Happy Thanksgiving. I have come to realize that I have a lot to be thankful for.
I am thankful to my amazing wife and wonderful daughter. Amber is the most supportive person I know, and Kaitlyn continues to “wow” me every day.
I am thankful to my parents and my brother. They have always stood by me, even when they thought I was wrong.
I am thankful to our friends. Jen has always been willing to help with and hang out with Kaitlyn. The Spragues came into our lives just a our world was about to change, and they have been a blessing to us, and their boys have been a blessing for Kaitlyn. We are thankful to have Angelica living back in Tallahassee, too.
I am thankful for the Miracle League and all of the volunteers. More so, I am thankful to Kaitlyn’s #1 buddy Sarah and all of the SPAA members. They are awesome.
I am thankful that Kaitlyn has taken an interest in running. She beat me to the finish line in our first race in the spring, but we are having a rematch today at our local Turkey Trot. I am hopeful that I can provide an update later and brag that I beat her, but I doubt that will happen. We have a few more races coming up together, starting in January with one at her school, then one in February in conjunction with the Breast Cancer Marathon, and then one in April for Autism Awareness.
I am sure that there is somebody that I left out on here, but rest assured that I am thankful for you, too.
