A Reflection of This Year's Thanksgiving

I haven't written on this blog since October since I've been focusing on my cooking blog.

Today is Thanksgiving.  Thanksgiving is a day to reflect on the blessings God has given you. Those blessings may be small or big.  

I've been blessed this past year.  In May, I turned 40 years old.  Hubby took me on a Disney Cruise because my goal for my 40th birthday was to go and do something new.  I did both while on the cruise.  First of all, I can now say I've been to the Bahamas even for a little bit of time.  Second of all, I can say I've swam with dolphins.  

Other blessings is watching Know-it-All grow socially.  He transitioned over to Boy Scouts in February and then joined DeMolay in August.  When he first joined Boy Scouts, he would barely talk to the other boys.  Now he knows different boys names and will talk to the boys at the meetings and at school.  On Tuesday I went to his school for their Thanksgiving feast.  It warmed my soul to see him interacting with his classmates.

Crazy One is another blessing even though he is my messy child.  He is smart and musically talented.  He can listen to a song a few times and can sing the lyrics and has the melody down pat.

Hubby is another blessing.  He loves the whole family unconditionally.
