Happy Thanksgiving!

Today I am thankful, thankful, thankful.
Especially for the knowledge that God loves me.
He is my Father in Heaven.
I'm thankful to know that there is always hope.
I'm thankful that my wonderful mother taught me the true meaning of faith
and that my husband continues to demonstrate it to me
I'm thankful for family of all kinds. . .
the blood kind and the kind that may as well be.
I am thankful for 4 little boys (yes I'm including my husband)
who look at me every day full of wonder and trust.
They keep me awake to life and I love them more than anything in the World.

No matter how crazy life gets,
how hard and dark and overwhelmingly chaotic,
I want you to know that I know that there is always something to be grateful for.
There is absolute magic in gratitude.
It calms minds and softens hearts to the beauty all around.
Gratitude brings peace.
I know it.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

And Gav,

I wish you were here to dress up like an Indian with me and dance the day away.

I love you.

So, so very beautiful... I am so very grateful for YOU, and your never-ending enthusiasm and love for others. I am so grateful for the wonderful mother you are to our grandsons, and the incredible, understanding, and loving wife you are to our son. FULL of gratitude today.

Sweet Natty Gann. I am so thankful for you and all the wonder and laughter and love you have brought into my life--day after day, year after year. I'm thankful for your indomitable spirit and your unwavering faith. I'm thankful that you have given me those magical grandsons--and that you are raising them to be amazing men, just like their Daddy. And I'm thankful to know just how very close Gavin is, and that he so often drops by to see how we're doing and let us know how much he loves us. Especially you, his wonderful Sis. I love you Natty!
