Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope all of you have a wonderful day, whether it is spent with family or friends. We will be spending time with my sister, nephew and her significant other. Then later in the day we will eat again with the in-law side. That means we will get to see Daniel and Lydia.
I am reaching to find what to be thankful for today. It is hard to see past the turmoil of the past 6 weeks and honestly I don't see the light at the end of this particular tunnel.

Eli is thankful that we have food and water and a house with heat and his sister. Oh and for the tv too.

Alex is thankful for me, his daddy and the dogs. And that he has guitar hero.

Olivia is thankful for the doggies and her family.

I do find more and more reasons to be thankful that I found knitting. Knitting has brought me some of the most wonderful friends. Friends that I am comfortable giving my kids to for a few hours. Friends that don't mind that I am not my happy, sunny, playful self. That listen when needed and don't try to fix what is impossible to fix. Some are far away, but I can still feel their love and support. Some are here and I am very happy to have them. Even tho they made me drink alone the other night.

I am thankful that the five of us are together.


  1. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours Sonya.

    Been thinking of you. ((hugs))

  2. Happy and blessed Thanksgiving to you and yours.

  3. That's sweet, that Eli is thankful for food and water. Considering 2/3s of the world doesn't have it - it's a good thing to be thankful for.

    I'm very thankful for you and your family, girl. I'm so glad that I met you and hope you know that you enrich my life in so many ways. I truly appreciate your friendship.


Hi,it's nice to hear from you.
Come back soon!
