Making Memories


I had the best Thanksgiving and it wasn't because of the food. My son was able to come home for leave for Thanksgiving.  After 9 months of not hugging him my arms and my heart felt whole. 

It is funny to see how much he changed.  My baby boy is no longer a boy. He is a man. He is the man I raised, but has the influence of all those that have loved him along the way.

One of my favorite moments was surprising my two nieces on Thanksgiving morning.  Under the guise of having a turkey emergency they came over to save Auntie from ruining dinner. E hid in the library until I said, "Hey, baby can you help me with the turkey." E responds with, "Of course, mama." My nieces flew out of their seats and latched onto him. 
E being the oldest cousin, is considered the favorite.  He is the eldest by 6 years, but his heart allows him to ignore the age difference and he gives each cousin his undivided attention making them each feel special. 
We spent our time making memories. Some shopping, some cooking, and playing rummy until the wee hours of the morning. I know when he signed up for the military that family time would be limited but I can honestly say this has been the best holiday for me in years.  Thanksgiving is supposed to be about giving thanks and being thankful for your family. I am very thankful to have these memories. 

A special thank you to my husband for doing the driving to bring my baby home to me. I am so blessed to have you in my life.
