It‘s Thanksgiving Eve! I LOVE Thanksgiving. I love the food, I love the spirit of thankfulness, and I love forced family fun.
I just wanted to take a few minutes to say what I am thankful for this year. I spend an awful lot of time wrapped up in mayhem and it can be hard to have clarity or form coherent thoughts … but this morning I had a few hours to myself and I realized, without the screaming and yelling that normally goes on, how much I have to be thankful for.
I have some amazing girlfriends. God sent them to me because I have no siblings, and He knew I am the kind of girl who needs lots and lots of emotional support. So thank you, God, and thank you, girlfriends.
Husband is hilarious and weird and he is the air I breathe. And even though I am pregnant and mean to him most of the time lately, he remains his normal, consistent self. I am thankful to have a husband who is not emotionally wacked. He is always the same. I, on the other hand, am not.
My family and my married-into family is a group of strange and wonderful Southern characters. Overall, I have to say I am extremely fortunate … so many people don’t have a family at all, or the one they have is awful and they would be better off without them. I’m pretty sure my entire family reads this blog and I wish that they wouldn’t, but it is nice to have support. And it’s nice to know they still love me, even though I said shit and talked about pelvic rest. You can all stop reading at any time. I’ll still love you.
Happy Holidays! Go force your family into having fun.
