We have so much to be thankful for. I am reminded every day of that. Sometimes I feel like our society completely overlooks this holiday and just heads straight for the commercialism of Christmas. Not sure if you saw this or not, but Nordstrom is one of the only stores that has not already decorated for Christmas and I sort of like that about them. They made the statement, "We just like the idea of celebrating one holiday at a time. From our family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving." Maybe that's just a PR/Marketing tactic for them to stand apart from the rest, but I do like that they recognize Thanksgiving.

I'm not sure that the things that I am thankful for have changed much from last year, but I do have one pretty big thing to add to my list...and that is Georgia. I am so thankful to have her in my life. This time last year we were telling our families that we were pregnant. I thank God everyday that he blessed us with this healthy child. What a priceless gift! I'm also thankful for the time I get to spend with her. It is a joy watching her grow.
I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
