Giving Thanks

Made it through another holiday.

And yes, that is exactly how I feel right now.  It is almost like we can cross that page off the calendar and take a breath.

We had a delicious dinner with family here at our house.  I loved having Ethan, Abby, and their cousins all running around the living room where Hannah was because she was right in the middle of all the action.  My younger nieces, younger than Hannah, smothered Hannah with kisses quite a bit through the night.  Some of the grown ups, like me, even ate in the living room so Hannah was never left alone.

To have her on this holiday with us… I am very thankful.

    Carrie ~ Because of parents like yourself, I’ve become so aware of all the many children who are ill and their tremendous struggles. I am thankful for you opening my eyes and my heart. So glad you were able enjoy the family and know that Hannah was included.
