Thankful. Every day. Thankful.
Last year for Thanksgiving, I talked about giving thanks for the little things.
This year I’m even more thankful for the huge, positive changes that have happened in my life over the last 12 months.
Leaving Las Vegas, clearly. Having not one, but two jobs I enjoy. The amazing privilege of helping raise my nieces. The perfect rental, in the perfect location, for this point in our lives.
And, as always, I’m thankful for a husband who makes me laugh every single day.
And I’m thankful for my incredible kid– who could have so easily turned out a basket case, given her gypsy-like upbringing, but instead is so grounded and self-assured I kind of want to be her when I grow up.
I’m swimming in gratitude this November, and every day since I moved to Colorado. I love how life delivers unexpected bounty around the next blind corner with unfailing regularity.
Oh hey there, struggling stepparent!
Listen, I put together a new website just for high-conflict blended families: Blended Family Frappé. Come on over and join the hundreds of other stepparents who are reclaiming their sanity one Sunday newsletter at a time.
