Thanksgiving

Home

 

The turkey is done.  The pies devoured.  And just a couple glasses of wine to wash it all down and it’s all settling nicely in the belly!  I nailed Thanksgiving this year.  Pleasantly full.  Not obscenely stuffed. 

DaveyG and I celebrated a near-perfect Thanksgiving day today; apart from family and friends, mind you, but together and appreciative for all our blessings; even after a tough year.

It’s no lie; 2012 hasn’t been terribly kind to us.  I’ve spent valuable time rehabbing injury after injury this year.  I had some great race opportunities, and some tough ones as well.  DaveyG spent most the year looking for a new job; both a great opportunity, but at times, a great frustration.  In short?  We’ve weathered a lot this year.  But are still so, so thankful.

This year, I am thankful for 12 years of blessed marriage to this wonderful man who has my back thru thick and thin.
