There are so many things to be thankful for. Some are very simple. Others are more complex. Sunday, Kevin and I celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary. It has been a bumpy road but our relationship is stronger because of it. Laughter has been key. Heck. I think our relationship was founded on laughter.
Kevin’s friend was dating my best friend from high school. We all got together and went out to dinner at a place where you drew on the paper table covers. We were playing a Pictionary type of game and Kevin asked everyone to draw a “train wreck”. Everyone sat there drawing tracks and trains except me…I drew a mouth with food coming out. As in “Wanna see a train wreck?” Kevin was smitten.
I am so grateful for our incredible children. They are unique and wonderful and bring more to my life than I could ever have imagined. We are not without our difficulties. Autism is a challenge that sometimes seems greater than I can handle. But we do. And I am a better person because of it. My marriage is stronger and Cam and Gracie show compassion far beyond their years.
I am also grateful for my family. We rely heavily upon them because Owen’s needs can be so great. Continually, they step up to the plate. And I am grateful for our friends—those near and far and over the internet too.
Goodness knows, in the midst of all of life, knitting continues to keep me sane and drive me just a little bit crazy too. Most recently my mom knit me a lovely pair of socks which are warming my feet right now.
