I have been dreading this day of thanks. This day of thanks when I have so much, and at the same time, so little, to be thankful for. This day of thanks surrounded by reminders and triggers of our life without you. This day of thanks I was certain would be full of awkward pauses and avoided moments trying to circle around the mention of your name.
But, in the midst of the beautiful chaos that is Thanksgiving Day something unexpected happened. Something that I should’ve anticipated as the love of our family surrounded me. Something that I will eternally be grateful for; your name was spoken, you were loved, you were remembered. So, today, on this day of thanks, that is what I am most thankful for baby boy; for family and friends who love, miss, and remember you as much as we do.
