Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. There is so much I love about this holiday from watching the Macy's parade to eating delicious food to the laziness that ensues after a big, fulfilling meal.
But the holiday is about much more than that, and often that meaning is lost in the hectic rush of the holiday preparations.
Our year started off on a rough note when Harper was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in February. Although it's a daily struggle, diabetes can be managed and controlled, and I am so very thankful for that. Many diseases that afflict children aren't as easily managed. Today she's healthy and thriving, and we've been lucky to have a wonderful support system of family and friends who help make our daily struggles a lot less stressful.
And of course, I am thankful for you, the readers of Pieces of a Mom. There are often days when I wonder if all this blogging is worth it, and then I receive an email from a reader saying that a post struck a chord with her and inspired her. There are many blogs out there, so when you come here daily to check in, please know it's very much appreciated.
On that note, I'm signing off to enjoy the day with my family. I hope you will do the same with yours or with whomever you are spending the holiday. xx
