hey happy thanksgiving!

Saturday, November 24

Hey again! Not sure how a whole week went by just now. While boxing up our apartment, each day has seemed like a sunrise wake-up with mister E and then 5 minutes and a bag of cheerios dumped on the floor later, it's midnight. But alas! We did get ourselves together enough to pack amongst the packing and head down to North Carolina for Thanksgiving with our good friends, Geri and Jason. You might have seen these two on my blog before. Jason has Cystic Fibrosis and the road to recovery since his double lung transplant has not been an easy one. He was admitted to the hospital on the day we arrived and had to stay overnight and into Thanksgiving, so we ended up cooking ourselves into a frenzy on Thursday and Friday and were able to have dinner all together on Friday afternoon. Geri and I were QUITE proud of that Thanksgiving table. She gets credit for all of it. I get credit for following instructions. ;) We are so grateful for friends like these two. Their optimism and gratitude even while in the thick of such a daunting trial is humbling and inspiring. Seeing them together in Jason's hospital room, giving each other a kiss goodnight on the eve of a holiday that should be spent with each other was heartbreaking. But their positivity was ever-present. We love them so much and are so grateful for their incredible example. It was a laid back few days with laughs and "remember when" moments and a heartwarming Thanksgiving dinner. We'll miss them bunches. If you'd like, you can read more about their story here.

I'm so grateful for my family. My husband who works so hard for us and the opportunity to be Everett's mama. We hope you had a beautiful thanksgiving with those that you love! Happy Saturday! AND WELCOME CHRISTMAS!!!!
