Thanksgiving

I woke up to a strangely quiet house today as my husband and daughter are away visiting the grandparents.  I took my time cleaning Ellie’s room and what began as a chore turned into an exercise of gratitude.  Seeing her presence in everything I pick up, her old toys that she once loved, her pajamas still so tiny, her half done drawings…made me think about how lucky I am to have been a witness to this life that has sprung from my womb and is now her own little person.  I felt overflowing happiness.  So even though I’m alone today, I know I will never be alone with her tucked away in my heart.

Happy Thanksgiving!
