As I sit here watching The Birdcage and relaxing my feet from yesterday’s trek through Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom, I’m thinking about everything that has happened this year. I have so much to be thankful for, and the very best family that I could ever ask for! My dad had a stroke earlier this year but has made great progress in his recovery. He still needs a walker to get around but considering he was bedridden in the hospital I’d say that is an improvement! He still chokes when swallowing, which is the scary thing, but he’s here with us and that’s amazing! My mom is doing great as well. She has her hands full between work and my dad, but she is finally retiring this December and I’m so happy for her! She deserves her break finally! I’m thankful also that they help me in going back to school. I’m getting my AA degree this December as well! I finally feel like I’m making them both proud!
