Thanksgiving Eve

The house is full of Holiday season smells. Pumpkin pie baking in the oven, Christmas candle burning, and an oil burner letting off the most magnificent cinnamon spice smell-mmmmmmm!!!

Last year at this time, I was on bed rest. Feeling so blessed that at last baby #3 was on the way, yet still terrified of something going wrong. I had already been hospitalized for preterm labor and also for hemorrhaging. I was so anxious to no longer be pregnant and to get my sweet baby here in my arms safely. Bittersweet too, knowing it would be the last time I was pregnant. This year, I am soooo thankful and blessed to have these beautiful children and the most amazing husband. I look and my life and just have to shake my head-how in the world did this all happen to me??? Happy Thanksgiving to anyone that may stumble on this blog. May you be present, aware of your blessings, and feel full of joy!
