Happy Fake Thanksgiving

Happy ThanksgivingSean and I do not have our children for Thanksgiving this year. Since it is Sean’s favorite holiday, we decided to have a Thanksgiving dinner early with our kids. We will still be spending the real holiday with friends and family so yesterday’s dinner was a bonus for us all. It also gave us an extra day to focus on being thankful.

Here are a few things I was thankful for on Fake Thanksgiving:

  • The mutual friend who took a chance playing matchmaker by introducing me to Sean.
  • Our five wonderful children and a bonus young woman who is dating Sean’s oldest son.
  • Having my mother finally meet this special man in my life.
  • Gluten-free pumpkin pie.

What are you thankful for today?

      They bring so much to our lives, don’t they? Joy, wisdom, a new perspective.

  3. I am moving towards a blended family with five kids. You give me hope that it can work.

      Oh, that’s wonderful news Matthew! Best of luck as you work towards blending a new family. Sean and I are blessed with kids who genuinely like each other as well as the new adult in their lives. We are a happy “family.”
