I’m sure there’ve been plenty of Thanksgiving posts today about what people are grateful for and blessings and shit like that, and I’m definitely grateful for a lot of things and certainly recognize that my life could be a whole lot fucking worse than it is.  I have a lot of conflicting feelings about Thanksgiving, with the whole holiday being based around the beginning of a relationship that ended with the wiping out of an entire culture, and all – but I DO appreciate the sentiment of thankfulness that the holiday now centers around (we are NOTHING if not a nation of denial), and the family time, and, of course, FOUR WHOLE DAYS OFF IN A ROW!  WOO HOO!

I could give you a really long list of the things I love and am thankful for… most of them would be pretty predictable, others not so much.   And I might give you that list, maybe tomorrow, maybe the next day, maybe next month.

But there’s really only one thing I want to say today, and that is this: 

HI, MOM.

WE MISS YOU.

THANKGIVING IS NOT THE SAME WITHOUT YOU.

WE LOVE YOU.

LOVE, ALL OF US. 

Our very nice family

Our very nice family

 

How we really are

  1. Love your goofy family shot. Also, even though it’s not very holiday-y, I’m totally coveting The Bean’s curls. That is one fine boy you have there.
