Giving Thanks – Day 2 November 19, 2012

Filed under: Daily Blog — Robin @ findgoodineveryday @ 5:45 pm

I am so thankful for my family.  I know that may seem like an easy one, but the last 4 months have not been easy on our family.  As I’ve said over and over on this blog, we left our family behind when we moved to Rhode Island.  No more Wednesdays with Nana and Kristin.  No more sleepovers at Meema’s.  No more easy drives to see Jen, Scott and Hayes.  No more simple last minute family gatherings.  This isn’t a case of you don’t realize what you have until it’s gone because we knew we had it good.  We knew how fortunate we were to have our family so close.  This is a case of we didn’t realize how lucky we are to have our family come see us so often!

We are thankful that Meema, Nana and Papa, Jen and Scott and Hayes, and Kristin have all made the efforts to come see us in Rhode Island.  There have been several trips…  Whether they drive or fly, they’ve come a lot, and we love it!  I am grateful to have such dedicated family that are willing to make the long drive or pay for plane tickets, especially since it is not as easy for us to get down there for quick trips.  We can’t wait to have a house big enough to host them all more comfortably (and maybe then they will come even more!)  It’s been wonderful to share our new life with them.  And I can’t say thank you enough to each and every one of them.

Our Thanksgiving gathering from 2011 – a weekend full of awesome memories!
