Thankful Four...

This Thanksgiving, I'm especially thankful for these four:

From left to right,

1) Sam, who brings me the sweetest joy each and every day. Through him I've learned not to take anything for granted. He is truly a blessing to be thankful for this year, as we have been waiting years for his arrival into our lives.

2) John, one of my biggest challenges in life right now, but without a doubt one of my biggest blessings. I'm learning and growing so much in ways that I never expected to because of this special kid.

3) Peter, who is not only my husband and the father of my children, but also my best friend. He's talented, kind, and he has a heart of gold. I lucked out to get him.

4) Christy, my beloved dog of 14.5 years who has been with me through high school, college, getting married, working, and having kids. Last month she became very sick, and for the first time in her life, I thought she might be nearing the end. But she's made a full recovery and is healthy and happy again. I love my dog and I'm thankful we've been together for so long.

I wish you and the ones you love a very happy Thanksgiving!
