"The Pilgrims came from far away...

to create for us this Thanksgiving Day".

Thanksgiving has always been a day that I have reflected upon what I am thankful for. After spending the last three days listening to my kindergartners share what they are thankful for--family, toys, video games, the pool, god and of course, most importantly Santa (?)--I decided to make sure that I shared what I am thankful on this first LM Thanksgiving.

I am thankful for LM--a blessing greater than we could've imagined. Watching him grow, change, learn and just in general love life, is something more special than I could've ever imagined.

I am thankful for TH--who is an AMAZING father and gets up with LM, changes his diaper and brings him to snuggle with me in bed on mornings he knows that I am exhausted or (like this morning) wake up with a raging headache (would've imbibed more last night if I knew I would wake up feeling like it anyway!!). He is wonderful and I am so lucky to have him.

I am thankful that I have a job that I love (most of the time!) and is secure. I have colleagues who inspire me and look to me for help, which pushes me to be better.

I am thankful for family--so much of it that it is overwhelming sometimes.

I am thankful for the Moms I have met in this journey---you teach me and save my sanity.

I am thankful we have a home and a safe place to live--I realize not everyone has this luxury.

I am thankful that I have this space to share my thoughts, ideas and experiences...and receive back such amazing support!

Happy Thanksgiving!!
