Week 46 (November 18th-24th): Happy Thanksgiving

Posted on

With Thanksgiving this past week, I recognize that I sure do have a lot to be thankful.

I am thankful for all the obvious things. My husband & children. That my family is healthy and happy (most of the time!). That we have family that loves us. Enough money for a random stop at Starbucks. The list is quite endless.

There are so many seemingly small things that really are big things. One of those things has been captured in this picture. I am truly thankful that my children love books. If I say “Go read a book,” they will gladly comply 99% of the time. They can sit and listen to Jeff or me read stories to them for HOURS. And Caroline has begun to “read” stories to Liam. I am thankful they already have a love of books and hope it stays with them for all their days.
