On This Day I Am Very Thankful

Happy Thanksgiving!

I haven't been on here in months, but I decided that today was a good day to return.

On the day before people around our country go off the deep end with Black Friday sales specials-I- and the rest of my family-are thankful to just be alive. We are almost completely recovered from our injuries from the car accident earlier this summer, but now I'm almost two inches shorter from my spine compressing for some reason, and I still have a slight limp in the foot that was shattered, but I can walk. The pain's gone too, along with the need for painkillers.

This morning after breakfast my parents gave me a card with a sonogram inside of what is obviously a boy, and they told me they want me to name him, the only thing is it has to be a name that none of my relatives have (my Dad has nine brothers!) and we all have the same middle name (James). So far Alex and Kyle are my top picks. I'm excited beyond words!

Matthew and I are still together, and things with the girls have gone in directions we didn't think were possible, but we carry on.

Today I also ask that we keep in mind those who will go through today without some of their loved ones, and cherish those close to you.

I now know that you need to be thankful for what you have, and when you are what you receive takes on a greater meaning.

For now I'll stop, but I'll be back.

Black Friday has more recognition than Thanksgiving.

Corporations don't get money from people being thankful and happy, so they had to create Black Friday to keep us greedy. I'll call it Thankstaking.

My family and I refuse to go

My family and I refuse to go shopping on Thanksgiving or on Black Friday, to just not be a part of the mess. Matthew calls it Thanksgreeding!

welcome back...

sam. So your parents gave you a sonogram? does that mean your mom is prego again and you have a brother on the way? congrats if so. Also, that is interesting that things are still going w/ the girls. maybe you guys are both bi and didn't realize it? idk.

anyway, welcome back. I too, am thankful to be alive. and hoping to make it to the macklemore show on my bday, but we'll see what happens.

Well...it was a sonogram

Well...it was a sonogram with her name on it, taken about two weeks ago. My parents have know for a while, they just decided to wait until Thanksgiving to tell me. Everyone's happy too, so it's a positive thing.

Still deciding on his first name, right now Kyle is my favorite but kicking around Luke or Lucas.

Both of my Dad's are bi (they are both really close to my Mom too) and I think I'm going in that direction too. Matthew is still really confused about the whole thing, but I'm cool with things as long as he's into me.

I'm glad to be back, and really want to thank you for being there for me and being so supportive : )

Listening to the "Vengeance Falls" the new Trivium release, I'm enjoying it :))
