We give thanks...

Today we celebrated our Thanksgiving as both Gerry and I worked yesterday. Mom and Dad came and we had a nice quiet day with lots of great food and rest. We even had our very own American Indian Girl with us for the meal (Okay so maybe it was just Frankie dressed up for the holiday). We ate till we couldn't eat anymore and we gave thanks.
Thanks that Dad is here with us after our huge medical scare with him this past year. Thanks that we have one another to share this day with and are blessed to have a table full of food. Thanks that all of our dear friends in India, Docs, medical team, Surrogates, Egg Donors and Henry and family are safe and well. Thanks that we live in a country where we do not have to face terrorism and fear for our safety every day we step outside. Thanks for our friends and family who have shown support and love through our long and difficult journey. Thanks that we are not in Mumbai at this time as I know my husband, being a firefighter and military guy would have been wanting to do anything he could do to help whether it meant putting him in harms way or not. The list of things we are grateful for is endless and I could write for days.

3 of our Support Group members who just got back from India received the wonderful news they are pregnant and we couldn't be happier for them. We are truly hoping that this is an amazing year ahead for all and for us, that we will be holding our beautiful child in our arms at long last.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Despite the anger, fear, and sadness I felt over the events in Mumbai, your photos made me smile. For that, I give thanks. I also give thanks for the fact that you're in AZ and nowhere near our dog...

OMG ... I can't believe the torment you put poor Frankie through.

What a lovely smile I have in my heart seeing your pics.

Tell G-Force that I would be fighting alongside him to battle the dickheads in Mumbai, and kneeing them in the groin ... and telling them off for causing problems for their mothers.

Okay ALL for the record...(so I don't get any 'cruelty to animals' people knocking on my door) LOL

Frankie is a great sport and probably has as much if not more fun then us dressing up. She howls and really gets into it. She only had the costume on for a few minutes just to show Papa and Gramma her new Halloween duds for next year.

For those who know me, I am a TOTAL animal freak and I love my dog more then most humans. (no joke)

Love you guys for visiting our blog...
