Happy thanksgiving everyone in blog land.
I have so much to be thankful for. I have a wonderful husband who has been by my side and so supportive for 10 years. I have a smart, funny, independant, strong headed 4 year old who I love more than words can possibly explain. I had the ability to give myself a great education and because of that have a job that I LOVE and that, while its alot of responsibility, gives me the ability to help others. While I dont have a ton of friends, the ones that I have, I can honestly say I love like family and couldnt imagine them not in my life. I am healthy.
When my son woke up this morning I asked him what he was thankful for... his direct quote "my family, my pets, the birds in the sky and myself, who god made" - how sweet is that ?!? You can tell he is in a presbeterian (sp?) preschool because we are soooo not a religious family.
Today is not like my typical thanksgivings and I have come to terms with lack of family this year, its out of my control.
**My mom and grandmother are in Ohio meeting with the hospice people for my Great grandmother.
**My husband is working until 3 - police officers dont get the holidays off.
**My brother is dealing with a crisis right now that I cant fix and wish more than anything I could. My 11 month old niece is in the hospital with unexplained high fevers and an infection they cannot find. She was transfered last night from our local community hospital to the University hospital in the city. All of my thoughts are with them this morning, hoping they find out what is wrong with my amazing, wonderful, super sweet, strong niece.
The turkey trot is off the plans for today - its raining. If it was just me I would be there but Im not taking my 4 year old to run in the cold rain. I will be cooking. I may or may not have to abort dinner to head to the city to be with my brother.
Hope you all have a wonderful thanksgiving and are with the ones you love.
