Thankfulness

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day at my parents' house. It was filled with the usual traditions and jabs and demands from small people. We have so much for which to be thankful:
*the birth of Baby Theo
*Kazmer's return to health
*Harlan's breathing more easily 
*a new diagnosis for Amanda's breathing difficulties and therapy on the way
*a new home for Todd's stepmother
*a lovely recent visit between Amanda and Gua
*great times for the kids playing in the snow
*new successes for Todd's company
*funds to shop for gifts


We miss Todd's dad, thinking of him especially this morning when we were making phone calls to the family members we did not see today... And, this weekend, we will lay to rest Ardy's older brother Dean. Even in times of sadness we must find ways to rejoice and to give thanks.
