Can you believe Thanksgiving is next week?
I'm really looking forward to getting together with my wonderful family! I have the best in-laws ever! Not only did they accept me as one of their own the moment I met them, but they also welcomed my parents with open arms. As an only child, that means so much to me. My husband and I never have to alternate holidays between the two families, and I never have to worry about my parents being on their own. I'm so lucky to be part of a close-knit, fun, loving group of people! Mushy, I know, but I love 'em. No wonder my husband is such a good man!
I'm also grateful for the amazing teachers that have helped the Little Nugget be the smart, sweet, funny, giggly, ornery Monkey that WE knew she was, but nobody else ever got to see. Earlier this spring, she was diagnosed on the Spectrum, and the early intervention she's received as a result has made a world of difference. For the first time since she was born, I am looking forward to a Christmas in which she's an excited, engaged participant, able to play and interact with her cousins, and experience the pure childhood joy of Santa Claus, Christmas carols, over-the-top holiday displays, and opening gifts! This is going to awesome!
What are you thankful for?
