Thankfuls

Categories: Family, Happy Things

Two years ago we started a tradition of sitting down every night before bed starting on November 1st till Thanksgiving and writing down something we are thankful for on a slip of paper and putting it in a jar decorated with a cornucopia window cling. Iddo called them “Thankfuls” that first year and the name has stuck. This year we let Shimri and Shimei tell us what they are thankful for as well. Keep reading

Tonight as we danced Brett held Izri in his arms, Shimei took turns holding each of our legs and I held the girls’ hands as they danced around us. It was a moment of joy. It’s amazing what has happened in the last 8 years. And it will continue into eternity. Keep reading
