Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.
I've told you that before.
I won't even discuss Christmas until after Thanksgiving.
No really, I won't.
I think Thanksgiving deserves a day
all to it's own without having to compete.
That's why this whole post is about Thanksgiving
even though I have LOTS to catch you up on.
Why do I love Thanksgiving so much?
It is like Christmas, without the emphasis on gifts.
It's being thankful for what you have, not wanting more.
It's spending time with Family.
Yes, I double, triple, quadruple ♥ Thanksgiving.
I have MUCH to be thankful for.
Are there things I'd like to see different?
Are there people I love that I don't see as often as I'd like?
There are TONS of things I am thankful for, too many to name actually.
All of my kids were with me for Thanksgiving.
We had Hayden from Wednesday til Monday morning.
I am SOOOOOO thankful for every minute I spend with him.
We are all healthy.
Haley is recovering nicely from her surgery and is back
to sleeping like a teenager once again.
She is doing Therapy twice a week and is progressing well.
She wears a sling only when in large crowds so people will be
cognizant of the fact she has a hurt arm.
Kylee remains seizure free.
I LOVE my job.
Not many people can say they
love to go to work everyday.
I can honestly say that.
I have a Family that loves each other and is
there for each other no matter what.
I have amazing Friends, some of which I would have never formed a
relationship with or even met had the Detour not been placed in my path.
Yes, I am thankful for the Detour.
It is one I didn't plan, nor would I ever
have planned, but it has been an amazing journey.
I am thankful for His Promises.
I am thankful He sends us reminders of Who He is.
I am thankful He will never leave us, nor forsake us.
(Even though we allow ourselves to be convinced otherwise, at times)
I am thankful His mercies are new every
morning and there is always an ample supply.
I am thankful for Flashing Neon Signs.
Yes, Blog Friends, I have MUCH to be thankful for, including you.
Here are a few pictures from Thanksgiving.....

Hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving!
Love you MUCH!
