NaBloPoMo: Thankful Still

Friday, November 23, 2012

Thanksgiving was a good day. We traveled to my husband's hometown to visit my in-laws and arrived right on time for Thanksgiving dinner. The kids traveled well and are having a blast. I had a chance to see some family I haven't seen in a while. I am looking forward to connecting with my siblings, cousins, nieces and nephew this holiday. I am aware that family is a blessing and I cherish these relationships. I missed my late father-in-law this year. It's painfully obvious he's gone but it hit me when I realized there was no one to drink coffee with this year. Still, his legacy lives in the lives of his future generations. And what a new level of joy they bring to the holidays! Today I won't be joining on the Black Friday frenzy (well, I do need to go out and buy coffee) but I am thankful still. 
QUESTION • Do you have a good reason to be thankful still?
What is this?
