filling space

By Tara Zandra | November 27, 2013

If you’ve followed along on facebook, you know we’ve been busy. I want to get it all down but of course, tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I’m a bit beat.

I said earlier that I haven’t felt in a thankful mood but tonight my oldest child reminded me how unbelievably lucky I am. She is such a delight; smart, entertaining, and the best big sister, and a fantastic help to me in the kitchen. And despite her teen years, she is still as loving as she ever was and hugs from her are not half-hearted and the love she expresses is genuine.

Then there’s my Dee. My sensitive one. But a conundrum as well. She will cry over a lost piece of string (”But it was my special string!”) but accepts it when a pet fish dies. She has no interest in ever donating anything to anyone, but she’ll share without asking and wants to give things to people to make them happy. As a little sister, well, that’s a role she relishes- both to Tabi’s delight and disconcertion.

Of course neither of them would be possible without my hubby. God I love him so. All these years and we still prefer to spend time with each other over anyone else. He is truly the best man in the world for me. I hope I’m half as good to him as he is to me.

So, I came around and today I counted my blessings. There are many, and I know that.

My picture is completely unrelated. It’s also crappy since it was taken with my cell phone. This is Eddie Veddar at the Pearl Jam concert last Sunday night. I could listen to him sing all night, but had to settle for 3 hours.

    I love that he’s wearing a flannel. So 90’s!
