Oh it's over..
We are thankful for Family, friends and a good long week off. We are thankful for Cheaper gas prices that saved us when driving 90+ miles a day everyday last week to see family. We are thankful for family coming into town and driving their own hundreds of miles to see us.
Miss T is thankful for - Mashed Potato's, Pumpkin Pie, french fries from Wendy's, chicken soup from Panera (St. Louis Bread Co here) unsalted top crackers, vanilla wafers, plain shortbread girl scout cookies, and Vanilla Frosties from Wendys! No wonder she does not like Carrots!!!
Daddy is thankful for -days off, sleeping in, play time with Miss T, cars that run, cheep gas, hugs and kisses, lots of saying "daddddaaaaa" and the start of Lost in Jan.
I am thankful for my my beautiful baby girl, my loving husband, brothers and sister that are the best cooks ever, sisters in law just for being there, my mom/grandma to Miss T, my sewing machine, family events that last jut long enough, fun with the nieces, friends that remind me how good things are in our lives and so much more...
We have been thanked by Grandmas that didn't have Miss T cry when they held her, aunts that got to spend quality time with, uncles that said we were good parents, friends that we shared food with and broke bread with, extra special out of the way trips to say hello.. and so much more...
NO THANKS -
No thanks to those that got drunk at holiday fests and bitched about stupid worthless items. Those that rolled their eyes, made snide side remarks, acted stupid when they were asked to tone down the loud and yelling, not acting like an adult in a family, not being able to share joy in others lives, drinking wine that was brought for a celebration before the recipients arrived and then laughed and said we missed out it was good. Rude unfamily like behavior and passive aggressive attitudes and actions. Lack of respect for the United Stated in which they live, option to move to the Europe that they love so much! Burn the F-ing place down for all I care!
I am trying so hard not to be hurt and upset by the actions of those in the no thanks bar but it's so hard when they are suppose to be in a family environment, I understand everyone being their own person and am sure learning a lesson on how some of my family members have felt about prior person in that place but this is out of hand, out of sorts and I am having such a hard time handling. Please God, give me strength!
