As Thanksgiving draws closer I think of all the things I have to be thankful for:
Our wonderful son who has learned how to express joy and happiness since joining our family only a few months ago!
Wonderful family outings to the Buddy Walk and Grist Mill
Our compassionate daughter who is very involved in community service projects, the Key Club, and Natural Helpers
Our loving teenage son who still has time to give his parents hugs before he heads off to bed and who helps out without complaining
Our adult daughter who enjoys sweets enough to make oatmeal cookies for everyone
Our kindhearted daughter who flew home at a moments notice while we were in country adopting Veronika and Gavyn to help watch her younger siblings. (pictured with her husband)
My amazing husband who loves all his children very much and tries to spend one on one time with each of them
The bond of siblings
And for quiet moments, where we can just think about our day and be thankful.
