One year ago, Thanksgiving Day

NaBloPoMo – Day 22

One year ago on Thanksgiving Day I was not busy cooking a turkey, but I was busy giving birth to my 9 1/2 pound little butterball. ;) Julian’s 1st birthday is tomorrow on Nov. 23, but Thanksgiving Day each year will always hold a special place in my heart since that is the day he came into the world. :)

Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving to all. :)
