Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Turkey Day, my dear internet friends!  What are you thankful for today?

 

 

Today I am thankful for the decision my parents made 16 years ago and then worked hard to accomplish – their decision to move to the U.S.

 

Without that decision it would be unlikely that I finished school and went on to attend a college of my choice.

 

Without that decision it would be unlikely that I would get my license and a car at 16.

 

 

Without that decision it would be unlikely that I would have gone to college, lived on campus, and met a boy in class.

 

Without that decision it would be unlikely that I would have graduated college and got a great job.

 

Without that decision it would be unlikely that I would have moved out to my own apartment at the age of 21 and in with a boy from class.

 

 

Without that decision it would be unlikely that I would have fell in love with said boy and ended up marrying him.

 

Without that decision it would be unlikely that my new little family would have expanded with a couple of pups and bought our own house.

 

Without that decision it would be unlikely that we would have gone on vacations, dined out at amazing restaurants, or taken strolls along the beach.

 

 

Without that decision it would be unlikely that we would have had our beautiful baby girl and continued to hold full time jobs.

 

Without that decision I wouldn’t have met and fell in love with my in-law family.

 

Without that decision it would be unlikely that I would be where I am.  That I would be this lucky.  That I would be surrounded by so much family.  That I would be this happy.

 

 

Happy Thanksgiving.
