The Best Thanksgiving

 These last 6 weeks have been quite the journey.  Quite out of the blue, an opportunity came to our daughter and son-in-law to adopt a baby. Just when they had closed the door on adding to their family, the Universe opened it. It has been a series of  miracles, with undeniable direction from the Creator. My heart is full to bursting with gratitude. Born this weekend, our daughter was the first non-medical person to embrace and welcome him. Poor dad, is still out of state, waiting to meet his new son...the only unhappy aspect of this whole incredible experience. Hopefully, next week, papers will be in order for them to fly home to him. Blasted red tape stuff.


But for now, all is well. Jonah has come to our family.
His name means "peace"...such a sacred feeling.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!
