So Thankful

Today I was talking to Gavin about Thanksgiving and being thankful. He was so funny. He began thanking for all kinds of things like kiwi and fall leaves. He didn't really understand but I sure did like hearing the gratitude in his voice for the little things. It's not really about the big stuff anyway. It's good to be thankful for all the little things that bring delight and contentment to our lives... even kiwi.
We headed out for our annual fall tradition.. picking the pumpkin at Campbell's Orchard. We got all kinds of fun things like gourds, apple cider, fresh broccoli, apple chips and yes, the pumpkin. It's a tradition. I LOVE traditions. They give me that special something to look forward to.
Today, I am thankful for so many things. But mostly, I am thankful for my family and that feeling of contentment that I feel right now. It may change, but right now... I feel it.
