Thanksgiving~ I am Thankful

by Deborah Cruz

Thankful~ Today is one of my favorite holidays of the year. Why, besides loads of awesome food, is it my absolute favorite, you ask? Because Thanksgiving is the holiday that we host! Yes, myself, the Big Guy and our girls host  30 or so of our beloved family members at our house. God bless them, everyone of them live out of town at least an hour and a half drive but its our annual Truthful Mommy & Big Guy Thanksgiving celebration and it is amazing. My parents, his parents, our brothers and sisters, their spouses and children, grandparents and any friends or extended family that needs or wants to stop by. Our Thanksgiving celebration is complete craziness but it is beautiful and warm. I get the warm fuzzies just thinking about their arrival. So, today in commemoration of these wonderful people and the sentiment behind this holiday, I am listing what I am thankful for on this Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving, thankful, family, friends, celebration, November

Thankful for my Many Blessings
