But despite of the lack of football, turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie - I find today as good a day as any to reflect on all that is good in my life.
I have so many things to be thankful for - too many to list, in fact - and I am grateful for the gifts that have been bestowed to me every single day... But today, I am mostly thankful for this little person who has enriched my life beyond belief, taught me more about love than I could have ever imagined and makes each and every day better by just being her amazing little self. I feel like I won the lottery every morning I wake up to her and the gift of motherhood is by far the greatest thing that has ever happened to me.
I love you sweet, little Isla. More than you will ever know.
Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Americans, may you - and everyone else out there - find something to be grateful for on this fine day. Asante sana Universe.
