With the Thanksgiving holiday quickly approaching, I wanted to take a moment to post something before the busyness of the weekend begins. I’m really looking forward to a change of scenery as well as spending time with family. Have I mentioned lately how much I love them??
This time of year, I tend to be more reflective. With with year coming to a close in just another month, it’s hard not to think back on what this year has become. It’s certainly not been what I anticipated, but I still find myself so thankful.
I was telling Kevin just this evening that one of the things I miss the most is not being able to snuggle with Andrew. I have always been a bit of a snuggler and I was so looking forward to spending quality time snuggling my little Andrew. Perhaps he’ll save me a few snuggles for when I see him one day in heaven!
I know I’ll miss Andrew a lot this weekend. This would have been his first Thanksgiving Day, and perhaps he would have joined me in the Baby Bjorn while doing some Black Friday shopping. Oh, I wish my little boy was here!
I’m still so thankful for him! I’m so thankful for every moment he was in my womb. I am thankful for every bit of nausea and every headache. I’m thankful for all the heartburn and every stretch mark – ha! It was worth it all – HE was worth it all. I had no idea I’d have empty arms this Thanksgiving, but I’m still so thankful. I wouldn’t trade those 9 months for anything!
I’m so thankful that the Lord has sustained me through this storm. He’s truly been my rock.
I hope that you all have a blessed Thanksgiving!
