Thanksgiving is not just about thanks, it’s also about giving.
I am thankful for the first Thanksgiving in thirteen years that I was able to eat food without berating myself for being “so fat.”
I am thankful for the chance to experiment, the unquestioning support, the selfless encouragement, the wise and learned advice, the spirit of confidence.
I am thankful for my family, and it’s blessed growth over these past few years.
I am thankful for my husband, who continually surprises me with his love, and who continually surprises me into love.
I am thankful for the boom, who teaches me how to love.
I am thankful for this little bean, for all his promise, all his possibility.
I am thankful for God’s presence in my life.
