Happy Thanksgiving!

Today I have a lot to be thankful for.  (I have a lot to be thankful for every day, but have been more mindful of it recently.)  Some examples?

I'm thankful for healthy, happy, smart children. 
For the three brothers who love each other and are great little friends.
I'm thankful for David's wit, his sense of humor, his smiling face, his silly jokes, and his warm snuggles at night.

I'm thankful for Henry's big heart, his sensitivity, and his charm. 
For the way he cares about other people first, and for his generosity. 
For his big hugs, his happy personality, and his big love for his mama.

I'm thankful for crazy baby Jack, who always keeps us laughing.
For his persistent personality, even when that means he's having a fit about something.
For his (still) little baby voice, because I can hold on to that baby for a little longer.
For his warm little baby breath, and his little arms hugging my neck.
For his naughty, naughty ways and his sweet little smile.

I'm thankful that his dive into the coffee table warranted nothing worse than a cut
and some embarassing Minnie Mouse ears.

 I'm thankful for a wonderful husband, who loves me very much. 
And tells me often.
For a healthy marriage that isn't always perfect, and takes a lot of work.
But is well worth the effort.
I'm thankful he's a great dad, and loves our children with his whole heart.
I'm especially thankful that his surprise trip to the ER yesterday was not as scary as it could have been.
I'm thankful for health, and for the good fortune we've had.
I've got a lot to be thankful for.
Happy Thanksgiving!
