With each passing thanksgiving, much like each passing day, we are even more thankful for our loved ones in our lives. This year, although we are not extremely religious people we have had to say our share of prayers, thankfully those prayers have been heard and my husband’s father, my father in law is feeling much better with his treatments. Not even 2 months ago we heard news you never wants to hear… Cancer. For my husband this was twice as hard having lost his mother to her battle with Cancer just 9 years ago 😦 , even harder for him that it was 2mths before our wedding.
Once again, a reminder within our lives that life is too short and to completely cherish the time with your loved ones.
Thank god we do.
I am SO thankful for all our family and friends, I am also thankful for the photos I am known for taking. A very special project involving one set of my wonderful aunts and uncles of photos from when they were dating up until recently, to celebrate their 25th Anniversary! ❤ Another small reminder of just how much I cherish those photographs and need to capture them digitally to ensure we have them forever!
Today, we had a day to relax around our home, exactly what we all needed. I took a moment to myself and went on a drive to capture some of the beauty within our community. I truly do feel blessed to live where we do, in a small community, yet it has everything we truly need, including amazing scenery and wildlife.
Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours.
Although we all face our battles in life, our own challenges or struggles, when you stop for a moment and take a look around,
its all worth it and what really matters is right here in our hearts. ❤
