I am Thankful...

I am Thankful that we are home for the holidays. I don't just mean home in the town of Benbrook, TX where we live. I mean for the fact that we are spending the holidays in the comfort of our home outside of the hospital.

Last year we spent every holiday in the hospital while Gab undergone brain surgery. We didn't even celebrate Thanksgiving and because of her short term memory loss she didn't truly remember what Thanksgiving was. It is so nice this year to be able to celebrate the holidays with our family and be thankful everyone is healthy.

There are many more reason I am thankful this year and many more family members and friends I am thankful to have in my life. Being thankful to not be living in a hospital is just the number one change this year from last.

Gab now, a year later! A beautiful survivor of brain resection surgery removing left side of brain, lots of rehab, therapy weekly and relearning all about life!

My two other blessings in life.

I would say I have plenty to be thankful for!
