{So Much to Be Thankful For}

Happy Thanksgiving!

There are so many things in life that I have to be thankful for. My family, my home, my goofy basset hound Charlie, my friends ... the list goes on and on.

But the one thing I'm REALLY thankful for this year is the health of my almost-two-year-old son, Cade.

In September of 2007, Cade was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma, a form of childhood cancer. I am very thankful, that on this Thanksgiving Day, I can say that my son is currently cancer free.

He brings so much joy to my life. His laughter is contagious, his personality is hysterical, his love for life is fierce, and when he wraps his little arms around my neck and says "mama" I just completely melt.

Only a mother (or father) can really understand the love you have for your child. I look at him daily and thank God for the gift He has given to me and my husband. So, on this Thanksgiving Day, I encourage all of you to hug your little ones a little tighter and be thankful for each day you have with them. Each day we have is a gift. My prayer for you today is that you never take one breath for granted.
