I can’t believe it is Thanksgiving already.
Where has the year gone?
I think this one zoomed by faster than the rest.
This is my second Thanksgiving with my little grand girl – Averey Elizabeth.
An itty bitty baby a year ago.
And this year, she has changed so much. She is a mover and shaker. Loves to play, laugh, clap, squeal, and RUN.
This is her and Bridget at the park last weekend. The baby is running, and Bridget is trying to keep up.
The best part of my outing is when Bridget plops down next to me and says out of breath, “I am tired!”
I guess being an eight-year-old and chasing after a busy toddler is too much for her.
What’s funny is I have photos of her “running” all crazy. And you know? It wasn’t that long ago…
I am so thankful I have been in her life since she was a toddler.
I am thankful to share the love of Averey with her.
I am pretty sure they will be friends for a long, long time.
I’ve had an entire year plus a few months of being a Grandmother. I wish I could explain what joy that brings me, but it isn’t something you can explain. It is just something you feel in your heart.
I am grateful for this experience. It is a treasure and a gift.
And yes, it is going by way too fast. I don’t want her to grow up, and yet, I can’t stop time. I’m not sure I would want to either. I am enjoying the great changes she is making.
So, I will cherish every moment. Every run. Every laugh. Every squeal.
And I am thankful.
So very, very thankful.
I thank you all for being here. I wish you many blessings and memories on this Thanksgiving Day.
If you don’t celebrate, that is okay. You can still be thankful.
Just take a quick lesson from a very cute fifteen-month-old.
