Thankful for a beautiful 6 year old whose kind heart and amazing mind inspire me and make me prouder every day.
Thankful for the most incredible 4 year old I’ve ever known. Her fairy spirit knows no bounds, and the inner workings of her mind are some of the most indescribably magnificent places humankind has ever experienced.
Thankful for an adorable little almost-18 month old whose smile lights a room, whose laughter brightens the darkest hours, and whose hugs make everything better.
Thankful for the man whom those 3 miracles call Daddy, without whom none of this would be possible.
Thankful for the time to be everything to our children, day and night.
Thankful for the health and strength to be everything to our children.
Thankful for family near and far, here and beyond. No matter how frequent or infrequent the contact, all are forever a part of us.
Thankful for friends old and new. Those friends who are always there, who know your secrets, who will keep you laughing until your sides ache and your cheeks hurt, and who make it seem like no time has passed at all when you meet again.
Thankful for friends, neighbors, and good people who believe in and value the same things. The importance of knowing you are there for our children, too, cannot be put into words.
Thankful for this house that becomes more and more our home every day. Our children came home here, are growing up here, and are learning life here. It is ours and they are safe here.
Thankful that our children are already realizing this is what’s important in life; that not everyone has what we do even when so many have so much more; and to be thankful and grateful, not greedy and selfish.
So very thankful, always.
