I am thankful for:
10. Cranberry Relish.
9. Boise, Idaho.
8. Our house.
7. The beautiful foothills that surround Boise and serve as my refuge.
6. Coda, our aging german shorthair, who has endured less attention and exercise since Simon’s birth, yet still manages to bring me toys to play with and enthusiastically smell my breath as if she could eat it.
5. My friends and the mothers I see everyday who provide so much support and camaraderie.
4. My husband’s humor and way of brightening each and every day.
3. Simon’s smiles.
2. Hannah’s laugh.
1. My Family. Derek: you are the love of my life. Hannah and Simon: Words cannot describe my love. Mom, Dad, Peter: Thank you for all your support and love. My Extended Family: I am lucky to have each and every one of you in my life.
