Thankful

At 6:24 this Thanksgiving morning, I woke to the sound of soft whimpers from the bassinette and simultaneous calls of "Mama" from the crib.  I opened my eyes to see my handsome, loving, hard-working husband beside me.  A few preparations and soon there were four of us snuggled down in our tiny double bed, with milk and Mickey Mouse, taking a few more moments to ease into the day.  As a family.

Thankful doesn't even begin to describe it.

Elizabeth, you know what I think is one of your many wonderful qualities, that you are so appreciative of all your good fortune. I think those who on a regular basis thank God and those who are in there life for all that is given to them are truly the happiest and most blessed of us all, because they are grateful for all that is in there life no matter how small. Love you
