Thanksgiving flashback

This picture was taken earlier today and it immediately reminded me of....

This one. It was taken five months ago, almost to the day, in Nanchang.

I guess I don't really need to tell you what I'm most grateful for this Thanksgiving, but I will anyway. Doug and I were married 13 years before this little answer to prayer came along, so needless to say I am endlessly thankful for my Kerry Lu. I'm thankful for every little giggle, every hug, every kiss, every new word or skill learned, every toy I have to pick up, even for (most) every typical, healthy, toddler tantrum. When she says "mama" in her husky little voice, I melt. I'm also thankful for the good health of myself and my family, for a comfortable little home, and for my friends and family. And I'm incredibly thankful for my wonderful husband, who has become an even more wonderful father. Happy Thanksgiving,everyone!
