So, it's been awhile since I've blogged. And that's because I usually blog at night and recently my two-year-old son has decided he doesn't want to go to bed. He's realized he can climb out, open the door and run down the hall anytime he feels like. So, needless to say, it's taking a really long time to get him to bed lately....and we're really worn out! It's kind of the same game at nap time. My free time is fading!
Friday night Mike and I were feeling a little sorry for ourselves. Complaining about the lack of sleep, lack of free time. We were on our way home from a tree lighting ceremony with two screaming kids in the back seat. Gia was screaming and Angelo was trying to compete with her crying. We pulled into Little Ceaser's to pick up a pizza. Mike ran inside to get it and I looked over and saw a family sleeping in their car. Mike saw the dad inside applying for a job. It kind of hit us....why are we complaining? We have a home, jobs and a wonderful family....so we're not sleeping that much right now, it's a small price to pay for all the things in our lives. It was quite appropriate for a little Thanksgiving reminder.
And that's what Thanksgiving is truly about. Being happy with what we have and the people around us. Realizing you can't chance anyone, and sometimes you can't change circumstances, but you can be happy to have them in your life.
Happy Thanksgiving Blog Friends!
