As I lie in bed, sandwiched between Carl and Lily, nursing her and finding the soles of Carl's feet with my own, I'm reminded why this is without a doubt my favorite holiday.
Though far from perfect, my life is filled with love, passion, commitment, and family and friends who make it all worthwhile.
Today I am grateful for all the blessings, both big and small, that have entered my life over the past year. I am so grateful to be celebrating this day with our families and friends, Ryland and our sweet Lily.
I feel blessed that Carl and I have come so far in these past twelve months and I am thankful for the quiet moments, a kiss that lasts just a few extra seconds, that one shared look during a busy day that seems to say, "Yep, I know. And I love you, too."
I am humbled each day when I look into my daughter's big brown eyes, so full of life and questions, and I think to myself, thank God for it all.
Happy Thanksgiving, friends. Thank you for reading and sharing a bit of your day with me.
