. I am grateful for our two old dogs and our sweet and sassy kitty. I am grateful for our house, our jobs, the ability to feed our children and drive them to school and give them niceties. I am grateful for my strength and health – it would be a whole different ballgame if I were not made of steel. I am grateful that, right this very minute, Gracie is relatively healthy. I am grateful that we are able to spend the holiday with the kids’ favorite Auntie and grandparents. I am grateful that we didn’t end up in the hospital fighting an infection during this holiday. I am grateful that we have a great team of doctors and therapists/other medical professionals helping us navigate this world without pain. I am even grateful for all the challenges we’ve faced with schools and other medical professionals – they have taught us who is on our side, who really cares and who is just ticking boxes as they do their job, and how to really appreciate when someone does really care. I have SO much to be grateful for, more than is listed here by far.
I am grateful.
