I'm THANKFUL for...

Thinking about this year being the first Thanksgiving without my grandmother, I am sad.
But I am also, SO very thankful for the time we had with her
and the short time my boys had with her as well.
I feel good knowing there is MUCH to be thankful for this holiday season...
here are just a few I'll share with all of you!
  • My husband, who is the best father, best friend and SO much more
  • our families, afterall they are what life is ALL about!
  • our friends, who have been there for us through life's ups and downs
  • and these two boys, who are my life...

Oh "Bonka", you are so missed beyond words. I hope that I'm making you proud. I learned so much from you while you were here with us and I hope to share those moments with my family and carry on your memory. And although it's hard celebrating Thanksgiving without you,
I know you are looking down on us as we gather together to celebrate this holiday season with the ones we love. We miss you and love you!


Happy Thanksgiving to all of YOU!!!

This is a very sweet post! This is the first time I'm celebrating Thanksgiving without my Great Aunty Sarah (who was like a grandmother to me in so many ways...). Yes, our loved ones will be truly missed but never forgotten!
