Happy Thanksgiving!

Today has been an almost perfect Thanksgiving. Our family spent the afternoon having a wonderful meal together, the kids all got along, and my pies came out great! The only thing that kept the day from being fully perfect was my dad's absence. So, after dinner my family stopped by the cemetery to wish my dad a Happy Thanksgiving. The day didn't seem complete without him, so I had to go visit. It was the first time my son had been- I'm not sure how I feel about bringing kids to cemeteries- and he handled it pretty well. He misses his grandpa more than I think I realize most of the time. Its hard to believe that its been 5 months. In same ways it still feels so fresh and in others it seems like a long time ago.

But this post isn't meant to be depressing! I was working on a layout this morning and made a little word art. Since it seemed appropriate for the day I thought I would share it with you! I am so thankful this year for my family and my friends and I hope that you will enjoy this word art! "Thankful for You" will only be free for a couple of days- I have something else planned for you soon!

Have a safe and wonderful day!

thank you so much for the wonderful wordart.

I am sorry to hear about your dad's passing. My condolences are with you and your family.

My mom passed away over a year ago and my daughter misses her immensely. While it is sad for her to visit the cemetery, it also makes her feel good that she can still visit her gravesite. It's important that children know that because someone is gone that person should not be forgotten.

Have a great day.
