10 Things I’m Thankful For Today

24 Nov

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays.  Besides all of the amazing food that I can stuff my belly with, I am surrounded by the people that I love most.  Each year our family joins together and spends the day and mealtime laughing, reminiscing and just loving each other’s company.

Happy Thanksgiving from Helicopter Mom and Just Plane Dad

We tell the same old stories that I’ve heard every year since growing up and listen to the new stories told by the children, from their viewpoint.  With the exception of my (just turned young adult) niece, the other kids are now young adults and are making memories of their own.

Since my daughter is now a young adult, this year has been particularly emotional and the holidays will have special meaning. We begin the juggle between houses. She spends time with her family and that of her boyfriend. While this breaks my heart, it also serves as a reminder of all of my blessings. Please remember to enjoy your family on this special holiday; yes even crazy Aunt Nutty!
