This Thanksgiving was with my side of the family this year. So my Mom decided that since most of her immediate family and their families would be together, she "needed" family photos. She has a Christmas project in mind.
So, my camera and I were happy to help.
And as I was editing these particular photos, I just laughed and found myself thinking of things about each one that I am SO thankful for.
That I have a step mom who I fondly call "Mommy". That even thru all said teenage angst is one of my very best friends.
Oh, and that she made me a balloon crown for winning the "pagent" we made up. I always knew I was prettier than those other girls.
Despite my upbringing.
Despite my past.
Despite my stupidity.
Despite my selfishness.
