Sooooo thankful!

The other night, J handed me a piece of paper he'd found in a box in the closet. It was the discharge papers from when Little Miss was in the NICU after she was born. It was hard to read (I actually don't remember ever reading it, though I know I must have), as it instantly took my mind and heart back to reliving those nightmarish two weeks. You would never know that my big girl was born a preemie! I am so grateful for the care she received in the NICU (those nurses are angels) and for her helping me to realise that she is one tough cookie who is just determined to be in control as much as she can. Hmm... I wonder where she gets that from. ;-)

Thank YOU for reading through that little bit of mush--the icing on the cake is this lovely view outside my dining room window:

Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. Anastasia is a fighter! I love it. Happy Thanksgiving to you guys!

  2. I love it, too! Do you really have a turkey on your porch? WHY is there a turkey on your porch?

    Happy Thanksgiving, my friend!

  3. Isn't that funny?!! It is one of the wild turkeys that roam our neighborhood. She was resting on the hay bale and stood up when I peeked through the blinds with my camera.

  4. I think she was hiding from your crazy know the one!

  5. Ahhh, the NICU nurses are certainly worth thanking!
