Thankful: Family

I would imagine most of us are thankful for this today.  Whether you’re all together at the same table loving every minute or you got stuck sitting next to your Aunts new creepy boyfriend and are trying not to stab him in the hand with your fork, or, maybe your alone today.   Regardless, the holidays mean family to me.  Family is a very large umbrella, like, a golf umbrella, where your actual family and your created family all reside.  Even if the thought of them all being in the same room makes you hit the sauce and feel like your universes are about to collide.  Anyway..

Today we are in Tampa at my Dad’s dining table with my s-Mom Sue and the three of us.  I’ve been looking forward to this trip for a few months since I haven’t seen Dad since last Thanksgiving which means that Nate is a whole new kid since our last visit.   I am thankful that we are able to travel, that my Dad has a home that can accommodate us and that I have such a wonderful relationship with him.  No matter how much time has passed when we are together it’s as if it has only been a week. I am thankful for the few days we will have to spend here and that I can watch my Dad and my boy at Sea World and witness my Dad in his role of Grandpa, a hat he wears quite well.

Another reason I’ve been so looking forward to this trip is to tell my family in person, that in July, we will be welcoming another member. We’re pregnant. Today I am thankful for family!

Happy Thanksgiving!
