Happy Thanksgiving

When you think about what you are thankful for, you can't help but look at the road you have traveled.
Our road has been a difficult one but one I wouldn't trade.
I'm not sure this is going to make any sense and may not even be aloud, but I am thankful for that difficult road we have traveled.
I am thankful for the perspective I have.
I am thankful that my family has become closer, stronger through our difficult road.
I am a better mother, wife, daughter, and sister because of that difficult road.
I appreciate life and the little, but wonderful things.

We have two beautiful little boys that are happy and loved.
Children really do show you how to live.

I am thankful for Owen.
He has taught me so much in his young life.
He is full of love and life and happiness.
Owen is a lover. He loves to hug, cuddle, and kiss you.
I love rocking him to sleep and cuddling with him before he goes to bed.
I am thankful for Isaiah
He shows us the excitement in life.
He is always keeping us on our toes.
He is a reminder of how lucky we are to be blessed with a healthy child.
He loves his brother!
Isaiah is always very concerned for Owen when Owen is hurting
(even though he pushes Owen in the first place hehe)

I am thankful for my wonderful husband Heath.
I love you!
I am thankful that we have/are traveling this road together.
He helps me to walk slowly through this journey and take one step at a time
He is my strength and joy
Thank you for all you do for our family
