Giving Thanks....by pemora

This is sappy, so if you are one of my snarky friends, stop reading now (you know who you are)...

I have been thinking a lot about what I am thankful for this year. As usual, I am thankful for family + friends, the many jokes I share with people, having a job, a roof over my head. But, this year? The best way I can share with you what I am thankful for is this pic...

No, I am not thankful for shoes, although shoes totally rock. I am thankful for the wearers of each of these shoes.

The newbie: even though she is only 6 months old, I can't imagine our family without her. She has the biggest smile, never cries, and is just a nugget of joy. Even when she is pooping. Okay, maybe not, but that is what I tell myself when I'm gasping for air.

The big boy: my first. My heart. It is amazing to see his personality + humor develop. Even if part of that humor is farting in my face. Boys.

The baby daddy: he works so hard to support us. I adore him. We are going on 12 years together. Marriage is hard work but I am grateful to be in this partnership.

Me: I am thankful for having a healthy body, that allows me to care and cherish and love these 3 people.

This is what I will have in mind on Thursday. And all the other days. What are you thankful for?
