A little late in the day, perhaps, but it’s been a busy day for me. Had a great Thanksgiving though, with the people that I love the most, and that love me.
It’s a day about being thankful, and I have so much to be grateful for.
In 2008, I essentially sleepwalked my way through preparing a Thanksgiving meal. I know I hosted, but I truly have no memory of the day. I was that shellshocked still, from finding out about ex’s infidelities.
And now it’s 2013. Life is so much better. My table was filled with good food. My house was filled with love and laughter. The conversation was good. The company was wonderful. I had help with both cooking and cleaning up afterwards. Help that was given without me having to even ask for it, never mind nag to get it.
I am so thankful for where I am in my life right now. I am loved. I love deeply. My kids are healthy, and healing. We are building our new family traditions, and reclaiming holidays that were tainted, I thought for forever, by the ugliness of a marriage that imploded with so much collateral damage.
Life is good, and I’m happier than I ever thought I could be. 🙂
