think: thankful thursday.

it's hard to believe that last year, we were doing this alone. a huge chunk of our hearts on the other side of the world. last year i avoided the "norm" and went to chicago to spend thanksgiving. i remember we had fun and laughed a lot, but despite being surrounded by family, i remember feeling very alone. this year, mr.a is home. he isn't eating instant mashed potatoes or drinking egg nog from a can. he isn't sitting in a tent in the middle of an afghan mountain range. he's here and he's safe. he's home.
while you're enjoying your family, and your meal and the comfort of your home today, please remember the thousands of soldiers who are away from their families, serving our country.

today i'm thankful that our family is together.
but i'm even more thankful for those that are not.
happy thanksgiving.
