Another round of holidays in the "pen." Not a fun place to be in general and on the holidays, it is especially dreary. One bit of advice I can give to those out there is, do NOT take those you love for granted. Yes, family holiday events can be a drag and annoying with lots of drama, but soak it in with joy and grace because if you did not have them and could not be close with those you love at Thanksgiving, you would realize how much you appreciate everyone, despite their idiosyncrasies and less desirable traits. Treasure every moment and BE THANKFUL for all your blessings. This will be the LAST Thanksgiving I am alone without my Precious 3! I love you so much Donovan, Aven and Vincent and I can not wait to be with you on the holidays next year (and sooner). Grandmom is fighting hard to see you too! We both love you SO MUCH!!! We will celebrate like never before! Cherish togetherness, for those you love are the greatest blessing of all to be thankful for on this Thanksgiving. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
