Happy Turkey Day! Gobble Gobble…
As I sit down to write this post on Thanksgiving eve, my heart is full. There is so much to be grateful for.
I’m grateful for my strong, brave, and dedicated husband who is on the other side of the world doing his part so we can all enjoy the safety and freedom we often take for granted.
I’m grateful for my beautiful babies, Brody & Ava, who have taught me so much about life and love. To see things through their eyes is a beautiful gift, and I’m forever blessed to be their Mama.
I’m grateful for my sissy. She is my rock. She always knows just what to say when I’m having a bad day, how to make me laugh, or simply lend a listening ear when I need to vent. She loves my kids like they are her own, and we are all so lucky to have her in our lives.
I’m grateful for my parents. As mom likes to say, they did a pretty good job! They’ve always shown me the importance of hard work and dedication. They’ve always supported me, and have really stepped up to help me since Jeremy left. All the extra road trips and visits are much appreciated. Brody and Ava are so lucky to have such wonderful grandparents.
I’m grateful for my Nikolina. My sister from another mister, my twin the same except for our heads ;), my BFF for life. From passing notes in junior high and sneaking vodka into sweet 16’s, to getting married and having babies, you’ve always been there for me. You are the definition of a true friend. I love you to the moon and back.
I’m grateful for my Nanny. We shared a bond like no other. I think of her every single day, and at times am blessed to still feel her presence around me. I love knowing my angel is always close by.
I‘m grateful to have the opportunity to work from home, have flexible hours, and be here to put the kids on the bus and get them off. They are growing so fast, and I love being able to be here for every milestone.
I’m grateful to feel so supported by friends and family. Thank you to everyone who has reached out, sent packages to my kids, offered to drive them to and from sports activities or have playdates simply so I could have a moment to breathe. These simple acts of kindness mean the world to me.
So often we rush through our days, getting frustrated by the little things. Lord knows I’ve been guilty of that. But when we take a moment to step back and reflect on all the positive things in our lives, there are blessings all around us. Just take a look!
From my family to yours, I wish you a happy and healthy Thanksgiving.
