this was last thanksgiving at my parents.
SO much has changed between then and now.
i felt different. i enjoyed the food, but something was definitely different. michael and i had recently decided to go the "if it happens, it happens" route and started praying that God would allow us to have a baby in His timing. well, i had thoughts last thanksgiving that it happened. sure enough... i took a pregnancy test the monday after thanksgiving and it was positive. i took it while michael was at work and he was supposed to come home on his lunch break and i was going to surprise him. well, he got busy and didn't come home. i didn't talk to anyone that whole day (in fear that i would tell) and had to keep in this BIG news all. day. long. i was only like 5 weeks at that point and i'm glad because i got to enjoy one last big meal before the morning (all day for me) sickness came. this thanksgiving i'm so thankful for the little person that we get to share with our family. she brings such joy. i love her "cackles" when you tickle her and the way she reaches for her toes when she's lying on her back and her big smile when i tell her good morning. and it's safe to say, being a mama brings a whole new meaning to "thankful."
enjoy time with your loved ones.
AND EAT LOTS!
