Long Thanksgiving Day
“The days are long, but the years are short.”
Today was a long one. It took us almost four hours to get to my parents’ house instead of two. Noutin slept the whole drive, both ways. My Nouarie had a harder time. She’s struggled in the car since she was tiny.
But, we drove through beautiful falling snow and made it just as the table was being set. I saw all of my siblings, including my brother Noland who drove twelve hours today. Nouarie played with her cousins. And, Noutin smiled and smiled in Grammy’s arms.
My family’s had some challenges this year, especially with with my dad’s health. This Thanksgiving, I am especially grateful he’s finally getting back to normal.
I’m also beyond grateful to be writing this as my two babies sleep in my arms and my Nishantha is down the hall working on a project.
Today was a long one, but I have so much to be grateful for, including many of you.
Happy Thanksgiving, friends!
