Giving Thanks...

It is Thanksgiving morning and I have loads swirling through my brain, but really no cohesive way to put them to paper metaphorically speaking. I have mixed feelings about today. I am SO thankful to have my beautiful family although they are not all physically with me. Zac, the cats, and I are giving thanks by ourselves this year. Most of my readers know that my husband has been deployed, and my Kendra is spending the holiday with her father and his family. We had an awesome "last weekend" with hubby and the entire family last weekend. The house was abuzz with activity, kids, and happiness. We all loved it, and my husband was in heaven. Would I rather have them all here? Of course so, but it isn't in the cards for us. Like LOADS of military families, it isn't in the cards for them either. I just pray that they all come home safely.


  1. I hope you have a fun and relaxing day with your baby boy and all your furry babies!! I am so thankful for you and your husband's sacrifices that keep us all safe. Do I want them on that line? Ya darn tootin' I do! I am also thankful for you and other medical people who are there to help all of us when we need help... emergency and otherwise. Blessings to you and all your family Geri.

  2. Every one gives thanks for something, right now your Hubby may be giving thanks for his beautiful family, the guy next to him is giving thanks that he had a good supper!
    Thanksgiving Day is simply the 4th Thursday on the month of November.
    We can give thanks any other day as well! :-)

  3. Hugs to you {{{{Geri}}}}. Prayers for hubby's safe return.

  4. Geri,

    You and your family remain in my prayers. That hubby returns home safely and that the family continues to grow stronger even in his absence.

    Happy belated Thanksgiving to you!
