Yesterday was Thanksgiving and I have to admit that I wasn’t looking forward to it. Despite Paul and I separating just before Thanksgiving last year, we celebrated as a family for the sake of the kids. So this was my first Thanksgiving “alone”.
The wonderful thing is that I’ve got great boys. I really do. They are so young but they are so simple. We’d all been sick this past week so I had no time to prepare for this holiday. But yesterday we woke up and the kids begged me just to make them their favorite dish (my homemade fried chicken) which is SO easy and we watched Disney movies all day. Bryce even told me this Thanksgiving was better than all the Thanksgivings he’s ever “been to”. What a doll.
I love my kids and I’ve realized that I truly have everything I need in life. I am so blessed and am just overflowing with thanks.
