Giving Thanks...


Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays but this was a weekend I had been dreading.  Unsure of which way it would go (would I end up locking myself in my closet with a bottle glass of wine rocking on the floor the entire time?), I braced myself for the worst version of me to seep through.

I'm happy to report composure was maintained and the entire family did really well.  We had some new friends join us and hootin' and a hollerin' wafted through the house.  Had it not been for the massive caloric intake, I would of had abs of steel from all the laughter.

Yes, Thursday has come and gone.  Leftovers are but a memory and pants are snug in all the wrong places.  Well mine are, anyway.  The bombardment of the holiday season in full swing but I will continue to be thankful.

I give thanks for my beautiful, crazy children, an amazing family, old and new friends, our home, laughing again (so hard it hurts), my job and awesome bosses.. and for somehow keeping my nose above water level.  Even when it's hard to see them, there are loads of blessings, big and small..

Everywhere.

I love the feeling of a full and laugh-weary tummy.

I'm thankful for you this year, my friend. You are one of my blessings.

I'm glad (but not surprised) that you've passed another milestone with grace.

(and GO BRONCOS!!)

Seriously, Melissa, seriously... You are AMAZING! To call your strength and grace through all of your challenges inspiring doesn't even begin to cover the half of it! I am so thankful for your blog.

Hugs to you and your beautiful, crazy children :)
