What I’m Thankful For
I’m not usually the overly sentiment type, but as I sat at breakfast with ‘lil q I realized what a great year it had been. Aside from watching ‘lil q grow up and amaze me almost every day, I have a lot to be thankful for. Not necessarily in chronological order:
We’ve got an amazing family – on both sides – who are not just accepting. Our family has treated no differently than any other. They’ve been there for us every step of the way.
Mike and I got married in front of our friends and family.
My mother was declared cancer free in December and was able to come celebrate Christmas with us in our house.
‘lil q has all four of her grandparents who she adores:
We took our first family vacation – we even got to take Emma.
‘lil q had surgery – about as minor as it could be, but we still worried,
But she came through with flying colors and we had ice cream later that day:
We had birthdays, Easter, Mother’s day and Father’s day.
I had my first two books published on my own:
I’ve made many new friends through writing – too many to mention, (and I’d forget a few if I tried) but ‘lil q and I even got to meet a few in person:
‘lil q has started to develop from a baby to a little girl, going from crawling and barely talking to being bossy and sassy [okay so maybe I’m not totally thankful for the bossy and sassy.]
Seeing ‘lil q grow up has reminded me that there are so many little things that can be fun if I just let them.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone and may we all find new – and old – things to be thankful for in the year to come.
