Tomorrow is the day we all give thanks and gather around the table for a feast.  I'll be spending a quiet Thanksgiving with my little family of four.  And that is okay.  Veronica has asked a few times about having guests over.  Even a five year old knows that many people spend holidays visiting and gathering together to celebrate with their family.  I think it is just hard for her to grasp that this IS her family.  To all of you - spend time with your loved ones on this holiday and don't assume you can do it later for later may never come.

Being thankful for family and friends is a given.  I'm so glad to be a Mom to my girls.  I'm thankful to have a husband who works hard to provide for us and strives to do better.  I'm thankful for the few good friends I have.  I'm thankful that we have more than enough.  I'm thankful for our home, even with it's flaws, it is ours one-hundred percent. As we sit at our small table set for four tomorrow, I will be glad that we are all together.  My husband is home and not working offshore or overseas.  My girls are happy and healthy.  I have a happy family.  For that, I am most thankful of all.
