Happy...


Today, Thanksgiving, is a day that we are asked to take stock of our blessings. To look at the positive. To be grateful. And today, I am. Not just because it is Thanksgiving, but because I am everyday. 

Everyday I revel in the fact that I am so lucky to have an amazing family: parents, brother, grandmother, aunts, uncles, cousins, mother and father in-law, brother and sister in-law (and their whole brood). I love each and everyone of them for the fun, quirky, interesting people that they are. I love that when we get together, we talk and laugh and have thought provoking conversation. And that everyone loves and supports each other. And that each member of the family is a wonderful complement to next.

Everyday I revel in the fact that my husband is the one true love of my life. My best friend. My confidant. My rock.  

And that my friends (you all know who you are) are beyond fabulous. I don't know what I would do without you gals. I love you all more than you know.

And, of course, everyday I revel in the pure existence of my son. Not an hour goes by that I don't think about how lucky I was to be able to conceive him. Not one moment passes that I don't realize how blessed I am to have him in my life.

Today Dashell learned the word "happy". (Actually, not just the word but also the abstract concept.) This is Dash showing off his happy face...


And you know what? I think that sums it up.

Today, I am not just thankful. Today, I am truly... 
 
...happy.
