As Thanksgiving 2017 comes to a close, I can't help but sit here and think about how truly blessed I am!  Today we spent our morning all snuggled up watching cartoons, afternoon with my family and then this evening with Joshua's family.  It truly was such an amazing day surrounded by those we love!  Heres the kicker, it wasn't our day that got me thinking, it was how our night ended once we got home.

I was rocking Braxton before bed just like I do every other night, but tonight was different.  He fell asleep all snuggled up to me as I sang him every song he requested.  Instead of just laying him in his crib, I soaked up the snuggles that I could.  It isn't very often that he falls asleep with me, or sticks around for snuggles without constantly throwing kicks and elbows.  As I was rocking him to sleep, it just kind of hit me how perfect my life really is.  I am living my best life.

We have a roof over our heads, food in our bellies, amazing friends and family who love and support us, the opportunity to spend each and every day with each other, but above all else - we have each other.  We wake up each and every day to the people that mean the most to us, tiny little people that love us more than humanly possible.  Not everyone gets to see their kids every single day, not everyone was able to spend the holidays with their family, and not everyone has a place to call home. We have been blessed beyond measures with the things that we have and I truly cannot put into words how thankful and grateful I am for the life I live.

I hope each of you had an amazing day.
Happy Thanksgiving from our little family to yours!
