Today I am thankful…
...for a comfortable albeit chaotic home that can host my whole family,
...a new oven, and my first-ever turkey that turned out nearly perfect.
...for a newly discovered pinot grigio that was super cheap at Trader Joes.
...for music, parades and the tears I shed while watching marching bands and the Rockettes.
...for family and friends-old and new.
...for good health, even though I so easily neglect daily habits that I know would help keep me healthy.
...for my amazing husband who washed every dish in the sink on Thanksgiving Day. (and most other days)
...for all the other grownups in my children's lives -teachers, coaches, youth leaders, friend's parents who love them like their own.
…for a God who doesn't give up on me even when I can so easily go a whole day without acknowledging Him.
the equation of a family, or...adding up the ordinary into something extraordinary, or...what you get when you add a guy, a girl, 4 kids, a dog and a cat, a little chaos, hours of music, lotsa faith, a dash of crazy, and oodles of love.
