Gotta to be different

Well lots of people posted their days of thanks during November, since it is the month of Thanksgiving. But I was late on getting started and actually wanted to take December and remember all the wonderful things from this year as it comes to a close. Not sure I will get on here to do it daily but I am going to try. So here is day 1 of things I am grateful for this year:

This year I got to travel down to Alabama (twice) and see some very dear friends. It was nice to reconnect with friends I had not seen in a while and to introduce Little Man to my friends and my passion for space. Space Camp and Alabama were a huge part of my life for many years and I am so glad that despite my absence in recent years those friendships have withstood the test of time. It was fun to laugh and visit and remember the love and acceptance that always came from this "family".

The second trip down to Alabama allowed me to see some friends from Canada and introduce Little Man to some "aunties". These women have been a great source of strength for me. They were some of the first people I told about my plans to adopt almost 4 years ago and this was their first time getting to meet him face to face. I wish we had had more time, but I am so glad for the time I got with them.

Friendships new and old are wonderful. I am so glad I took the time to renew the old friendships and bring them into my child's life. We are blessed by these people.
