Looking out the window
It occurred to me that I had never been so happy to see a sunset in my life.
Thanksgiving Day was over.
We made it.
I just wanted to take a bath and go to bed.
But the boys were still wound up.
They'd had a blast with the cousins.
Which is what made me glad I had taken them to our family Thanksgiving dinner.B said it was a GREAT day, and that he was so thankful.
I asked him if he was saying he was thankful for his cousins.
He looked thoughtful and said he was so thankful for everything.
Funny how a day playing with family,
And just romping around the yard
Can fill you with such joy and gratitude.
I do remember those days well.
And I am thankful for all of those wonderful times
And all of the fun Thanksgivings.
And I hope there will be more in the future
And even though I wasn't "feeling it" this year,
Maybe that hope is what helped me
Muster up the energy,
And put on my "big girl" pants,
and my Nanny's scarf
