A Thankful Thanksgiving

IMG_1438.JPG
I am not one that has to post everyday what I am thankful for. Not that there is anything wrong posting what you are thankful for.

But this one time I want to say how thankful I am for family and what it really means.

Today we were invited spend thanksgiving with some friends. We had a great meal and great conversation. It is awesome to have people like them in our lives.

Although they may be like family that aren’t the family I am talking about. I in this instance am talking partially about my wonderful wife.

Shannon is wonderful she loves all of her family more than anyone could know.

On our drive to our friends we were listen to Christmas music. Just the usual jingle bells, carpenters came on among other Christmas music. I love how music can bring memories of life back to us. This is when I look over at Shannon and she is in tears. A Nate King Cole song was playing. And it hit me she is thinking of her mother. I know that Shannon didn’t always get along with her mom. But there are two things that I do know is that her mom did love Christmas time. And Shannon did love her mom. And it happens that particular song was one of Shannon’s mom’s favorites. It is like ever tear that my wonderful wife shed a million memories were flowing down her cheeks. For those that don’t know Shannon lost her mom to cancer months ago.

This is why I thankful for family. Family is life, family is memories , family is everything and more. Those of our loved ones that have passed and those that will follow us. I am thankful for you.

My Family and I are big Movie watchers. We don’t go to the movie theaters that often due to the cost of taking a family of seven. But we do Love movies.

I have to say that we all are pretty excited to check this one out. I myself loved the Jurassic park movie when they came out when i was a kid. I do have to say I wasn’t a fan of the second and third parts as i was the original. But this Reboot if you will ¬†looks pretty awesome.

We will be going to this as a Family for sure.
