I don’t know about you but sometimes I am so glad to have one holiday over with so that we can move on to the next. I feel guilty for admitting that because the most special day of the year for our family comes right around Thanksgiving so I feel a little pressure to make it extra special.
My twin boys were born on a “Black Friday”, Coming a little early at 31 weeks and healthy was a miracle. They weighed 4.2 and 3.7 lbs. So tiny!
My husband and I were married 9 years before these sweet little guys made our family complete.
Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on years past and hope for more wonderful years to come. So I can’t help but think of the week I spent pregnant in the hospital holding on to these babies as long as possible. How we tried to make it to 32 weeks.
They came earlier than we had hoped but who would have thought they would grow up as if they came spot on their due date. Although, 6 weeks in the NICU had its ups and downs, here we are 13 years later thankful beyond measure.
Needless to say, the holidays bring a whole different set of emotions for me. I love to decorate the house early to kick off all the celebrating but the real celebration is that my boys are with us and healthy.
