On this Thanksgiving, I once again find myself overwhelmed with things for which I am thankful. I am thankful for my family and my two beautiful children. Thankful for their health, their happiness, their expanding personalities.
I am thankful that there are days they talk so much I think I just might lose my mind.
I am thankful for technology giving Drew the wonderful gift of hearing, and communication.
I am thankful that I actually heard Drew's Dad say to Drew one day, under his breath, "Would you shut the h*** up?" And I'm thankful that we both laughed so hard we cried at this statement, since there was a day we thought we might never hear Drew's sweet voice.
I am thankful that I get to hear Drew say, "dube (love) you too," every day.
I am thankful for hugs, kisses, story times. Quite moments together. Thankful for their unconditional love.
Most of all, I am thankful that Drew and his Sister are mine. And thankful for all of you who are sharing in Drew's hearing story. Drew and his sister have given us many things to be thankful for this year. I wonder what they have in store for 2009?
