Oh so thankful.
With Thanksgiving quickly approaching and the month of November coming to a close, I can't help but be giddy for the next big holiday! I have so many fun things planned and decorations to make and cookies to bake, that I can hardly wait. But this week is so important these days. A time to sit back and reflect on the aspects of life we have to be thankful for. A home, a family, a career, food, warmth and each other.
After work tomorrow, I have a stretch of days off and I am so excited! They will be filled with family, food, decorating, and festive activities. Of course there is one thing that I am bummed about, but will try not to focus on this next month. I AM WORKING ON CHRISTMAS! Yes, I will leave my house at 5:30 a.m. and not return until 9:00 p.m. I wont see my baby boy on Christmas. Because of that, I must make the whole month special. And most of all realize that the reason I wont see my family on Christmas Day is because I am taking care of someone else's.
