    I am grateful that my 15-year-old son still gives me real snuggle hugs. Never mind that I’m now much shorter than he is, he still gives me a big bear hug and still asks me every morning if I’ve slept well and had good dreams (something he’s done since he was about 4).


  9. I’m grateful for a son who opened up a bit about his health. He’s always held things close to the vest. I’m thankful he felt he could share.

    I am thankful that even though it puts my son at risk, he is going into his VFW to make sure the bartender does not have issues with anyone when she cuts off the last drink at 9 and shoves everyone out the door at 9:45 as she has to be closed up by 10 (curfew in OH)
    I am thankful (even when grouchy) that I still have tomatoes to can that I brought in and put in the grow cart .

  12. Cherish that memory. My son is now 56 but, there are times when I can still feel those little 4 year old arms wrapped around my neck and hear the whispered words of ‘I love you, Mommy’. Although I must admit the bear hugs I receive from time to time now are still memory worthy.

  13. I am thankful for the two granddaughters we have and the one who is just old enough now (3) to hike with us in the Redwoods and begin to learn about and love nature. For Christmas she will be receiving her first pair of real hiking boots.
