Being Thankful

As Christmas Day winds down, I am thankful for so much and so many. I am thankful for the tradition of going to a service last night, then driving to see the holiday lights before coming home and seeing the most amazing natural spectacle of an owl and fox both trying to get the same dinner, then lighting the candles around Sam’s tree.

Today, I am thankful for some old traditions (what we served for breakfast), and new ones (going to Ripton to see my parents). I am thankful for the time with our sons, time laughing, remembering, celebrating.

I am thankful for our animals, all of whom had special treats today, and got extra attention. I am thankful for a wonderful afternoon meal with family. I am thankful for text messages, calls, and emails from loved ones.

I am thankful for love, joy, support, hope.
