This blog has been a work in progress - thought about many times, dismissed, considered again, and now, finally begun.
There's something about spending time on the beach and realizing it's November and that I'm on the beach. That realization came this afternoon, and that is how we celebrated the beginning of November.
Speaking of beginnings, there are many taking place in the Chaney household. One new beginning, and possibly the most obvious, our move to Wewahitchka, FL in May of this year. Another beginning, and soon to be even more obvious, the anticipation of the arrival of Baby Adelaide, who will take up permanent residence in our home in March. Now this beginning, this blog and the start of a new month. I've always been one to enjoy organization and order, and while I may not always be successful at either, somehow starting this blog on the first of a month seems appropriate, and somehow even more so given that I didn't plan it this way.
This being the month in which we will celebrate Thanksgiving, it seems right to begin (and end) with something I am thankful for.
I am thankful for my family. I am reminded often of how far away I am from them, which in turn reminds me of how much I love and appreciate them, which also reminds me of how thankful I am for a husband who is supportive and comforting when missing them is plain ol' tough.
Funny how when you think of one thing you're thankful for, it turns into a whole list.
You should try it.
