Graham about to walk his sister down the aisle
Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday.
I love preparing with the Macy's Parade in the background.
"When is Santa coming, mommy?"
We don't have a large family.
So for me,
it's a peaceful day.
No matter where we are.
New Jersey, Annapolis, Acton or here.
Today I am preparing for 15.
Ironically my two will not be with me.
Both for very exciting reasons,
but they won't be here.
Being a grown up is hard.
Elizabeth Stone said it best;
"Making the decision to have a child is momentous.
It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body."
I am grateful for the amazing lives
Alexandra and Graham are living.
I am blessed for the life I have lived.
It is not one I would have chosen.
But out of it, there has been good.
I am thankful.
PS Tomorrow Alexandra and I are having
a mini Thanksgiving. We are make our dressing
and we will send it to Graham.
Even though we'll not be together,
it will taste yummy!
I love you
One of our happiest and most thankful moments this year
