We are thankful.....

 We are thankful that our paths have been chosen by God to be a family.  We live, learn and laugh together always remembering how truly blessed we are to have each other.
 We are thankful for the sunshine that lights up our days just about every day here in our beautiful home.
 We are thankful to raise this amazing child who teaches us everyday that we really aren't as smart as we thought we were. ; )
 We are thankful for our pets, those who have just joined our family and those we have lost.  They teach us so many things about caring, patience, silliness and responsibility.
 We are thankful for the beauty that surrounds us.  Everyday we find the wonder in the sunrise, mountains and landscape, never forgetting how blessed we are.
 We are thankful for our health, even though we have known struggles, we continue to go forward with a positive spirit.
 We are thankful to share and enjoy good food with each other.  I am thankful my daughter will eat anything I put on the table ( with gusto) and The Chief has embraced gluten free cooking.  It's a blessing to have eager mouths to feed when you love to cook! ; )
We are thankful for our family.  We are blessed to have my parents so close by and active in Alexa's life.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi Sue. It looks like you all had a fab time! I love that dress on Alexa, I dont think there is a colour she wouldnt suit..her skin tone is just scrummy..lucky duck!
Nice family picture too, Sue..I think you look like your mum.
I read your words a couple of times and I really "felt" what your were saying...our lives could have been so different and we are both very very lucky. Ps Your garden looks devine...Dx

This is one of the sweetest dresses I've ever seen. Ohhh I just love the smocking. It's screams "little girl." Hang on to yours....she's growing up too fast.
