On this Thanksgiving weekend, I am thankful for my wise, witty, wonderful daughter. At times, we swipe the wind right out of her sails. She is patient with us. We are patient with her. She is spreading her wings. We want her to stay our little girl. Safe, obedient, rule follower little girl. I love her for growing up into a respectful, wise, loving young woman.
I am thankful for my silly, super-charged handsome son who is so intense when he focuses hard on the things he loves. He is my intense reader that plows through book after book after book. He is my snuggler at 12 years old who still holds my hand when we walk side by side.
I am thankful for my home, my husband, my friends and family. I am thankful for my health. I am thankful for life. Now, Lord, help me find my place in the world of the gainfully employed…please.
