Happy Thanksgiving!

From all of us here in Arena, Happy Thanksgiving! I realize that Turkey Day isn't until tomorrow, but we're planning on hitting the road pretty much immediately after Isaiah has his breakfast, so that doesn't leave much time for blogging. We've got a full day ahead of us filled with family and, of course, food. The latter is something I know I'm going to struggle with this year. I am so prone to over-eating in my daily life and the holidays only make it worse. I'm going to really make an effort to try to not stuff myself like a turkey. I'll probably be too busy trying to keep up with the "Walking Wonder" to be able to eat anyway!

So, what do we have to be thankful for this year? Where do I start? Here's the uber-edited, short list:

  • Our beautiful son
  • Each other
  • Our family
  • Our home
  • Our health

I guess most of all, I'm thankful that we are, when it comes down to it, really happy. God has blessed us beyond measure this year and we are so grateful. Despite the difficult economy and having to live paycheck to paycheck, our family is happy because we have each other. And for that, we are truly thankful.
