Thankful

 
Never before have I had so much to be thankful for.
Actually, no. Let me start again.
 
Never before have I fully realized all that I have to be thankful for.
 
Earlier this year we went through the worst day of our entire lives, as a family, when we lost Justin.  I didn't know that any of us would ever smile again.  Or find joy in anything again.
 
But that day . . . or those months, rather, that have led to this day, have taught me about the fragility of life.  And I am reminded every single day how blessed I am.  How blessed we all are to have each other.  I think it can be easy, when you're thinking about what you don't have, to not fully realize what you do.
 
This Thanksgiving, and every other day for the rest of my life, I am especially reminded how thankful I am for my husband.  I cannot imagine one day without him.  I am so blessed by our time together.
 
Wishing you all a blessed, blessed Thanksgiving!  I'm thankful for y'all too  :)

I have lost a few loved ones in my life, some taken far too young, and there is no substitute for time. It is inspiring to see your heart is still full. Happy Holidays.

I hope your day and days are so sweet with your family.
