Usually, Thanksgiving makes me grateful for a couple days off work. And then it makes me regretful for how much I eat.
But this year is a little different. We're facing a few unexpected challenges this fall, and they do have the potential to REALLY bring our spirits down. Luckily, I am married to T, who is especially skilled at calming me and easing my anxieties. He's also willing to make difficult choices and sacrifice for our little family.
So this year I'm especially grateful for him. Maybe I should bake him a pie or something.
