At Thanksgiving all 3 kids were able to join us. We went to Mom's and had Thanksgiving with Mom, Larry, Scott, Justin, Chelsea, Jacob, Cody and Paul. It was so wonderful to sit with those you love and reflect on life. I came to several conclusions.
If I could live anywhere in the world it would be in San Antonio where my family is, and Texas where I have extended family. I have resisted embracing San Antonio. I think this is the longest it has ever taken me to embrace where I live but I have come to a feeling of contentment. Yes, contentment!! That was my goal for 2010!
I am at peace with my job. I realize that I do like teaching the little ones. I am at peace with my kids. I have found that their character surpasses both Paul and I at times. Only God could make that happen.
After Thanksgiving events included decorating inside and outside the house. While decorating the tree the kids talked about when each ornament was made or given to us. The discussions were so fun, and warmed my heart.
What a wonderful life filled with thankfullness, peace and contentment.
