We have returned from a successful trip to Chicago for Thanksgiving with my side of the family. The girls had a wonderful time seeing their Gram and Da, hanging out with Aunts, Uncles and of course the people they most wanted to see, their cousins.

A few things that I confirmed I should be thankful for from the trip:

  • Putting new tires on the car less than a month ago
  • Getting new brakes the day before leaving for our trip.
  • Stopping to wash out my left contact lense when we were only two minutes north of downtown KC.
  • Continuing a family tradition of always saying a Hail Mary prayer as we left the driveway at the beginning of our trip.
  • Working seatbelts.
  • Not hitting the 8 point buck as it darted out across the highway while I was driving 70 MPH, in the dark, with the kids and Mary asleep in the back.
  • Safe travel to and from our home this past week to see loved ones.
