We spent Thanksgiving at Aaron’s parents house. I left my computer at home, and while I planned to just blog when we got home, I got a little further behind than I planned.
Day 22: Today, I’m thankful for books. I love reading– for the entertainment and to learn new things. It’s a fun way to get a perspective of something that I wouldn’t otherwise understand. My two favorites that I’ve read recently are the Handmaid’s Tale and Kitchen House.
Day 23: I’m thankful for my warm, comfy bed. I was definitely missing it on Friday!
Day 24: 2 years ago today, we met Reed and Lena for the first time. Today, I’m thankful for Reece’s Rainbow, the organization which helped us find our children. And I’m thankful for Sasha, our facilitator in Ukraine, who held our hands for the Ukrainian side of things.
Day 25: Today, I’m thankful for the internet. I use it for connecting with family and friends who live far away, for shopping, for my business, etc. I don’t know if we would have adopted, or at least not at this point in our lives, without the help of internet research. It is so helpful for so much.
Day 26: I’m thankful for medical care and insurance. One of the kids had to take a trip to the doctor today for an ear infection. It was very quick, easy and inexpensive to get what we needed and I’m thankful for that!
Day 27: Today, I’m thankful for warm winter clothes. We definitely needed them this morning with a temperature of 10 degrees Fahrenheit when I took Reed to school!
